Moon Tapes Release First Single on Mink: ‘Tonight I’ll Write The Saddest Lines’

The first single by our new signing Moon Tapes, entitled ‘Tonight I’ll Write The Saddest Lines’, is now available on all major streaming services.

‘Tonight I’ll Write The Saddest Lines’ is the first single from Amsterdam-based Moon Tapes’ upcoming debut album ‘Speculation’. The album is due for release mid January 2019, and will be available on limited edition 12” vinyl.
Drawing inspiration from artists like Serge Gainsbourg, Francoise Hardy but also The Stone Roses and Last Shadow Puppets for this record, Moon Tapes have maintained their dream/sunshine pop identity but have grown musically by experimenting with strings and production techniques.
The group has performed at festivals, venues and TV shows like Sziget, London Calling, Melkweg, and ‘De Wereld Draait Door’ (The Netherlands’ most viewed talkshow). Partnering with Radar Agency for upcoming live shows, a tour is in the making, coinciding with the release of a string of singles leading up to the album release.

‘Where’s The Having Fun?’ by The Mighty Breaks Out Now

Third single leading up to The Mighty Breaks’ debut album out today! ‘Where’s the Having Fun?’ is the third of a string of singles the band will put out in advance of the release of their debut album, expected early 2019.

Known for their high energy live shows, The Mighty Breaks’ weapons of choice are fuzzy guitars and the, for a garage band, unusual addition of saxophone. All five band members sing, giving each track a different feel. The Mighty Breaks’ garage pop/90’s alternative sound is inspired by artists like Guided By Voices, The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Dandy Warhols.

The Mighty Breaks released their self-titled debut EP on Mink Records last year and subsequently toured the Netherlands and Italy. Singles ‘Faking Chasing’ and ‘Quitting for a Smoke’ provided a first taste of the new material, released digitally and accompanied by videos premiered at Noisey. ‘Faking Chasing’ was featured in Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds: Six Strings’, ‘New Alternative’ and ‘Independent Music Monday’. The band was tipped by blogs like UK’s Drowned in Sound, Japan’s Niche Music and Berlin-based Smoke and Echoes. Late 2018 will see two double bill NL tours, with Canshaker Pi and The Hazzah.
