Half Moon Run - A Blemish In The Great Light

Release Date: 01 Nov 2019
More Info:

Half Moon Run return with their third album, A Blemish In The Great Light, via Glassnote. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, Beck, Killers) and featuring the singles Then Again and Flesh & Blood. The word everyone comes back to when describing Montreal indie rockers Half Moon Run is “complex” (The Guardian, Exclaim, et al.) Whether they’re billed as dreamy alt-pop, bucolic alt-folk, or psychedelic indie rock, the four multiinstrumentalists Devon Portielje (vocals, guitar, piano, percussion), Conner Molander (vocals, guitar, keyboard, piano, pedal steel, bass, harmonica), Dylan Phillips (vocals, drums, piano, keyboard), and Isaac Symonds (vocals, drums, mandolin, synth, bass) have built their name on cerebral, acrobatic arrangements and harmonies that lilt prettily till they turn feral.


Their first album, Dark Eyes, placed two A-list singles on BBC Radio 1 and went platinum in Canada, earning them a nod as a Rolling Stone “band to watch.” They followed up with Canadian Gold Record Sun Leads Me On (Glassnote), which had them touring furiously through Europe and North America and got them a Juno nod for Breakthrough Group of the Year in 2016. “a soaring return from the Montreal four-piece.” - CLASH. “their immediacy and wide-screened encompassing sound is second to none” - SOS MUSIC. Tour dates: 06th Nov - SWX, Bristol 07th Nov - Electric, Brixton 08th Nov, The Garage, Glasgow 09th Nov - O2 Ritz, Manchester 12th Mar - The Roundhouse, London
