Review: 'MOON TYPES'
'"Know The Reason"'   

-  Label: 'Jigsaw records'
-  Genre: 'Indie' -  Release Date: '7th August 2015'-  Catalogue No: '#75'

Our Rating:
This is, as far as I know, the debut 7" single by Moon Types: a cool Swedish jangle pop band. Opening the A-side is the titular song: a very cool indie-pop song with some neat muted trumpet. In the lyric, the singer tells his ex that he knows the reason why he's been dumped. It's worth hearing for the trumpet playing alone.

The second song is Nothing's Holy: a very gentle song about trying to make up. It's very restrained and reminds me of The Lilac Time and The Pastels' style of fey pop.

Once you flip the single over for Do It All Over Again, you get another slice of break up indie pop as if they want to be the new Greg Kihn Band if they had been signed to Postcard Records rather than Beserkeley while ignoring all the records their parents own on Silence Records.

You can get this cool, laid back 7" from:
