Mooncake is a Russian post-rock band founded in Moscow early 2006. In five years time the band released three EPs and one full length album, was warmly welcomed both by listeners and critics not only in Russia but all over the world as well and shared stage with such bands as God is an Astronaut, Explosions in the sky, Caspian, Russian Circles.
Most critics emphasize that Mooncake has successfully revised such conservative genre as post-rock and its clichés and in the end the band came up with its own style and sound that one can easily recognize. Mooncake is sometimes compared to Pink Floyd or Mogwai but the band has made a name for itself having developed its own style and became quiet popular among connoisseurs of genre both home and abroad. Catchy melodies, atmosphere, the ideal balance between rapture and grief: all this has always been Mooncake's distinctive feature.
The main idea of the band’s music is to open the door to infinite space, cosmos, kaleidoscope of meanings, wide opportunities and sparkling hope in any everyday thing, everywhere: in a glass of milk, bookshelf, tree or forest path, in each everyday action and life, no matter would it be a walk or a bus trip, lessons or work in the office.
