Alex Moir – ‘Night Of Nights’ Review

Alex Moir never disappoints, and his newest single is no different. A stomping guitar-led flurry of indie-alternative goodness, ‘Night Of Nights’ treads a comfort zone previously wandered (and since longed for) by Coldplay.

But Coldplay comparisons don’t really do justice for ‘Night Of Nights’. It’s pretty much the epitomising sound of ‘the best of british indie’, as if peak-period Coldplay orchestrated a collaboration with Noel Gallagher and Johnny Marr. The guitars punctuate a powerful rhythm section, with a vocal melody straight out of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Combining such prominent influences can be disastrous for new artists, sounding like a cheap knockoff, but not for Moir.

Following in the glorious footsteps of ‘Like Ted Dexter’ and ‘Havana’, Alex Moir seems to be on a roll of indie-rock hits – and we’re definitely not complaining. You can listen to the track below.

9/10
