London-based Alt-Rock five-piece Moonshine Heavies return with a burst of energy in their latest single, ‘Two Fingers’.
A vibrant and breezy offering packing the band’s infectious indie exploits and classic rock undertones, ‘Two Fingers’ showcases the 5-piece’s strikingly complete sound despite their relative infancy as a band.
Recorded and produced at the prestigious Lightship 95 Studios by Giles Barrett and Dave Holmes, known for their work with artists like Bess Attwell, Alfa Mist, Ezra Collective, and Ghostpoet, ‘Two Fingers’ wastes no time in delivering a high-octane yet meticulously crafted sonic experience – from the bopping bass runs, intricate and soaring guitar work, tight drums and enticing live aesthetic all coming together to provide a solid foundation for the husky, effortlessly catchy, and charismatic lead vocals.
The song’s atmosphere gradually builds throughout, eventually breaking into guitar solos, proudly reinforcing the band’s 70s rock influences before concluding with a climactic, crescendo in the final chorus, leaving listeners thoroughly captivated by the tracks close.
Moonshine Heavies shares the inspiration behind the song, revealing that beneath the initial hazy summer vibes, ‘Two Fingers’ revolves around the concept of expressing frustration and defiance after a breakup. The lyrics paint a picture of thinking you know someone, only to realize that they are, in fact, a stranger. The band encourages listeners to let go of the negativity and instead choose to boogie and raise two fingers as a symbol of empowerment and moving forward.
Having already headlined prominent shows across London, including the O2 Academy Islington and Camden Assembly, Moonshine Heavies have earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the capital’s most thrilling new live rock bands. With upcoming performances at Camden Rocks and 93 Feet East, Moonshine Heavies are undoubtedly one to watch as they continue to propel themselves ever forwards.
