Born in the shadows, somewhere between the rollercoaster and the carousel, The Moon Kids describe their sound as "fairground pop", a trashy, thrashy, neon-lit affair that's bright, bolshy and destined to make your heart beat a little faster.
Their debut release - The Moon Kids EP - is a perfect introduction to their world of punk-rock love affairs, adrenaline highs and those late, late nights when anything can happen.
And then there's the darkness. The undertow running through songs like Rollercoaster People, Carousel or Kootch Punk is what happens when the carnival is over, when the shadows turn inky black and the night closes in. When your heart starts to pound in your chest like a bird in a box ...
The Moon Kids are David Barr (vox/guitar), Connor Whyte (guitar),
and Rory Buchanan (drums).
