Cold Moon released their debut EP Rising this past week along with the announcement of their addition to the Pure Noise records family. Made up of members from The Story So Far and Set Your Goals, this Bay Area band leans away from their pop-punk roots towards a more free-form indie sound that allows all of the members some room to improv and noodle around on.
The recording of this EP has a real warm and raw tone to it. It was recorded live on tape which gives the sound a more un-refined and upfront approach that highlights these guys talents without the use of any added software editing.
The growth of this generation’s pop punk bands along with the emergence of the many side and solo projects that are coming from these bands are such a refreshing sight. No bullshit, just a love for playing and making music regardless of the name it may be under. This is the type of craftsmanship we need in music today and I’m happy to be witnessing it. Go listen to Rising on all streaming platforms now!
