HANGING UP THE MOON
Self-released in 2011, Hanging Up The Moon’s debut album was a far cry from the rock roots of Concave Scream, one of Singapore’s pioneer indie bands. In the folk-acoustic tradition of singer-songwriters, the songs were simply accompanied by the guitar or ukulele, allowing Sean’s plaintive vocals and introspective lyrics to shine through. The recordings were also deliberately left lo-fi and rough around the edges, reflecting the homemade nature of the project. It is precisely this quiet honesty in both words and sound that has captivated critics and listeners alike.
With their 3rd album “Immaterial”, Hanging Up The Moon moves even further away from its singer-songwriter roots and continues to evolve both in sound and set-up, with Alexius Cai (Piblokto) joining the line-up. This new album is our most lush and ambitious project to date. Layers upon layers of vocals meet their match in violins and cellos at times epic and soaring, at times subtle and grounded — all set against Hanging Up The Moon’s signature melodies, riffs and rhythm.
