Moonbeams is a psychedelic pop band that is as influenced by noisy, guitar-based music with
subdued vocals as much as it is by indie pop. Armed with a reverb pedal and an overdriven vox ac15
(which was later expanded to include many, many other pedals), Moonbeams aim to create songs
that have an introspective, informal, and nostalgic feeling.
The San Diego Union-Tribune writes, "Locally crafted in the likes of Sigur Ros, Stone Roses and the
Jesus and Mary Chain, Moonbeams call their lo-fi Valium-laced pop hymnals purposefully imperfect."
Regarding the debut Moonbeams EP, the San Diego CityBeat writes, "Already think the lo-fi sound
and shoegaze revival is soooo 2009? Well, few local debuts have gotten me as excited as the recently
released Moonbeams EP. Sure, it sounds familiar, but this bedroom project juices all the best parts of
The Jesus and Mary Chain and Spacemen 3 and somehow serves it up with little homogeny."
