"Gig Review"

This isn't my favourite Heavenly song, but it's wildly appropriate today because I, too, fell in love last night! With a Dublin band I'd never seen or heard before. They're called the Tender Trap - a name, ironically, also used by Heavenly goddess Amelia Fletcher in recent years - and they put on such a great performance they could have easily had an encore although they weren't even headlining. Musically they reminded me a lot of Orange Juice, though with not quite such distinctive vocals; their drummer is the lead singer, which is usually a bad idea but seemed to work in this case. They played about half their set as a three-piece and for the other half they added a female guitarist-keyboardist (female guitarists are always a plus in my book) who brought a particularly intriguing dimension to their sound. I really, really enjoyed them - as the rest of the crowd clearly also did - and can't wait to see them again.

"MP3 review"

"the overall feeling is one of relief. Relief because we may have at long last landed an indie pop band that can rival those that effortlessly spill out of Glasgow."

"Any Other City Compilation review"

"they come up trumps with their contribution a feverish little ditty called three more inches. Awkwardly endearing vocals and simple guitar riffs make for some subdued but seriously cool punk pop" - Hot Press Magazine

"The Ticket"

"What the world needs now is a new Postcard scene taking root in deepest Clondalkin. Dive in to savour the sweetest of nods and winks from the Dubliners to Orange Juice and Belle & Sebastian on tunes like Vanity."

Hello Moon are 3 boys and a girl from Dublin who write sweet sparkling psychedelic indie pop music. With influences such as Orange Juice, Teenage Fanclub, Caribou, Phil Spector, and the Beach Boys to name a few. They have spent the past year honing their sound and recording their debut album in makeshift studios in sheds and bedrooms across Dublin. With only the tiniest of final touches left to add, they are excitedly preparing for the album release in May 2011 on Any Other City Records.

They have been lucky enough to play support to bands such as Teenage Fanclub and Lower Dens. In January 2010 they contributed their song Three More Inches to the Any Other City EP, which received favourable reviews from the Irish music press.
