Sonically, Moonshine Oversight are difficult to precisely pinpoint, and their influences are clearly numerous. They are grounded in progressive rock, but there are strong grunge influences in Julien Pivi’s vocals. On Vanishing Lines, there are strong elements of progressive metal, folk and even country to be heard. Moonshine Oversight are a refreshing project in a landscape of derivative rock music.
To date, the band have released one studio project, the full length LP Vanishing Lines, which dropped at the start of this month. I won’t go into too much detail about the album here, as we have a full review of it this week, but needless to say it’s a triumph.
Moonshine Oversight have released one video to date: ‘Feel’, the penultimate track from Vanishing Lines. ‘Feel’ is a powerful single, and a great showcase of the band’s sound. You can listen to it down below.
I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Moonshine Oversight in a live capacity, nor could I find any clips of them performing online. I did uncover a clip of Julien Pivi and Julien Ventura performing ‘Young Man’ acoustically. Although it might not capture the heaviness of the Moonshine Oversight live set, it is a lovely performance nonetheless.
Moonshine Oversight is our Band Of The Week here on Good Music Matters. Now that you’ve been introduced to them, why not go a little bit deeper?
