About MoonfreaK

Högbacka, Finland

Members:
Sebastian Bäcksbacka
Anders Salin
Patrick Öström
Måns Aldén
Tapio Laasonen

Sebastian's voice is some kind of mix between Ian Anderson's and Michael Stipe's.

Patrick's guitarwork sometimes bursts into Slash-like sounds and sometimes the totally weird.

Måns' tight and interesting basswork has a tendency to bounce into some disco grooves of the seventies.

Anders' drumming is progressive, rock'n'roll, reaggae or afro depending on song and situation. Sometimes a mix of the above.

Tapio's vocals and acoustic guitars has a David Bowie feel.
All these ingredients mixed together makes the unique sound that is MoonfreaK!

The debut album "Suburban Vacation" available now!

Voices about "Suburban Vacation":
"These guys are no beginners.
The melodic guitar-rocking music sounds professional from the first second.
That the thoughts every now and then goes to the R.E.M.-classic Automatic For The People
(partly because Sebastian's voice and singing style resembles Michael Stipe's)
is nothing the guys should be ashamed of, quite the opposite.
On this album you'll find many beatiful melodies.
My personal favorite is "The Lobster Song",
a pure rocker with biting guitar-riffs that stick in your head."
- Henrik Jansson, Åbo Underrättelser 31/05 2008

"ZXC fell in love with Sebastian's voice at once,
and wonders if it's possible to marry it?
This is one of the most interesting new finnswedish bands!"
- Humppe, zxcmusic.net

"Damn this is good!
Sounds like the bastard son of Nirvana, Irland and a finnish forest. "
- Marko Tikkanen, Anyhow Music

"MoonfreaK is so good all demos should be send to major record labels."
- Tusse Thomasson, outosite.fi

"Great melodies and fantastic vocals, MoonfreaK is a rare catch."
- Kai Jauhiainen, Backbeat Records
