MOONWALKS

DARK/SPACE/PSYCH

Moonwalks are a weird dark space psych outfit based out of Detroit, MI. The band consists of Kerrigan Pearce (drums), Jacob Dean (guitar), and Kate Gutwald (bass). Their first EP, recorded by the legendary Jim Diamond (White Stripes/The Dirtbombs), was released in November of 2014 on L.A. based label L.O.O.S.E+Manimal Vinyl, and was dubbed a 'New and Notable Release' by Bandcamp. 

Originated in Detroit's DIY scene, the band played in warehouses and makeshift venues across the city. Since then, Moonwalks have toured extensively throughout the US and Europe, as well as open for notable acts such as Thee Oh Sees, Metric, Kikagako Moyo, Wand, and LA Witch. Their debut LP, also recorded by Diamond, was released November 6, 2015 on Manimal Vinyl. 

Moonwalks released their first 7'' single, 'A Little Touch of Gravity//Steam Train'' on Brooklyn based Greenway Records in January 2017.

PRESS

When you attend a Moonwalks show, you can expect a unique level of panache and theatricality, along with a healthy number of reverb-drenched jams. You’ll find more of this on Lunar Phases, which blends bits of pop and psychedelia to craft compelling songs that will delight and intrigue.

The band go to a darker place, where their sticks, strings, and pedals do the talking. Sometimes the guitar tones and drumming create moody environments reminiscent of post-punk or darkwave acts.
— DETROIT MUSIC MAG
(...) they are our favorite local dreampop band, combining as they do sugary-sweet melodies with an unexpectedly intense delivery. Their music doesn’t have you reaching in your phone to find the other bands they remind you of; this is very difficult to pull off with this kind of stuff. These seas are well-charted, so it’s such a joy to find new .
