The Big Moon + Ruth Mac (support)
Th Big Moon
The Big Moon are an English indie rock band, formed in 2014 in London by frontwoman Juliette Jackson. Their debut album, Love in the 4th Dimension, was released on 6 April 2017, containing a number of tracks previously released on their EP The Road. The album was shortlisted for the prestigious Mercury Prize in 2017.
Ruth Mac is a slacker rock artist from Galway, Ireland now based in Berlin. Her debut EP Living Room was released in 2021 on Beth Shalom Records.
With a sound described as “idiosyncratic soul-infused indie”, Mac’s music ties an engaging simplicity with thoughtful, off-kilter lyricism. Drawing influence in equal measure from folk singers of the seventies and contemporary rock, Mac’s distinctly raw vocals bring an intimacy to her effervescent indie tunes.
Mac’s music has been praised by the likes of Nialler9, Paste, HotPress, Essentially Pop, The Last Mixed Tape, Dublin City FM, 8Radio, and IndiePop Takeout. Following the release of her debut EP, Mac spent 2022 bringing her live show to Ireland, UK, and Germany, including support slots for English synth-pop legends Hot Chip and Irish folk duo Ye Vagabonds.
With the remainder of 2023 bringing new music and live dates across Ireland, Germany, and the Netherlands, Ruth Mac’s journey is one to watch.
