Be romanticized by the bittersweet sounds of Moon Tapes
‘Speculation’ is the debut album by Amsterdam-based group Moon Tapes.
It is due for release mid-January 2019 on the UK/NL label Mink Records.
In drawing inspiration from artists like Serge Gainsbourg, Francoise Hardy and The Smiths, but also 70’s film scores and the aesthetic of Art Deco, they’ve found a new vision and style for their music.
For this album, Moon Tapes have maintained their dreamy-sunshine pop identity, but have grown a lot musically by experimenting with lush strings quartets, combining vintage and modern production techniques and also thematically in their songwriting.
The group has already performed at many festivals and venues in The Netherlands and abroad, such as Sziget Festival, London Calling at Paradiso, Melkweg, but also on TV shows like ‘De Wereld Draait Door’ (Holland’s most viewed talk show).
