Gig Review – Man of Moon – Stereo, Glasgow – 22nd February

It says a lot that having formed in 2012 that Man of Moon can still be described as innovators at the front of the Scottish new wave.  On the evidence of the long awaited follow up to Medicine, their dark new Chemicals EP, and an intensely electric and brooding performance at a sold out Stereo, they’ve set themselves up nicely to kick on to bigger things when the album comes together.   Highlights on the night were new single Skin (New Order meets raw edged techno) and the now classic, Sign. A special mention goes to whoever put together the projected visuals, they were top notch and felt like a vital part of the performance.

 

Overall the Man of Moon live experience has the feel of the early 2000’s 2 people and a laptop experimentation but with focus, drive and tunes. They’ve been lined up to support the mighty Doves at SWG3 later in the year, can’t wait to hear the new tunes over the big speakers.   

 

You can stream the new EP on all the major platforms or, even better, support the band by picking up the vinyl or digital download at instinctiveracoon.bandcamp.com/album/chemicals-ep
