Wonky pop band MOONOVERSUN make neon-bedazzled sounds that are pricking ears and moving hips.

The Brighton-based twosome fuse fidgety electronica, off-kilter beats and dual boy/girl vocals to create an eclectic strain of pop, and their output to date feels vaguely reminiscent of Crystal Castles at their mid-noughties peak (albeit with an accessible spin and renewed 2018 sheen).

With the band set to play Hidden Herd Presents: Strong Asian Mothers at The Hope & Ruin in Brighton on Wednesday 28th February, we caught up with Isaac and Sofia to talk all things MOONOVERSUN.

Your early single ‘Flux’ is an infectious gem. How did the track come about?

“‘Flux’ was one of the first things we did together, it was during the early stages of MOONOVERSUN as we were first beginning to develop our sound – we’re very much looking forward to showing how far we’ve developed since with new music coming soon.”

How did MOONOVERSUN start out?

“It properly started a year or so ago, we’d known each other for a while and already knew each other’s creative process and we had a very similar vision of what we wanted to create so it only made sense to start working together.”

What inspired your name?

“Nothing really inspired it to be honest, but I guess the moon and the sun, like us, are also an iconic duo.”

Who are the Top 5 biggest influences on your sound right now?

“Charli XCX, Rhianna, Tommy Genesis, Micachu and AG Cook.”

Any other new artists you have played with and would recommend?

“We recently started a residency in London putting on audio/visual nights under the alias ‘WONK’ and by being able to curate these nights we have found some great musicians. Here are a few that have played: Jennifer Walton, Vibes, Cosydrive, Wharfwit and Zoee.”

And finally, what does the future hold for MOONOVERSUN?

“New music and club nights – coming very soon!”
