‘Mad By Moonlight’ is the second album from Southampton’s Thomas Tantrum. Thomas Tantrum have created this album based solely around sleep, or lack of it. Including references to female insanity, insomnia and things that go bump in the night, each song is wrapped in a dream like sonic cotton wool. It’s twelve tracks are influenced by each members love for wildly varying music whether it be The B-52s, Abba, The Sugarcubes or The Cure.
Thomas Tantrum released their debut in 2008 to critical acclaim with the likes of Lily Allen and Glasvegas hailing them as their favourite new band. Since then they’ve undergone some major changes. They’ve enlisted the talents of a new drummer, Dave Wade Brown, and front woman Megan Thomas’s voice has matured and blossomed but still keeps it’s wry innocence, charm and wit.
