Crescent Moon is a band from the Dutch village Babberich and was founded in 2014 by brothers Eric (1965) and Frank (1962) Peters.
In 2015, joined by Bas (2000) and Tim (2000) Peters, both sons of Frank Peters. The band creates independent, self-produced music that can best be described as gloomy sphere rock.
Crescent Moon is a studio band and chooses not to perform live. Everything (music, recording, engineering, mastering, distribution, marketing, design, video promotion) is done as far as possible by the band. In this sense, the band is truly Independent, “Indie”.
Songs are usually formed around the lyrics and outlined by a melancholic atmosphere. There is much room for acoustic guitars and piano. For the guitar solos and backing vocals guest musicians are hired. All other music is produced by the band itself.
The Album: The Lidless Room
The idea to create a concept album began on New Year's Eve 2014. In January 2015 the concept was conceived and written. The concept is about the struggle with the modern communication era and plays at three levels:
- Nostalgia, hang to the past -Fear of the future where communication is increasingly digital and the internet becomes more and more dominant
- Dream state
The title comes from the poem'' Insomniac'' of the American poet Sylvia Plath. The concept is also based on the parable'' Beforethe Law'' by Franz Kafka.
All songs were written by one or more band members. The lyrics were written by Frank Peters. The album was produced by Eric, Frank and Tim Peters.
Guest musicians on the album: Chico Dommeck–guitar, Mirjam van Vuurenand Thea Leenders background vocals. The engineering and the mastering was done mainly by Eric Peters.
The artwork for the album was provided by Margot Peters (sister of Eric and Frank)
