Full moon fiasco

Your basket would have to be pretty full of cucumbers to be as cool as Full Moon Fiasco. We first caught this act when they supported Cosmonauts on their recent European tour. Laid back, outrageously hip and throwing out retro-inspired psych numbers like it's nothing, Full Moon Fiasco talk to us about what's on their stereo and, surprisingly, some geography. 


BangOn Team: Tell us a little about your band. What’s your sound?

Full Moon Fiasco: Full Moon Fiasco was made in New Zealand and has since moved to Berlin. The music is inspired by the sound of wind in the trees mostly, although that will probably change.

BOT: How do you go about  songwriting?

FMF: Songs are generally written as a free form piece and then cut up and re pasted into a shorter more concise form.

BOT: Who are your biggest influences?

FMF: They tend to change over time, the small ones get bigger and the big ones get smaller. At the moment disco and soundtracks are coming up a lot on the FMF stereo.

BOT: What’s been your lowest and highest point as a band?

FMF: I think the lowest point was the North Sea and the highest point was the Southern Alps.

BOT: What’s your ultimate aim?

FMF: To only make music when it makes sense to make music that makes no sense.

BOT: What does Berlin do for you musically?

FMF: I think people in Berlin have discerning ears. So variety is the spice of life. That's inspiring.

BOT: What do we have to look forward to in the coming months from you?

FMF: We are releasing the album, Summer Eyes on September 7th and a video for the song 'Sight Unseen My Pixie Queen' at the end of this month.

BOT: Donald Trump has invited you to play a private party for him. He’ll pay you $1,000,000. Nobody ever has to know. Do you play?

FMF: Oh, haha, Not sure what the vibe would be, would be kind of amazing to see that, I´m sure we would get fired.
