Bio

Byron Bay alt-rock four piece Moreton is gearing up for the release of their new hit, “Circles”, on Friday, April 5th. This accompanies the announcement of live shows across Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in May supporting Finn Andrews (The Veils) and an EP, The Dog Years, following in June. Showcasing their smoky guitar riffs and lead singer Georgia’s captivating vocals, “Circles” is a solemn yet addictive track overflowing with serene sonics.
Intrepid, gritty and dynamic, “Circles” is drenched with earnest lyricism matched by an undeniably stirring voice, pitted against reverb drenched and hook laden guitar melodies and the minimalist triumph of the band’s rhythm section. Their sound - although unmistakably authentic with their own blend of guitar riffs, sincere lyricism and a soulful energy draws inspirations from Jeff Buckley, Daughter, PJ Harvey and The Drones.

"Masterfully melts hope and despair into single sentences, punching through the feet-dragged composition with lingering one-liners." – Rolling Stone Australia

“An utterly sublime, evocative, yet wholly tranquil experience; more a meandering, delayed sense of gratification than direct and instant relief — and all the more a pleasure to listen to for it.” – The Music

It's like one big, honest and raw open book into your mind. And everyone is welcome. I admire this a lot.

It's apt that my head feels like it's been going in figure eights while listening to this. It's got an intoxicating effect to it and I can definitely hear those nods to PJ Harvey and Grace-era Jeff Buckley.

crafted with the hands of a total pro. the swelling, brooding might at the end is brilliant.
