MOONWALKS are a psychedelic space rock outfit based between Detroit, MI & Brooklyn, NY. The band consists of Kerrigan Pearce (drums), Jacob Dean (guitar), and Kate Gutwald (bass). Originated in Detroit’s DIY scene, the band played in warehouses and makeshift venues across the city. Since then, Moonwalks have toured extensively throughout North America and Europe supporting acts like The Murlocs, Metric, Julian Casablancas & The Voidz, Thee Oh Sees, The Liminanas, and The Mystery Lights to name a few.

Their third studio LP, „Western Mystery Tradition“, was produced by Jonah Swilley (Mattiel, ATO Records) and recorded by Bill Skibbe (The Kills, Jack White) at Detroit’s Masonic Temple, the famed Key Club Recording Studios, and Detroit’s Third Man Records. The album is a departure from the band’s DIY psych rock roots to a more mature and polished sound. „Western Mystery Tradition“ will be released on Fuzz Club records in May 2023.

„Call KITTY SOLARIS the Indie Queen of Berlin, a musical shapeshifter, a voice for empowerment, or just one of the most daring musicians/producers working today. All would be the truth. Solaris is as much about the Berlin music scene as she is about social equality and fairness for women in the music industry. Quiet a full plate for anyone to take on, but this artist, promoter, and record company boss makes it look almost easy… or necessary, if you will. And that is the overall vibe and messaging throughout „Girls & Music“. Of course, all of this is interwoven in between Solaris’ trademark multiple genres traversing, bizarre and danceable quirks, and weighty, to-the-point lyricism. Pure Solaris through and through.

Highlights are hard to single out on this solid tip-to-toe Damian Press collaboration album. But if you twist my arm hard enough, I’d suggest you take the far-out opener „As the World Stops Turning“, the ethereal carnival-vibed „Mystery Girl“, and (secretly my favorite track), „Disco Blues“ for a spin… or, just be a mensch and go headlong into the full LP: Its the right thing to do… Over the past several years, I’ve made it openly clear that Kitty Solaris is one of the most exciting creators in the music world. And „Girls & Music“ fully reinforces my stance… Find out why and stream the entire LP here at the GTC.“
