Angela Perley & The Howlin’ Moons

Since their incarnation, The Howlin’ Moons have become an extension of Perley’s songwriting and the band’s sound has been gradually evolving. In the last three years, the band has released four EPs, Black Cat (2010), Yellow Moon (2011), Fireside (2011) and Nowhere is Now Here (December 2012). Nowhere is Now Here is by far the most rocking EP in the collection through its well-balanced sound of aggression and intimacy. Before you know it, you’ll be crumpling up a letter from your ex-lover in “Brooklyn Girls,”threatening that cheating man in “18 Feet Under” or even experiencing your first love at the “County Fair.” Don’t be fooled by Angela’s charm, though. This young woman will make you fall in love while she sings of love, heartbreak, and even murder.
