Alt-pop heroines The Big Moon treat us to a stellar set of their most confident and intimate songs yet in an exclusive London show.

Tickets go on general sale from 10.00 on Tuesday 19 March.

With 2017’s Love in The 4th Dimension, nominated for The Mercury Prize, The Big Moon kicked off with an audacious debut, yet five years down the line and now on their third record, more than a few things have changed for the four-piece.

Started in the middle of lockdown, and the majority recorded when frontwoman Jules Jackson was six months pregnant, Here Is Everything has been an unexpected journey. Finished when baby Moon turned nine months old, the album captures a tumultuous period of change for the band: a time of uncertainty and new motherhood, yet bound together by the almost telepathic ties between Jules, bassist Celia Archer, drummer Fern Ford and guitarist Soph Nathan. 

Giant, fizzy tangled strings of feelings

Tracks such as Wide Eyes and 2 Lines paint a vivid picture of the writing process, when Jules was feeling her most sleep deprived. Experiencing rollercoaster highs and lows as a new mum, she still managed to instinctively conjure celestial choruses to eclipse hormonal crashes.

The luxury of time and recording in Ford’s home studio allowed the quartet to create the band’s most collaborative and illuminating album to date. Four friends pulling together to tell the story of a journey into motherhood through music was a challenging and incredibly poignant undertaking, yet The Big Moon have successfully cemented their place as one of the UK’s most genuine and affecting bands in the process.
