The Big Moon - 'Here Is Everything'

8/10

After the enormous response to their breakthrough debut album 'Love in the 4th Dimension' in 2017, which went on to earn them a Mercury Prize nomination, The Big Moon were quickly pipped as the next big thing on the UK's indie-rock scene. With a triumphant wave of praise under their wings, they managed to rekindle plenty of that initial fire for their 2020 sophomore LP 'Walking Like We Do', and maintained a firm legacy over their direction to date. Now they are returning once again with their third studio album 'Here Is Everything', a record that looks to continue that proficient rise.

Featuring a pregnant frontwoman Juliette Jackson on the cover, it is easy to understand that 'Here Is Everything' feels very much like the next phase within their sound to date. But rather than force a cliched "rebirth" analogy down our necks, their newest collection is a more subtle and progressive approach to their musical evolution as they yearn for a more driven and atmospheric intention this time around. While there is still plenty of their core sound littered throughout here, the bulk of their newest release aims for a brighter and more euphoric angle as they push the heartfelt lyricism in their work to the forefront.

Stepping away from some of their more reliable formulas can be a bit of a gamble, but 'Here Is Everything' feels far more in line with how they have been growing over the years. With such a strong and vibrant approach throughout, they have returned with a bold and accomplished offering, brimming with sweet and effortless prowess.
