Radar went to check out The Big Moon light up The Lemon Tree last night with their animated onstage persona.

The London four-piece arrived onto the stage to Robbie Williams ‘Millennium’ blaring through the speakers; it was comical but enough to make up for their unapologetic lack of punctuality. 

Frontwoman Juliette Jackson’s (decked out in a fantastic tiger print shirt) beckoned the crowd to get off their seats and come forward and just like they were off their seats. This lead straight into the opener ‘Silent Movie Susie’ which set the pace for the rest of the night as a band who are all about the crowd. From the word go you wish you could be friends with these effortlessly cool girls.

After finishing off their second track they spotted someone in the crowd wearing a Louis Theroux t-shirt; saying that they “hope the kind of people that would buy a Louis Theroux bae t-shirt would be at their gig”. This is really a perfect example of how much they love their fans and interaction with them; they don’t just want to play their tracks and that’s that, they want to make sure the crowd are loving every single second.

‘Happy New Year’ shows just how together they are and Jackson vigorously exuding their ‘live for the moment’ vibe, “Cos I’m never gonna be this young / And everything I do one day will just be done

The girls announced they were going to do a “karaoke banger” the crowd went silent as they tried to figure out what the banger was going to be. Juliette’s deep brooding tones rolled out “turn around” and the crowd went wild, singing the loudest they had done the entire night. If you hadn’t guessed it was Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ yet the band changed it from a belt out ballad into a seductive bluesy track. After the song ended Jackson reaffirmed that it was truly a banger.

The Mercury Prize nominated band round up their electrifying set showcasing their insane musical abilities with ‘Sucker’. The crowd favourite is packed full of poppy “ooohs” and wolf howls that some of the crowd was eager to get involved in. Then Jackson ended the night with a sultry  “I’m a sucker for you”.

This band is one of music’s best kept secrets and it won’t be too long until that secret is let out.

Their debut album ‘Love in the 4th Dimension’ is out now!
