Romanian trio Moonlight Breakfast are Bazooka (production, drums, keys, clarinet), Christie (vocals, sampler) and Adita (keys, guitar, sampler). Their music is cosmic pop, pure and unfiltered, as you can hear on their current single, Look Up.
Opening with some light arpeggios before the rumbling bass and tricky, angelic vocals kick in with some verve, the song has a real sense of swing and energy to it, as poised as it passionate. It’s not hard to see why the band have been picked up to soundtrack adverts with their stylish sound.
You can hear hints of Grimes, CHVRCHES and Röyksopp coming through in the low-key theatricality of arrangement and vocals, but there’s an aura of originality and energy to the track – and the band – that really sets them apart.
Look Up is out now via Echoism Records and can also be streamed on Spotify as well as other digital outlets. The band are currently planning a European tour which will include gigs in the UK and Ireland – check out their Facebook page for more information.
