Moonsoup is the creation of Falkirk-born artist, Niamh Baker. The Glasgow based band have Baker’s meticulously crafted songs weave in and out of Grunge, Indie Rock, and Pop; culminating in their back and forth sound between intimate and abrasive.
Their first EP ‘do what u want’ was released under Gold Mold Records and prompted Moonsoup’s breakout in the Glasgow DIY Scene. The first Studio Moonsoup EP was included as part of Olive Grove’s Archipelago Collection, funded by Creative Scotland, and released in 2019. The release led to blossoming
success for Moonsoup, being selected as Album of the Week on BBC Rapal. The track ‘I Don’t Like Rocket Unless It’s in Small Portions’ was met with particular enthusiasm, drawing new attention to the band. Baker was set for a promising 2020, preparing for a solo tour with Broken Chanter and Randolph’s Leap, and chosen as one of Vic Galloway’s BBC Scotland’s ’10 Artists to look out for in 2020’. However the exciting prospects for Moonsoup were put to a halt with the decline of opportunities and stand-still state of the music industry during the pandemic. Baker utilised this break in live performance as an opportunity to focus on writing new material and forming the outfit as it stands today.
The Tolbooth Café Concert series was made possible with thanks to funding by Creative Scotland.
