Moon Tapes – ‘Desire’

I first discovered Moon Tapes late last year and I’ve been a shameless fanboy ever since. This week the Amsterdam foursome delivered their self-titled EP featuring the opener ‘Desire’. It’s gloomy new wave with a hazy twist. Smiths fans should find something to smile about. Speaking of, have you heard of Mexrrissey? A Mexican band that plays Smiths covers (video here). Anyways, grab a Moon Tapes download, or stream the rest at Bandcamp.

Moon Tapes – ‘A Little Bit Of Paris / Sleepy’

Moon Tapes released their first official singles today, ‘A Little Bit Of Paris’ and ‘Sleepy’ (download). It follows the brilliant demo ‘Back In Love’, which I gushed about last November. The Amsterdam four piece craft new wave pop gems with a reverb-heavy, lo-fi charm. ‘A Little Bit Of Paris’ should sit well with fans of The Smiths, there’s also a dash of Alex Turner to the vocals. Bright days ahead!

Moon Tapes are a new band to put on your musical radar! The Amsterdam four piece have posted a handful of demo songs, the latest being ‘Back In Love’. It’s a beautiful tune with a lo-fi, dream pop feel. The vocals steal the show, with a new wave/crooner charm that sucks you in. Check out more via Soundcloud.
