"Album Review: Moonwater EP"

"Up and coming Asbury Park-based indie/alt-pop group Moonwater have managed to successfully build upon their momentum with a bright, passionate, exhilarating trio of songs that showcase their organic and intimate songwriting and formidable musicianship."

"Drawing inspiration from acts such as Kings of Leon, Death Cab For Cutie, and The 1975, Moonwater are thankfully able to utilize these influences to create something distinctly modern and fresh. Their performances maintain a notable level of intensity and exuberance that effectively draws the listener in. What allows Moonwater to stand out early on is the scope of emotions and sounds they convey throughout all three tracks."

"The sophistication and unity of Moonwater’s arrangements allow their songs to feel both epic and intimate at once, creating an immersive experience."

"Most importantly, Moonwater seem to have a genuine thrill for music, and that infectious spirit shines through helping to further illustrate the band’s sincere and honest approach. Despite only being a three-song EP, Moonwater seem to have a strong handle on their style, subject matter, and presentation and display many flashes of potential to come." - Stars and Scars

"Moonwater- Moonwater"

"The songs felt very coming of age to me. It felt like music made by young people for young people - from the lyrics to the emotional resonance."

"'Ghosts' mixed elements of pop, alternative and rock. There are some solid grooves along with atmospheric breakdowns and a hook worthy chorus"

"'In My Mind'.. is arguably the highlight. I thought the chorus in particular was anthemic and memorable. There is also a cool breakdown section that I thought was inventive"

"The young band is off to a good start... after only three songs I felt I had a good concept of what “their sound” was." - Divide & Conquer
