What Moon Things: The Astronaut
Drawing inspiration from a range of influences including the Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Modest Mouse, and the Cure, NY-based – What Moon Things blends distorted guitar hooks, somber synthesizers, and the rubbed-raw vocals of Jake Harms and John Morisi to jolt listeners wide awake with stinging dreamo (shoegazey, dreamy, and a little bit emo…) sound.
The band began recording together in the early summer of 2013, and within a few frenetic months had completed their eponymous debut LP. What Moon Things is managed by Left Brain Artist Management (founded by Deerhunter and Drive-by Truckers producer David Barbe, also member of Sugar) in Athens, GA. The band is set for a June 3rd issue on 12” vinyl and CD as the inaugural release on the Athens label Hot Grits Records.
