Emerging out of the combustive indie music scene of southern California in 2009, Max and the Moon and their relentless gig-playing have created a buzz that rides on its own frequency. The three-piece band, on the verge of officially releasing their second EP titled "The Way I See," display a talent for intricate songwriting and sounds ranging in resemblance to early Coldplay and the dancy catchiness of Passion Pit. Substance magazine writes, "their music has a way of pulling you in with their starry guitar echoing in combination with John’s soothing vocals and superb upper register." On their first release, a self-titled EP (2010), Max and the Moon laid the foreground with a straight-up indie album. Laden with strong guitar licks, steady piano and punctuated vocal harmonies—the band makes full use of two primary vocalists—the EP affirmed the band as a group to pay attention to. Max and the Moon's follow-up, "The Way I See," shows the band's maturation into stronger songwriting and experimentation with new sounds, expanding their scope and offering a significant contribution to the ever-changing music scene in the wake of fellow Los Angeles-based band Local Natives. Guitarist John Velasquez earned a degree in music at Cal State University, Fullerton, and began collaborating with longtime friends Matt and Dillon Couchois in the two brothers' small garage studio. The three-piece has come a long way in the few short years since their formation, challenging themselves everyday with booking shows or heading back to the drawing board on a new song that doesn't quite capture the right vision. In the present age of endless hype around new music, Max and the Moon stay true to passionately personal songwriting. That isn't to say these guys are low-key, though; the band revels in putting on energetic rock shows. Read more on Last.fm.
