"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 trio 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 flatlined 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.
On the heels of a 32-date in 32 days tour of Europe in May, and 5 months after the Canadian release of their debut album DARK EYES, the international buzz has hit fever pitch. Metric have chosen Half Moon Run to support their current 25 date U.S. tour, and the band has signed in the U.S. with Marty Diamond at Paradigm Agency.
The release of the album in the U.S. and Europe is planned for early 2013. Half Moon Run finishes off 2012 with a run of UK dates, Iceland Airwaves festival, Inrocks Festival in Paris and another Northern-American run with Patrick Watson, ending with a headline gig in Montreal at Le National December 7th. They then head off to Australia where their album is out on newly formed label Indica Australia/MGM!
