moonlit sailor is a young band from a city in Sweden called borås.
the band started out as an indie rock band in late 2006 when the
members were only 16-18 years old. the band had a new interesting
indie rock sound, often described as melodic, emotional and powerfull.
the members of moonlit sailor are the best of friends and met the first
time when they started study in elementary school. at the age of 12,
three of the members started to learn how to play and formed a band.
a couple of years later the fourth member took place and they started
to develop a new sound that eventually turned into a completely new
band, known as moonlit sailor.
in 2007 the band decided to go intrumental. in the creation of the
music the band realized that the intrumental parts were always in
focus. to go intrumental felt natural for the bands further development.
soon after the formation of moonlit sailor the band self-released their
very first demo entitled "moonlit sailor". two years later in may 2008
the band released their first instrumental CD entitled "A Footprint Of Feelings".
the new instrumental songs had a new interesting sound but still you could
hear it was moonlit sailor. the band became for many listeners worldwide
known as a post-rock band with a unique sound based on strong melodies
and dynamics mixed with emotional, captivating and powerfull soundscapes.
in relation to the release of "A Footprint Of Feelings" the band hit the road
and completed their first european tour, containing gigs in sweden, denmark,
germany, czech republic, netherlands and belgium. The tour were booked and
arranged all by themselves.
the 17th of november 2009, moonlit sailor released their second album
"So Close To Life" on one of the world's most respected independent labels;
Deep Elm Records. "So Close To Life" will also be released in Japan by
XTAL Records 3 february 2010.
