The composition and diversity of this young Oklahoma City band's music is undeniably gripping. Harmonious and dreamy folk-inspired vocals, soaring Grizzly Bear-esque electric guitar, and a room-filling, signature acoustic 12-string guitar, all sewn together with intricate percussive grooves and bass lines, create a wild, yet interconnected sound.

Biography

The composition and diversity of this young Oklahoma City band's music is undeniably gripping. Harmonious and dreamy folk-inspired vocals, soaring Grizzly Bear-esque electric guitar, and a room-filling, signature acoustic 12-string guitar, all sewn together with intricate percussive grooves and bass lines, create a wild, yet interconnected sound.

"The band plays an enchanting style of indie pop, grand in its proportions. Lead guitar rips reverberating chasms into 12-string brilliance from lead singer Erich Massad who coos in a style that delineates away from the folk-inflected appropriations the band may receive from more surface listens. This is big time indie rock a la Grizzly Bear, especially influenced in the rhythm section where clicks and smatterings of swampy toms and rims rise to punctuate the wash. On record these guys sound crisp, clear, and professional." - Lukas Truckenbrod, Pop Press Intl.


Moongiant independently released its first EP, "Territories," in November of 2014. The band then released "Cloud Chief" in April, 2015. "Bower," the band's latest unreleased single is slated for release in early 2016. The band will soon be announcing a tour early next year, and with a host of new music in store. 2016 is shaping up to be an meaningful, decisive year for Moongiant.

Lyrics

Cloud Chief

Written By: Erich Massad

Once in romance, now an elder,
Keep on trying to remember
Breathing smoke in swift December
Is where you found me in the river

Taking long strides past the tree line,
Carry me now to the old pine
Now we’re able, drinking our wine,
Just as entered, become untwined

La da da da

They go, we go, feeling empty
Cast my anger for the upkeep
Time will go by, just as last week
Forever on high as a cloud chief

La da da da
As a cloud chief
