Following on from the success of previous single, Evil Twin - which reached Number 1 on Spotify's Viral Chart and Hype Machine and picked up support across Radio 1 and Beats 1 - Moon is the next chapter in the evolving and ever-colourful world of Krrum.
Equal parts ethereal and infectious, Moon is a smoothly assured return from Krrum, with its early-Metronomy or Hot Chip-inspired electronics enveloping a song which fundamentally deals, they say, "with the ritual of wanting to pursue a relationship with someone, but not wanting to jump the gun and ruin it. It's an uncomfortable place to be because you have no control and you’re probably gonna mess it all up, like you always do".
Spectacularly-bearded lead producer and songwriter Alex Carrie hails from the wilderness of Derbyshire, where the buses stop at 5pm and the nearest nightclub is a £50 cab away. His first musical port of call proved to be punk, before he started playing trumpet in ska bands, though it was his strange tenure working as a tour guide in a cave followed by a job in a butchery that laid the foundations of an alternate reality, in which he might make music for living. Everything then came into focus at Leeds College of Music, where Alex met lead vocalist and songwriter for Krrum, Harrison. And for a band which seems to thrive on boom, bounce and - frequently - Alex's history with brass, Moon further refines this underlying passion for traditional songwriting; on one hand, confessional artists like Justin Vernon and Thom Yorke, and on the other, the beats of Kanye or the grooves of Justice.
