MOONWOOD Releases Debut EP “Everything We Once Knew”: Streaming
- Sydney-based alt-rock band MOONWOOD released their debut EP “Everything We Once Knew” on April 29, 2022.
The band was formed by five friends from Australia, the United States and Canada, consisting of Jacob McCullough (vocals), Justin Spaccavento (drums), Aaron Spaccavento (keyboards), William Coleman (bass) and Paul Brouwer (guitar).
The 6-track EP was primarily written over a period of 10 days in 2020 during a writing retreat. Written by MOONWOOD and produced by Grant Konemann.
Jacob McCullough said, “The ten days we spent there would change our lives in ways we could not have imagined. Our little studio was set up at a solar-powered house in the middle of the bush, four hours west of Sydney. We set up our instruments, pressed record, and the rest was history. We couldn't believe what we accomplished.”
- MOONWOOD explained of some tracks for the EP.
“Big Red Sun”
“Big Red Sun is a song about a relationship that from the outset is clearly dysfunctional, but when you're in it, you're captivated by looking through rose-coloured glasses.”
“Slow Down narrates a struggling relationship, the tension surrounding conflict and striving for repair. Touching on the differences of two individuals, the song speaks of love, patience and tolerance, sonically building throughout and reflecting the tension in the relationship. The relatable track navigates the need to resolve and repair the miscommunication between two lovers, which is a result of their unspoken issues and individual contrasts.”
“As a result of the pandemic, a lot of us have been sitting still, not being able to travel or leave the state. We have had no choice but to stay in our homes to think and reflect. It was in that place that this song was born. I remember growing a deeper appreciation of Sydney. Not being able to travel allowed me to fall in love with this city all over again.”
“Us Against the World”
“This sentiment has been particularly relevant given the past couple of years have been extremely difficult, but the one thing that has grounded me, is staying close to the people I cherish. Being surrounded by the ones that you love is what really matters.”
