Moonbabies are Carina Johansson Frick & Ola Frick. Formed in Malmö, Sweden where we have been doing our thing since the late 90's. We have released 4 albums, plenty of singles, EPs, mini albums & full-length cassettes independently ever since then.
Truthfully, we make music just because it is the greatest outlet in the whole world. There are few other things that can get the hair on your arms to stand up or to move your mind into another place. Music can do that. Books and film can do that.
Pinpointing what kind of music we do is harder than you may think. We started out quite a bit Shoegazey, from there we went into a a pop frenzy and became every melodic, later more layered and sophisticated. Some of our musical references (at least the ones we've been directly inspired by) are Fleetwood Mac, My Bloody Valentine, ELO, Kate Bush, Air, Brian Eno and Yo La Tengo. Dream Pop Music, guess that's what you call it. Our music has in later years been drawn to rythmic and danceable tendencies, drawn from a lot of Electronic music that we've been hugely influenced by, and put in a context that's more Classic pop with the organic elements (the brand of Pop we have done for quite a while)-
Our new album Wizards on the Beach is the product of 7 years of songwriting and soul-searching. The critic's opinions has been pretty fantastic and it feels amazing to be back doing what we love to do: Making new music. Hope it will bring you pleasure, and perhaps make your days become a little lighter, a little more joyful, because that's what music is all about in the long run. ❤︎ Carina & Ola
