For anyone who hasn't seen them...

Folk funksters The Moonsets (formerly The Flumes) combine Electric Harp, Bass, drums and soulful vocals to create an eclectic blend of psychedelic folk laced with soul, funk, world, blues and a splash of subtropical groove. It's difficult to pin these musical adventurers down to one genre so be prepared to have any preconceptions blown in the best possible way.

The Moonsets independently produce and record on 100% solar power in their old wooden shack on the northern edges of the Sunshine Coast.

Here's what people are saying about the new EP...

"There is nothing cooler than an electric harp! The chilled vibes it creates and the pull and flow of the music are so enchanting". ~ Nkechi Anele Triple J

"Had no idea that an electric harp could have such a great, groovy, psychedelic and luscious rock sound, one that fits perfectly with the rest of the (fantastic) band and with some soulfully mesmerizing female vocals. Every song here shines in its own unique way, like pearls scattered in the sultry underbrush of a thick, tropical forest". Favorite track: Firefly. ~ muschiosauro

"The Moonsets play what you’d imagine in your head having known they’re from the ‘Sunshine Coast’ of Australia. Elements of psychedelic rock hazed with soulful and bluesy vocals and holding a pretty damn catchy island beat throughout. All in all this is a hot find and one I’ll be waiting for the rest of you to join the party soon". ~ Bucky
