Liverpool-based outfit Ernest Moon presents 'Big Wow', a short whimsical single they describe as a "throwaway tune about the ways of a working class young'un from round our way sometime in the not too distant past."
In 'Big Wow', the language is straight out the gob of the protagonist....Johnny B.. a sixteen year old skally....with starlit dreams of cars and girls and toilets on every floor.
'Big Wow' was recorded during the lockdown at Liverpool's Ark Recording Studios by Steve Powell (Michael Head & the Red Elastic Band) and Rory Ballantyne. Several years ago, the band debuted with their 'Ba-jesus' EP, recorded at Orphan Recording in Dublin with Peter Ashmore and Gavin Glass (Paul Brady, John Grant, Lisa Hannigan, Mundy), foreshadowed by the witty drunken single 'Satdeenight Ready'. They followed up with their 'Uh' EP in July 2019.
'Big Wow' is a prelude to the band's impending 8-track release with Violette Records this coming summer "It's a taster of what that release will not sound like. A bit of careless crack while waiting," says Brian.
As of April 29, 'Big Wow' will be available digitally via iTunes and for Spotify. It can already be pre-ordered via Bandcamp.
"Pop punk full of spunk. These Liverpudlians make a great entry, full speed ahead in overdrive and wetting sonic appetites for more of their awesome nonsense... lyrical wit as entertaining as the Sultans of Ping at the best of times" ~ Big Takeover Magazine
"Hypnotic... Poignant... wholly addictive and reaching back to old-school punk for its influence" ~ Peek-a-Boo Magazine
"Blend of the profound and the profane, the witty and the wise, this sonic route that swerves between belligerent pop, post-punkery, warped indie and the sort of uniqueness that only seems to come from their fair city that makes their music so great" ~ Dancing About Architecture
