Come with Me and Hide
23 Feb 2024
With an excellent and acclaimed debut album, a string of successful singles and a steaming live reputation, Mooneye have been in the forefront of Belgium’s indie scene for quite some years now.
A status that will only continue to grow with sophomore album ‘Come With Me And Hide’. It all started for Mooneye in 2019 with victory in a music talent show for national alternative radio station Studio Brussel. They released an ep soon after and scored a first modest hit with Thinking About Leaving. Their debut album Big Enough followed in 2021, containing hit singles like Bright Lights (ft. Meskerem Mees), Fix The Heater and Are You Lonely Too. They toured through Belgium and the Netherlands and as far as Germany, where their fame is growing considerably since they played a very well received gig at the famous Reeperbahn festival.
By the end of 2022 the band went into the studio for the long-awaited second album, and frontman Michiel Libberecht wanted to return to the band’s very essence: intimacy built up from an acoustic foundation. He drew inspiration from his love for the American way of songwriting, incorporating elements of folk and country, and influences ranging from Kevin Morby and acoustic Beck to Morricone and Luppi soundtracks. The result is a stunning, coherent and heartfelt album with Mooneye sounding more full-grown than ever.
First single ‘Lover To Stranger’ did very well on radio, streaming services and in alternative charts. After a solo tour supporting Ruben Block (Triggerfinger) in Germany, Libberecht will be looking towards 2024, the release of ‘Come With Me And Hide’ and a new tour taking the band to wonderful venues in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. And that, after all, is what Mooneye is all about, being on stage and sharing their music with fans and audiences all around.Read more
