"a young fresh ensemble with a pop sensibility, the girls speak for an upcoming generation. as musicians and writers, they craft songs that are anchored in alternative folk with meaningful lyrics and deliver with compelling stage presence in their live shows."
Masterful indie folk-pop trio Moonrise Nation released their debut album, Glamour Child, July 28 on Zinc Records, a label formed by Bobby Z of Prince’s band, The Revolution. Hailing from Oak Park, Illinois, songwriting and vocal duties are equally shared between guitarist Emma McCall, keyboardist Arden Baldinger, and cellist Eva Baldinger the latter two of which are sisters. Their storytelling is crafted from a very personal place, deftly sculpted into a layered, universal experience. Produced by Stephen Shirk (Alabama Shakes, Delta Spirit), the album captures the vertiginous, Millennial high-lows of self-confidence and doubt, happiness and practicality, innocence and reality, feminist strength and vulnerability.
