Daylight with Moon Tapes - An Interview

Ao ouvir o EP homônimo dos holandeses do Moon Tapes a impressão que temos é que existe sim como fugir do estigma maldoso que foi criado para o termo indie rock atualmente.

Os caras pegaram Stone Roses e Adorable e fundiram ambos, fazendo um pegajoso e delicioso indie rock ao melhor estilo 90´s e o mais bacana, não soa datado de forma alguma, pelo contrário, o frescor esta mais vivo do que nunca.

Dê play imediatamente e instantaneamente foi vai aumentar.

Serene and still we’ll wait a while.
