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.
"'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.
The Big Moon play Concorde 2 Brighton on Monday 26th October 2020. For details and tickets CLICK HERE.
