WhiteMoor formed in April 2009 from the remains of three of Derby’s finest bands Ejectorseat (Attack Attack Attack + Not My Girl), You-V-Me (Fear, Love and Excitement) and The Beau Peepshow (Love Makes My Head Hurt). Hailed as somewhat of a rogue on the mainstream indie scene, WhiteMoor manage to capture the electric essence of The Killers whilst still holding down the dark atmospheric sounds of visionaries such as New Order and The Doors.
Following the success of their debut single ‘Three Words’ That reached numer 88 in the download chart, WhiteMoor released their debut album on Sound-Hub Records in Janurary 2011 to great critical acclaim. The blistering self-titled record found the band exploding onto the scene, boasting a stunningly unique, yet classic indie live sound. From the energetically upbeat singles ‘Pieces’ and ‘Three Words’, that will have the indie dance floors filled across the country, to the instantly appealing, more orchestral melancholy tracks like ‘Chapters’ and ‘The Element of Surprise’, there is something to make anyone fall head over heels for this stunning debut record by the Derby quartet.
The band are currently in residence at Sound-Hub Studio’s in Debyshire recording their second album that is set for release Summer 2012 and will be playing live again from March 2012.
