EDINBURGH duo Man of Moon unveiled their debut album ‘Dark Sea’ last year – an album we described as “a moody and foreboding soundscape that washes over and completely submerges you”. A long time in the making, the band more than lived up to years of promise – so much so that they topped our Top Records of the Year list of 2020.

Just over a year on from its release, Man of Moon have made an eagerly anticipated return with the release of ‘Run and Hide’ – and we’re pleased to report it’s another triumph. Retaining the dark, ominous feel of that debut album, they take their sound down new invigorating avenues – a propulsive, kinetic beat sits aloft moody guitars and brooding vocals as they add another dynamic to their powerful, atmospheric sound. An intoxicating mix of electronic and post-punk influences, it marks yet another evolution for Man of Moon as they enter a new chapter.

Man of Moon embark on a UK tour next week which will kick off in Aberdeen and take them to Dundee, London, Manchester and Birmingham among others, before culminating with a huge show at Glasgow’s Oran Mor on 26th November. Get tickets here.
