Live: THE BIG MOON // The Lexington, London
It’s been a long wait since their Mercury Music Prize nominated debut Love In The 4th Dimension, but boy has it been worth it.
The Big Moon announced their second album, Walking Like We Do, due in January next year, and with it an intimate show at The Lexington. Having recently completed a tour supporting Pixies, playing venues up to fifty times the size, we can only imagine that the tiny London venue felt like a closet to the four-piece.
Starting us off with old favourites such as Silent Movie Susie and Sucker, the band also treated us to a few unreleased tracks off their upcoming album, including Take A Piece, Why, and Don’t Think. Recent single It’s Easy Then exuded a somewhat radiant feel, like bubbles being blown on a cool summer’s day, much in contrast to Bonfire, for which frontwoman Juliette Jackson joined the crowd in a small but fierce mosh pit. A strong finish to the night then began with Cupid and ended with latest single Your Light.
Proving to us that they got this perfectly right, The Big Moon showed us once again that they are the girls we’ve been waiting for.
