The Big Moon Head To Concorde 2 Brighton Next Spring In Support Of New Album Walking Like We Do

The Big Moon have unveiled a new video for their latest single Why. The band will be heading to Brighton, in March 2021, in support of the single and new album, Walking Like We Do.

"We managed to make a video in lockdown even though we haven't been together for four months." 

In response to the worldwide Covid-19 emergency, the band have also contributed to Songs For The National Health Service, a one-off compilation album of exclusive, unreleased tracks by some of the biggest names in indie, with all proceeds funding specialist PPE for hospitals and NHS key workers via Hoods For Heroes.
 
Following their full UK support tour with Bombay Bicycle Club through January and February this year, and their own run of headline dates through late February and March, the band will be hitting the road for their biggest headline tour to date next March. 

As an album, Walking Like We Do finds The Big Moon at a thematic crossroads, swapping the more straightforward love songs of their debut album for thornier topics. 


Juliette's lyrics throughout the album find the band trying to make sense of the world we live in, riding through instability and never quite shaking the feeling that anything could happen. 

The band firmly harnessed these fears, moulding them into a positive force, losing none of the excitement and joy that first brought them together and sees them creating some of the boldest and brightest music of their career.
 
Juliette adds: 

"'Walking Like We Do' is about being strong in the face of uncertainty, about standing tall even though you're completely lost and not being afraid of the future because it just keeps on coming." 


The Big Moon is a London four-piece band formed in 2014 by Juliette Jackson.

Their debut album, Love in the 4th Dimension, contained a number of singles previously released on their EP, The Road. The album was shortlisted for the prestigious Mercury Prize in 2017.

The band have also released the first part of their new podcast, discussing the origins and creation of each album track. Listen to Track x Track 1– It's Easy Then.
