Bio

Moonlighter are a 3 piece Rock group based in Fremantle, WA. Formed in 2016, Moonlighter hit the ground running with their self-released Lo Fi EP “Sparks”. Their early days were spent playing heavily throughout WA supporting Kallidad, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and Blue Child Collective. 



2018 saw Moonlighter play Perth International Arts Festival and headline regional festivals in the South-west. The release of Moonlighter’s latest Single “Humble Digs” alludes to a new direction: a loose and wildly expressive melting pot of Garage Rock, Blues, old school Heavy Metal and hard psych, intrinsically connected to their remote homeland of the West Australian coast.



2019 will see the release of Moonlighter’s sophomore EP as well as extensive touring. A band continuing to hone it’s sonic fingerprint and solidify it’s electric live show, Moonlighter will be a band to watch this year.

With Fever Torpedo, Moonlighter explore a more dance oriented sound whilst still staying true to their Hendrix inspired aesthetic. This song hits hard and features an extremely catchy chorus with some nicely double tracked vocals, another great tune from Moonlighter.

A great blend of old school heavy rock and new fuzzy sounds, a la Thee Oh Sees and Fuzz. Still distinctly Moonlighter though, with Sascha's tight lead vocals bringing something new to the table. What more can you ask for than a good riff?
