Pale Moon is a project of two, Árni Gudjonsson and Natalia Sushchenko. Influenced by Billy Joel, David Bowie and Beach Boys, the result of their musical collaboration lay in indie stratosphere.
It might remind you of The Shins, Fleetwood Mac or Tennis, but still their unique charm creates a special sound. Educated as a classical pianist Árni's life took a radical turn when he joined "Of Monsters And Men", one of few Icelandic bands who achieved overwhelming international success. Nevertheless he wanted to write his own material. Nata on the other hand has been pursuing career in design. She was born in a small Siberian town and though wrote a lot of poetry and participated in small musical project didn't perceive it seriously until she met with Árni.
They already released an EP and few singles, including Stranger and Parachutes both charting on Icelandic radio. The media also took a notice. Their releases earned mentions on indie blogs, online magazines and spotify playlist We Love That Sound , York Calling , Indie for Bunnies, Visual Atelier 8 , Buffa Blog, Gig Radar, Cheers to the vikings, Wolf in a suit, Analogue Trash, WHEN THE HORN BLOWS, Come here Floyd, Hot Lunch Music, Airpate, oh.es.tee, Nordic Simit, Booooom TV and many others.
You could have seen Pale Moon on Mercat de Music Viva de Vic Festival this September or as an upcoming act in Iceland Airwaves and ESNS in Netherlands.
Band already recorded an LP which is expected to be released later this year.
"The vocals bring a real sunny-day, romantic quality to Parachutes. It does have the melodic tones you associate with the 70s heyday of Wings and Fleetwood Mac, layered and organic, pop with a profoundly personal lyrical side to it. That’s infused with an effervescent indie quality – reminiscent of The Cardigans and Lush, bringing an edge to the breezy arrangement and melody."
