The Big Moon – “Wide Eyes”

The Big Moon are back with their emotive new single “Wide Eyes”, a huge anthem celebrating love and solidarity at the point of breaking. Singer Jules Jackson shows just how much she cherishes her sisterhood with her bandmates, in what will be regarded as a true peak for the indie rock quartet.

"I was desperate to write a really big, happy song. My soul was overflowing with the joy of something, but I was too physically and mentally exhausted to actually string words together and define it and make music with it. In late 2021, I met Jessica Winter who came into my life like an angel and helped me turn those jumbled feelings into a song and I think it’s just a mad snapshot of a time when life just felt huge and holy and raw and incredible. I was nursing a five-month-old baby, I was barely sleeping, I was losing my hair, I was pumping and sweating and crying and lonely and only just about coping, but amongst all that, I felt a burning love and a new kind of happiness. I guess the world felt innocent again. For a while anyway."

 "For me, this song feels so personal but when Soph, Celia and Fern stepped in, it turned into something bigger, and it feels like friendship and promise - we have loved every minute of being back together and doing what we do. With this song I get to spend three and a half minutes in that place, and that time, and I’m so glad I have it and I’m so glad I get to share it with people." – Jules Jackson
