Big, bright, jangly guitars inspired by R.E.M. and The Smiths mixed 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. François' obsession with songwriting and love for bands such as The Stone Roses, Neil Young and The Kinks led the group to record two dozen demos. John brought grooves from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The War On Drugs and Future Islands. François Rousseau (drums) joined the band in 2015. 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.
Their first full-length album, which is self-titled, was released on February 2nd, 2018. Recorded in Montreal's Plateau at Breakglass Studios and the result of a nine day recording session, the album was produced by David Smith (Patrick Watson, Elephant Stone, Leif Vollebekk) and its artwork was done by Montreal artist Olivier Chartrand. The Moonlight Club's own their mix of 60s Folk Rock Jangle with 80’s new wave. They don't hesitate to embrace studio recording's inevitable imperfections. The result is an authentic sound carried by a significant energy and sometimes tinged with melancholy.
