Amoeba Review

Karen, Hollywood 09/01/2013

Harmonies galore. Reminiscent of Fleet Foxes or Band of Horses, but with a sparse-emo vibe. Slippery and provocative.


07/22/2013

Though Canadian band Half Moon Run have gained fans through touring behind acoustic-rock behemoths like Mumford & Sons and Of Monsters & Men, the band is a less bombastic, more sensitive beast than those bands. Album opener “Full Circle” shuffles along with a tribal drumbeat and morose harmonies from all four members of the band. The band’s beats keep things moving and don’t let them wallow too far in minor-key melodies, while singer Devon Portielje emotes like a young Ian McCulloch on “Call Me in the Afternoon.” Clearly inspired by the likes of Radiohead and early Coldplay, the band is able to marry its largely acoustic-based with atmospheric touches like swooning electric guitar lines on the intense “No More Losing the War.” It may not be totally fair to judge these guys by their contemporaries, but even so, they’re ahead of the rest with the heartfelt Dark Eyes.
