The Moon Kids Short Info

The Moon Kids are a three-piece. They make electrifying pop that sounds like fireworks and neon lights and fairground thrills.

The Moon Kids began performing live in 2013 and rapidly created a buzz with their energetic shows. Bright lights, chiming six-strings and powerful pop hooks helped them create a carnival atmosphere during their sets at some of the summer's major festivals - including T In The Park and Wickerman - and their songs have been described as "a giddy rewrite of everything Buddy Holly warned you about".

Their first official release - The Moon Kids EP - won radio play and attention from the national press. A feature in LA's revered blog landed them a slot on BBC TV while Ravechild raved about their "bolshy presence". They've also done live acoustic sessions for AU Review, BBC radio and had each of their single releases added to the BBC Radio Scotland playlist.

Regularly seen in the studio alongside Snow Patrol/Super Furry Animals/Mogwai producer Michael Brennan Jnr, The Moon Kids have played alongside acts such as Embrace, Shed Seven and The View.

Currently finishing work on their first album, The Moon Kids will release their new single in Oct. With the release of the album next summer and a UK tour planned, 2016 is set to be a big year.
