Philadelphia psychedelic band, Moon Jellies, share their plans for upcoming Summer tour and a single off their new EP expected for July!
Founded by co-frontmen Eoin Murphy and Kevin Moran, the Moon Jellies established their spacey, hypnotic sound through elements of psychedelic, indie, and funk music. Upon moving to Philadelphia, the two acquired drummer, Derek Sattazahn, and bassist, Kevin Segal, to complete their lineup. In addition to several singles, The Moon Jellies’ released their first record, MOON PHASE 1, in August of 2015. Since then, the band has been compared to dream pop groups like Tame Impala, all the way to “The Beach Boys on Acid”.
The guys are currently in the process of creating their new EP and expect to release it by July of 2016. Check out their single “Time Frame,” appearing on the upcoming EP. Murphy says “I got the idea (for “Time Frame”) while messing around over winter break from school. The riff just sort of came to me and after I brought it in we just kept collaborating on it.”
If you’re a fan and want to catch the Moon Jellies jam this summer, you’re in luck. They’ve made plans to tour around the U.S in states/cities including Philadelphia, Washington D.C., West Virginia, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Baltimore. They expect to announce specific venue locations and dates of their shows very, very soon!
