The next “next big thing” in a city full of them, Montreal trio Half Moon Run aren’t likely to see their buzz dry up with the release of their debut album. Often described as the sonic spawn of Radiohead and Fleet Foxes – they prove they can stretch their signature sound across a full LP without losing anything significant.
They layer reverby, gravitas-imbued folk-pop harmonies over moody, intricate keyboards, plucked guitar, deftly deployed percussion and occasional electronic flourishes. They also have an ear for subtlety and dynamics, with arrangements that sound remarkably full for a three-piece yet never overstuffed.
