If Thor’s “Hammer of the Gods” from Immigrant Song landed in the hands of four wise, willful, and wild women it would sound something like Thunderpussy. The quartet — Molly Sides (vocals), Whitney Petty (guitar), Julius (bass) and Ruby Dunphy (drums) — specialize in performance-based old school rock and roll, like Led Zeppelin in lipstick.
Moon Palace is a five-piece Seattle band with sounds inspired by vast landscapes and the invisible forces that bring us together. The band formed in 2016 and consists of twin sisters Cat Biell (guitar, vocals) and Carrie Biell (bass, vocals).
Alina Santillan plays guitar, vocals, and trumpet, while Darcey Zoller plays cello and Jude Miqueli is on drums.
Moon Palace songs are dominated by the use of vocal harmonies and haunting guitar melodies. Seattle has embraced the dawn of Moon Palace with a feature in CityArts Magazine and their song “Shapeshifter” received KEXP Song of the Day.
Moon Palace has played venues in Seattle such as Neumos, Chop Suey, The Sunset Tavern, Repair Revolution, Barboza, and The Royal Room. They have shared the stage with live acts such as Sera Cahoone, Shenandoah Davis, Tomten, Sundries, Chris Cheveyo, and Jamie Aaron Aux. The Moon Palace self-titled debut record came out Oct. 13, 2017 on Plume records and finds them further experimenting with collaboration and song structure.
