Released: 02.04.21








Millennial garage psych, with a plentiful helping of math rock fused with some angelic alto vocals from bassist and singer-songwriter Margaret McCarthy, who is joined by her fellow Oberlin Conservatory graduate friends Ben Cruz and Emerson Hunton on guitar and drums.

Moontype have constructed a thoughtful and fairly unique sounding debut album, which has made quite a stir over the pond, garnering comparisons to Galaxie 500 among others and a mention in the most anticipated releases for 2021 by MTV and Bandcamp. The tracks About You and When Will I Learn have some great tuneful hooks and 3 Weeks has a sweet folksiness and are distinct high points that clearly display a fresh talent to look out for in the future.
