THING OF THE DAY: 7th November 2012 – HALF MOON RUN
HALF MOON RUN then, their new album, Dark Eyes, is a rather warm and glowing fusing together of the familiar elements to be found somewhere near that warm rich blend of considered North American indie pop and slightly left field and not so obvious U.S alt.folk. Dark Eyes is an album alive with gentle songs, an album laced with golden colour, a band armed with beautifully inviting harmonies, quietly delicate guitar lines and just a hint of warm electronica. Uncluttered glowing beauty from the quietly clever Canadian trio, and the threesome are in London town this week. Catch Half Moon Run over in Bethnal Green, East London, at the Sebright Arms, this coming Thursday evening (8th November), as well as up there in Glasgow on the evening afterwards. Half Moon Run aren’t really doing anything that radically different, they taste rather a lot of the current crop of North American alt.indie folk flavoured bands, you might even detect just a little too much Radiohead in there along with the Animal Collectives and such if you really want to be over-picky about it, you really shouldn’t allow yourself to be too picky, Dark Eyes is just something to sit back with and just enjoy without getting bogged down in the whole taking apart of it all. Half Moon Run are just a beautiful pleasure, simple as that, go enjoy… hear Half moon Run here
