Already Heard
INTERVIEW: MOOSE BLOOD
This week Canterbury emo-rock four piece Moose Blood release their debut full-length.
Entitled 'I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time', the record contains eleven songs that
wear their hearts on their sleeves and is wrapped in a plethora of catchy hooks. We spoke to two fourths of the band as drummer Glenn Harvey and bassist Kyle Todd discussed the
album, working with Beau Burchell, joining up with No Sleep Records, and more.

scene and more.
