The Sign of Leo releases new single 'Talking to the Moon'


The rock crew from the Netherlands known as The Sign of Leo have released their latest single, titled, “Talking to the Moon.” The single has been paired with a concurrently released B-side single, “Don't Let It Pass You By.” Together they are the most significant official releases from the band since their late 2012 singles, “Look Up at the Sky” and “Where Do We Go from Here?” which garnered much affirmative attention from critics and music lovers alike, and which quickly became an important milestone in the Sign of Leo experience.

The immediately striking attribute of the Sign of Leo is the live, genuine rock feel with which they infuse all of their music. Their sound can especially be compared to artists such as David Bowie, John Cale, Talk Talk, Echo and the Bunnymen, and Tears for Fears. Like bands such as these, the high quality of their songwriting may be easily marked while hearing any of their original tunes. It is a striking feature of Sign that each of their songs is infectious, intelligent, and singularly imaginative.

Their overall tone, which is rooted in the '60s, '70s and early '80s styles, is certain to be appreciated by fans of music that does not bury live instrumentation with layer after layer of digital effects, as has become standard in contemporary pop. It will also cheer the audiophile with an ear for well-orchestrated samples and keyboards, which the Sign of Leo use tastefully and gorgeously as accompaniments to their guitars, drums, and bass.

Speaking of his impetus in creating music, singer Martin Erich writes, “I was first introduced to music by my older brother. I picked up a lot of influences that way. From The Beatles to classical music like Bach, and also jazz and blues by, for instance, John Coltrane and Muddy Waters. I started playing guitar and writing my own material later on. The Sign Of Leo is the ultimate result of my efforts. And I’m very pleased with it.”

Music listeners worldwide will be likewise pleased when “Talking to the Moon” by the Sign of Leo becomes available 8 December 2013. Get in early.
