Through these strange and uncertain times it is sometimes a little hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel but this is where The Moons have stepped in. This long player is an album full of colour and raw song writing recorded live in the legendary Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. With cinematic string arrangements and masterclass song writing from the pen of singer/songwriter Andy Crofts this album will be your happy escape.

“Most of this album had been unintentionally sat in my pocket for quite some time. Songs that I had written and forgotten about or had just lost their way and left unfinished. So that is why I wanted the album to simply be named Pocket Melodies. I had this inner feeling to pull them all together and it turned out my favourite Moons record.” Andy Crofts

Pocket Melodies takes you on a journey of glorious melodies leading you through love, romance, nostalgia, regret and unity.

Congratulations to the Paul Weller band members of The Moons on the release of their new album, ‘Pocket Melodies’ out today. Featuring a Weller/ Crofts composition called ‘Tunnel of Time’ recorded at Abbey Rd.

“I wanted to be true to myself with this record. My best strength is writing melodic pop songs so I just let it all flow as I wanted this album to be soaked in colour and completely natural. There’s no pretence, it’s just straight up pop songs. I have always worn my heart on my sleeve when it comes to my feelings and I think you can hear this in the lyrics this time.” Andy Crofts

The album features singles Riding Man and Today which received high praise and championed on BBC London and Radio X and a collaboration with Paul Weller on the song Tunnel Of Time.

“I wrote all of the songs on the album except Tunnel Of Time which is a collaboration between myself and Paul Weller. He once approached me with a little idea and we slowly worked at it in dressing rooms etc until I took it away and put it all together. Its a nice little song and i’m glad it found a home with The Moons.” Andy Crofts
