Single review: Man of Moon – Strangers

It is fair to say the music team at SNACK have been fans of Man of Moon for some time. There’s no real need to ask why, the more pertinent question would be why you aren’t? Well, aren’t yet, because if ‘Strangers’ is anything to go by, the band will be winning fans over in huge numbers by the time their debut album, Dark Sea, is released.

A pulsating intro, the autobahn revving rhythm, perky percussion breaks and more, ‘Strangers’ doesn’t let up.

Man of Moon, right from the start, have made songs that bristle with passion, and energy bursting out of every seam. Now, they’re still doing exactly that, but they’ve further honed their craft. One of the marks of a great band is when they marry consistency with quality, and that’s what this duo does. Strap in and enjoy the ride, the album is likely to be a belter.

‘Strangers’ is out now.
