“I’m going to be cheeky here and pick one band […] Half Moon Run – potentially one of the most important bands debuting an album this year. It’s progressive without being pretentious.” Ben Lovett, Mumford & Sons, in NME on Oct 3rd, 2012
“What most agreed was the best new band of the week, Half Moon Run. The Montreal trio match songwriting (and harmonies) of ‘60’s folk rock with the atmospherics of Radiohead. I was instantly impressed”- Brooklyn Vegan at M for Montreal, November, 2011
Half Moon Run is a talented young band from Ottawa, Ontario and Comox, British Columbia. It was in a practice studio situated in Montreal’s Mile-End district, through the hardships of time constraints and flat-lined bank accounts, that the trio bonded and created their unique sound, fusing together the restless elements of indie, pop and folk with beautiful rhythmic harmonies, delicate guitar lines and a hint of warm electronica.
Armed with solid training and raw talent, they mix and combine their different musical backgrounds. Their complex arrangements, inspired by both classical and modern composers, are particularly striking to hear and see during their live shows. Devon Portielje’s remarkable voice is beautifully backed up by Connor Molander and Dylan Phillips. Phillips often plays drums and keys simultaneously as Molander and Portielje shuffle between guitar, keys, samplers, and percussion folky three-part harmonies hold down moody, psychedelic arrangements and electronic-infused soundscapes. They have recently welcomed a 4th member on stage, multi-instrumentlist Isaac Symonds, who adds his voice as well as playing guitar, keyboards and percussions.
Currently in the home stretch of an 18 month international tour alongside artists such as Mumford & Sons, Metric, Pat Watson and Of Monsters and Men, the international buzz has hit fever pitch, with Half Moon Run being deemed one of the “Top Bands To See” at SXSW 2013 and performing this summer at Glastonbury, Lollapalooza and Reading festivals. Half Moon Run’s debut album Dark Eyes, originally released in Canada by Indica Records in March 2012, has been picked up by Glassnote Entertainment Group who will oversee the global release of DARK EYES in 2013.
