They have recently supported The Internet (Odd Future’s Syd tha Kyd & Matt Martians) on their US/Canada tour.
A dreamy neo-soul/jazz trio from Los Angeles, CA, Moonchild are an exciting new addition to Tru Thoughts, fitting in a treat on the eclectic indie’s roster. In a whirlwind three years Moonchild have self-released two albums, and collaborated or toured with highly-respected names in the soul-jazz crowd including Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, India.Arie, Leela James and more. Attracting international tastemaker support from the likes of Gilles Peterson (BBC 6Music) who featured the group on his staple Brownswood Bubblers 11 comp last year, WHUR-DC, KCRW and LA 102.3, the band have also found themselves being praised by a host of iconic artists including Robert Glasper, Laura Mvula, James Poyser, Jazzy Jeff, Jose James and Tyler, The Creator and The Internet. Having signed to Tru Thoughts, they have gained a wider audience still via the official release for their album ‘Please Rewind’ on the UK label this year.
