ABOUT

Killing Moon Records was set up as an independent record label in 2008 after a bunch of guys a guy basically got fed up of taking shit from the labels that they he worked for. We’re extremely proud to have worked with some amazing bands in the past, and very much looking forward to some exciting releases in the very near future.

DEMOS

If you’d like us to listen to your music, best way to get it to us is by either sending us an [EMAIL], or by making a deposit in our [SoundCloud Dropbox].

We always listen to everything that we’re sent. If we feel we might be able to do something with your music, we’ll give you a shout back as soon as possible. Please don’t bombard us with pestery emails though (unless you’re telling us how brilliant we are, sending us a bribe, or otherwise serving to inflate our already oversized egos).

“Interest has been picking up fast, thanks to the immediacy and addictiveness of their dark pop sound and a familiarity with the makings of a great chorus”CMU Approved

The Blueskies

Souvenir

CD (limited to 500 copies)/Digital EP

KMRCD002

Released: 10th May 2010

(Physical copies sold out)

“Primal Depeche meets The Killers in a dark alley with stories of loves lost and many strange friends” – Q Magazine

“As the record wraps up with the poignant ‘Thanks For Asking Why’ and the absolutely storming synth party stomp of ‘Royal Blood’, it’s clear that this mini-album means the start of something special for the band” – Shaken Stir

“This six-track EP from Brighton’s The Blueskies demonstrates their ability to convert honest emotion into cathartic, catchy songs. An electronic flair underpins the introspection of their lyrics while simultaneously propelling their upbeat emoldies with confident urgency” – Music Week

“With tracks that work equally as well on the radio as on the dancefloor, this is a group that look set to make more than a few people smile” – Get To The Front

“Six tracks of undeniable pure electro-pop perfection” – Music News

The Muscle Club

CD (limited to 500 copies)/Digital EP

KMRCD001

Released: 19th October 2009

(Physical copies sold out)

“By the time the understated bonus track kicks in, The Muscle Club will have stolen your heart. Frenetic, familiar and bloody good fun,Fragmented Ideas From Young Lungs could well be a late contender for debut of the year” – Bearded Magazine

“If Pete Doherty still made music that mattered – stuff like the Libertines debut – it might sound something like this debut mini-album. Intelligent, visceral, and far from fragmented” – The Fly

“There’s still a tender edge and exuberance to the band, which is perhaps unsurprising given that they formed a little under two years ago but, nonetheless, Fragmented Ideas From Young Lungs is a persuasive calling from a band with an exciting and tantalising future ahead” – The Playground Magazine

A charmingly ramshackle noise from a Cardiff quartet who are cleverly straddling the line between knock-about pop and fuzzed-up jerk-rock. Scratch the surface of yelps and broken guitars and there’s a real songwriting nous” – Music Week

“The Muscle Club have gone about defining what makes a great 20th Century indie record” – Tourdates.co.uk

“There is something about The Muscle Club’s debut release that is just so … good. The individual parts of the record are very good, occasionally bordering on exceptional. The drumming is a joy to listen to, reminiscent at times of Matthew Tong from Bloc Party. The guitars are technically excellent and the lyrics, sometimes insightful, are evoked through wistful vocals” – Music News

“Really, like, properly good, macabre little indie bands are rarer than rocking-horse do-do these days. Thankfully Little Death have dropkicked themselves into our headlights. A deathly delight”The Fly

“This is genuinely exciting stuff. It’s just a pity Little Death are probably way too cool to hang out with us” – NME

“Mixing garage infused art-rock with a splash pf psychedelia, this trio of international heritage are making a big noise…This may be a modest release, but one that should be the start of great things” – Rocksound

“There’s nothing little about this band. We’re dying to see them live” – Drowned In Sound

Little Death are the best gnarly-but-tuneful band we’ve heard…Mint as fuck” – Front Magazine
