Known for their heavy percussive riffs and layered vocal harmonies, Half Moon Run have carved out a name for themselves since the release of their debut offering ‘Dark Eyes’ in 2012, which NME described as a “quietly stunning record”.

Since then, the dynamic four-piece has achieved critical acclaim for their live performances, consistently delivering intense energetic sets that showcase the band’s stunning three-part harmonies and prowess playing multiple instruments on-stage. “From the minute they took the stage, the four-piece had the audience captured in a euphoric trance with their emotive performance”, said UK publication The Upcoming in a five-star review of the band’s recent London Roundhouse show.

Released in October 2015, ‘Sun Leads Me On’ is the sophomore album from Half Moon Run, a record that eschews the alt-folk melancholia of its predecessor in favour of a collective voyage of personal self-discovery. In a glowing review, DIY Mag said, “Half Moon Run sit somewhere between accomplished musicians and potential game-changers”.

Half Moon Run last month hit the stage for an epic set at the world famous Glastonbury Festival. BBC captured the band delivering a high-intensity rendition of ‘Turn Your Love’, which you can check out here.
