Today sees the release of ‘Ride with the Hurricanes’ – the highly anticipated new EP from Scottish rock band, The Moon Kids. Billed as Scotland’s next big thing, the band consists of David Barr (vocals), Connor Whyte (guitar), Craig Reid (bass) and Michael Adamson (drums).
Recorded in the Scottish Borders with music producer, SAW, the five track EP centres around the universal theme of remaining positive during unsettling times. The title of the EP derives from a line in the band’s last single, ‘Touch of Venice’ and regards Barr’s hurricane experience in Mexico last October.
The band certainly aren’t short of support – from receiving the thumbs up from London Grammar, Run DMC and Tom Waits when their song ‘Luna Park’ reached the final of the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville, to opening for iconic Blondie drummer, Clem Burke when he last played in Glasgow, to receiving frequent spins on BBC Radio! Though the bands radio play isn’t limited to the UK and they’ve recently grabbed the attention of Rodney Bingenheimer, who plays their music on his stateside show.
If a new EP wasn’t exciting enough, the band will also be releasing a music video for their thrilling new single, ‘Cold Storm Cinema’ on Wednesday 10th March- a track that demonstrates how the band continue to put their own individual stamp on the music scene with their scuzzy riffs and infectious choruses.
