After the success of their debut album Big Enough and the tour that followed, Mooneye went into the studio at the end of 2022 for the follow-up. For this, singer-guitarist Michiel Libberecht wanted to return to the essence of the band: intimacy from an acoustic base. He was inspired by the American way of songwriting, with elements of folk and country, and influences such as Kevin Morby, acoustic Beck and the soundtracks of Morricone and Luppi. The result is a stunning album, varied yet coherent. Libberecht becomes more personal and reveals himself to be a storyteller in his own right in every song. “It’s very close to who I am,” he says. With a broad musical palette of what Mooneye is and can be in the future. You’ll know exactly what it sounds like when the new album comes out in February.
But you can experience the real Mooneye live, at one of the concerts on the album launch tour, which will take in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. With new songs, hits like Bright Lights, Fix The Heater and Thinking About Leaving, well-known tracks from the album and a band that, after years, is in perfect harmony, a top-notch musical evening is guaranteed. For those who want to witness it for themselves, don’t wait too long to get your ticket….
