The Belgians traveled recently to China for their two-week tour. They also went to the Amsterdam based Electric Monkey studio for the recording of their debutalbum ‘Start a Fire’, which will be released at March 8th. “This album is a protestsong. Whatever brews in society rages within us. We want to evoke a dialogue through fire and thrill. Back to what is animalistic and pure. A cry to whatever is right and lasting” says the band about ‘Start a Fire’.

Magic Moon sounds like a moshpit in a thriftshop; unexpected, sometimes referring to older times and filled with suprising gems psychedelic rock is served with a combination of banging drums, poly-phonic vocals, fuzzy guitars and a pounding organ.
