There’s something very endearing about The Big Moon’s debut LP. In parts. the London four-piece’s brand of rock and roll manages to revive the comatose corpse of London’s golden age of indie music. In other parts, it evokes a Pixies-like knack of refining the reserved and the resounding. In addition to that, the timing of Juliette Jackson’s lyrical delivery is not too dissimilar to the way Alex Turner knows his way around a pen and paper. Listen to the lyric in Pull The Other One – “And will you stay the night? I’d like to let you stay the day but my schedule’s very tight,” and you’ll see what I mean. Despite these influences bleeding from the romantic ramshackle of The Big Moon’s songs, their sound is absolutely their own. Their versatility and ability to channel some of the genuine peaks of the paradigm into their sound is a huge strength, and while it doesn’t break the mould or reinvent the wheel, Love in the 4th Dimension is a very impressive debut.
