Today’s GIGsoup track of the day is ‘Heart and Soul’ from British band The Moons. Released 31st March via Schnitzel Records, the single is taken from band’s new LP ‘Mindwaves’ released 2nd June.

Mixing Joe Meek style production with the best of the glitter rock era, ‘Heart and Soul’ is an ode to a scorned lover. Devilish rhythms blend fuzzed guitars with chugging T-Rex-esque riffs, with singer Andy Crofts’ subversive words, “You can’t make a fool out of me”, defiant.

As Crofts puts it, “Heart and soul is about a girl, a temptress who pulls you in with her looks and spits you out. A girl who reaches into your heart and soul and takes all the good out of you and then moves on to her next victim.”

Formed in Northampton 2008, The Moons is the ideas of singer/guitarist/songwriter, Andy Crofts. With two critically acclaimed albums to date, ‘Life On Earth’ (2010) and ‘Fables of History’ 2012 (produced by The Moons and Stay Kybert), The Moons are purveyors of the great British pop song.

Crofts’ songwriting craftsmanship deals with typical modern day life. With a mixed melting pot of melody, texture and influence, The Moons are honest songwriting personified with exquisite arrangement and glorious production which harks back to a golden era in classic songwriting.

Lauded by The Kinks’ Dave Davies and The Zombies’ Rod Argent, they have performed live on the BBC for the Janice Long and Mark Lamarr shows and their incessant touring has seen them build a loyal fanbase with sell-out shows up and down the country including the 100 Club, London.

The eagerly anticipated new album, ‘Mindwaves’, is released 21st July on Schnitzel Records.
