Review: The Big Moon – ‘Cupid’


With 90s rock inflections and a laid-back vibe, The Big Moon's latest track signals their signing to Fiction Records.

The Big Moon are a fresh-faced female-four piece rock outfit, oozing cool inflections of 90s laid-back rock with a modern spin. The Londoners’ new track ‘Cupid’ coincides with them being signed to Fiction Records. The ease and grace of the band emanates when they’re on stage. I first stumbled upon them at Southampton’s Independence Festival at Lennon’s, and the companionship between the four-piece transcends into their recorded music too. Lead vocalist Juliette Jackson says, “It was definitely more important to have the right people in the band than the right musicians.”

‘Cupid’ softly comes into being, with the repetition of “I’m going to get this perfectly right” crooned by Juliette Jackson over gentle guitar picking. The track crashes into life with the angst and power that comes behind The Big Moon’s music, as growing drums come into play. The Big Moon bring a raw energy that spills effortlessly from their music, with the track building to its height with melodic “oohs” and the repeated refrain that opened the track.

It’s slick; it’s simple; it has body to it. The Big Moon have already established a polished sound, one that is further cemented by ‘Cupid’.

‘Cupid’ is out now via Fiction.
