Biography

Murmurations is Moon Goose’s 4th LP, to be released on 27th January 2024, via Fruits de Mer Records and Inflatable Tarmac Records. 

About Murmurations

Murmurations describe a natural phenomenon in which a large group of starlings fly in unisson using complex laws of movement depending on relative birds around each individual. This behaviour can be observed on land in herds and under the Sea in schools of fish. They are the natural answer of the collective facing a common danger. What seems to be drawn by the power of one leader is actually generated by the awareness of every individual, working together towards the collective fate. There must be a lesson there. Moon Geese (mean geese) on the other side don’t perform murmurations because there aren’t any predator on the Moon, except for a few quickly gone humans and a couple multilingual slow bots on wheels.

Murmurations is our 4th album, written, recorded and mixed all within 2023. The songs are whispered by the Barn when we meet on dark icy nights, disturbing the quietness of the Welsh countryside nights with our spontaneous and unrestricted turmoil. Recorded and mixed at Twin Peaks Studio, Wales, by Adam Fuest (Mott the Hoople, Babyshambles, The Cure) and published by Fruits de Mer Records and Inflatable Tarmac Records.

Moon Goose put Space, Psych, Prog and Motorik in a bag, shook it, poked it, burned it, then spread the ashes from the top of the Welsh Mountains with the wind in their face until their eyes were crying black tears.

Murmurations will be released on Pink Vinyl (x300), Digipak CD and available on all streaming platforms on 27/01/24. The presales have started
We also do a very short run of boxsets to stack all the Moon Goose albums in one hand printed black box, all sold out already.
