UK alt-pop fast-risers Cape Cub share euphoric single “Moonglow”
Cape Cub have shared their latest statement of intent. Having started as the bedroom solo project of songwriter and producer Chad Male, Cape Cub has taken off in a new direction. Now joined by four bandmates, “Moonglow” is the first single they have released as a band. With huge pop hooks and hopeful sentiment, the single is a euphoric explosion with a summer-ready sing-along chorus.
Cape Cub have picked up over 500,000 new playlist followers this week
Discussing the track, Chad said, “’Moonglow’ is the first song we’ve put out as a band and it’s a statement of intent for things going forward. Sonically speaking, it's been hugely influenced by our live set. There’s a wider sonic palette with this single than previous Cape Cub songs and we’ve gone all out. I mean, for the first time we've gone for bigger drums, chants, moments of both intimacy and almost over the top grandeur, a sample of a cafe in Copenhagen, and even organs, which is definitely a first”.
With features on 22 influential playlists including New Music Friday and Electro Chill, the band have picked up over 580,000 new playlist followers this week, taking their total to 2.16 million (Instrumental Music Scouting Platform).
