Mixing big, bright, jangly guitars from REM and The Smiths with 80s new wave grooves, Montreal's The Moonlight Club is the creation of longtime friends Francois Royer Mireault (guitars, vocals) and John Pankert (bass, vocals).
The pair moved to Montreal in 2010 and discovered an eclectic and vibrant music scene that revived their high school ambitions of recording music.
The duo was joined by Cedric, a friend who shared their love for obscure 90s bands. François' obsession with songwriting and love for bands such as The Stone Roses, Neil Young and The Kinks led the group to record two dozens of demos. John brought grooves from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The War On Drugs and Future Islands.
In 2015, impressed by local band Elephant Stone's EP, The Glass Box, François contacted David Smith at Breakglass Studios to help them record a debut EP. The result was a five-song set called Words in Gold. The band was introduced to Danny Lütz who would come and play Wurlitzer on 4 songs. The band's collaboration with local artist Olivier Charland for the artwork would become a trademark.
François Rousseau (drums) joined the band in 2015. The trio immediately started working on new songs and locked themselves again at Breakglass studios. The result of the 9 days sessions is an 11 song self-titled debut album. The band re-emerged with their first official single, 'A Little Too Easy', on November 10, 2017, promoting the album that will be released in February 2018.
