Smaller, regional venues and studios are the lifeblood of the music industry, and it's never been more important to support live music - in all its forms - and local promoters. Nottingham has a particularly vibrant scene, and Drowned In Sound is extremely proud to partner with Gigantic Tickets and Alchemistic Records for The Moonshine Sessions, a series of candid interviews and performances with artists currently on tour and passing through the city.
Gigantic are an independent ticket agency working with a huge range of artists, promoters, and venues selling tickets up and down the country. Partnering with Alchemistic, who themselves are a collective of musicians, producers, videographers, and photographers, has bought them closer together through a shared love of live music. The sessions are filmed at Nottingham’s state of the art Rofl studios.
For the fourth Moonshine Session we had Australian trio Middle Kids in the studio giving us some of their radiant, anthemic indie rock. Alongside 'Salt Eyes', taken from last year's debut album Lost Friends, they played a slow, pared-down cover of the Cyndi Lauper classic 'Time After Time'. The band also sat down for a wide-ranging chat with our very own Dom Gourlay, which you can view alongside their performances below. Enjoy.
