Mooncake is a Moscow post-rock band comprised of two guitars, a bass, cello/keyboards and drums. The band has made a name for itself having developed its own style and become quiet popular among connoisseurs of genre both home and abroad. By now Mooncake shared the stage with such bands as God Is An Astronaut, Explosions In The Sky, Russian circles and also toured Russia and Ukraine.
The ideal balance between rapture and grief has always been Mooncake's distinctive feature, their music is a perfect example of intstrumental, lyrical music without vocals. In the end the band came up with its own style and sound that one can easily recognize. In his review of the band's new single "Cast the route" (2009) Jordan Walz (TheSilentBallet.com) wrote:
"After a successful debut album, Mooncake has released a single that points toward changes in the near future. I'm more excited about this band than I've ever been. Cast the Route witnesses a sophisticated band that has defeated its demons and seemingly nothing is standing in its way for a knockout sophomore album. Russia has long been waiting for a band to champion over its Western competition. In a few years time, Mooncake may be that band".
Today Mooncake is working on new material for its second LP that is planned to be released in 2011.
