Live review: The Big Moon - Village Underground 02.05.17

With all the hype and various in-store events surrounding the release of The Big Moon's debut album, 'Love In The 4th Dimension', the band headed to London's Village Underground for a hometown show. 

The four-piece have been hotly tipped, alongside the likes of Black Honey and Dream Wife, for quite some time but have recently come into their own and are predicted to go far. 

As the venue steadily reaches capacity, the feeling that it will be a night to remember lingers in the air of this sold out show tonight. The band have rapidly grown in popularity since forming a couple of years back from a bedroom in the capital. They then gigged at the-then little known Visions Festival in Hackney, before progressing to performing the festival rounds with the likes of Latitude, End of the Road and The Great Escape festivals last year. 

Support on the night comes from Jerkcub and a very joyous and jumpy Francobollo to get the crowd hyped and ready in participation for The Big Moon to come on stage.

Tonight everyone in the audience seems happy with a good vibe hanging in the air. As The Big Moon take to the stage they play as well as ever, with dangerous amounts of energy on the Village Underground stage, as they jump and throw their hair about. 

Starting their set with 'Silent Movie Susie', they then dig out a rarity in the form of 'Something Beautiful', which is a more slow and melodic composed ballad sung by Jules Jackson. 

The crowd bounce, sing and dance all over the Village Underground floor, especially when fan favourites 'Formidable, 'Bonfire' and the ever so catchy tune from their EP 'The Road', 'Sucker', comes on to round the night off in superb fashion. 

There's an ecstatic feeling amongst everyone as the crowd departs the venue. The band played at their best and it was certainly a brilliant and memorable show with ever-growing energy from all four of the band. 

Take a look at some of the shots of the night and anticipate what The Big Moon could bring next.
