Candy Moon

from the Alice album.

Watling & Bates – Candy Moon

Watling & Bates’ old time Gothic hillbilly and honkytonk jalopy has taken a sharp left down a bright boulevard of flashing lights and hot jungle beats.

Candy Moon unleashes the reckless exuberance of first love with this enthusiastic offering of rockabilly jazz and hillbilly swing.

 ‘Dance like no one’s watching’ has taken on a new meaning during the COVID-19 era, with dancefloors looking to be shut down for quite a while.

The infectious rhythm and addictive beat of Candy Moon will drive you to your feet in the safety and comfort of your own home and beyond.

Fire up the mood lights and turn on the wireless as Watling & Bates deliver some howling nostalgia showcasing the elegant guitar stylings of producer Thor Phillips and masterful drumbeats of Marcus Schintler.
