Bucky The Moonsets play what you’d imagine in your head having known they’re from the ‘Sunshine Coast’ of Australia. Elements of psychedelic rock hazed with soulful and bluesy vocals and holding a pretty damn catchy island beat throughout. All in all this is a hot find and one I’ll be waiting for the rest of you to join the party soon.

about

Recorded and mixed on 100% Solar power in an old wooden shack on the far northern edges of QLD's Sunshine Coast. Mastered at Yama-Nui Studio by Paulie B. 

This offering is a musical journey exploring everything from the little things like fireflies visiting in the night to the more serious theme of the state of our planet to cheeky llamas who steal bananas and the over-arching power of love.

The Moonsets electric harp, bass & drums trio are unashamedly eclectic, exploring the light, the dark and all the colours in-between, both musically and lyrically. We hope you enjoy the ride!

Formerly recording and playing live as The Flumes, we changed our name (for obvious reasons) at the end of 2016. We're glad we did and think The Moonsets suits us very well, but to reassure everyone that we're the same band, we re-recorded "Firefly". It's an old one for us, still in the live set and much loved.

Track Name: Firefly
Oh Firefly come light up the night and say hello to my new friend
Oh Firefly come share that sweet light and say hello to my blue friend
Oh come weave through her heartstrings – she smiles with a hum
Come weave through her heartstrings sweet thing

Firefly – You light up the night

Oh Firefly come light up the night – come weave your own constellations
Firefly come share your sweet light – a mirror image to the sky
Come weave through our heartstrings we watch the forest come alive
Come play with our heartstrings – Sweet thing

Firefly – You light up the night
Fire take thy flight
You light – you light up the night.

Oh come weave through our heartstrings we watch the forest come undone
Oh come play with our heartstrings – sweet one

Firefly – You light up the night
Fire take thy flight
You light – you light up the night.
Track Name: Supersede
We all know that ganja gets you high
but it's a myriad of offerings that'll truly blow your mind
But according to a law of sold out men
We see you're burning the witches again

Release the Superweed
We got to set it free
Release the Superweed
The weed is all we need

When there's a cure right before our eyes
but the big pharmaceutical companies keep selling us their lies
When just one plant can ease so much suffering
How can we deny the remedy

Release the Superweed
We got to set it free
Release the Superweed
The weed is all we need

Now is the time to plant the seed
And this sick little joke will one day be history
So let's ditch the polyester
that got us into this mess
Go the natural fibre
It feels good upon your breast
The Superweed will supersede
a long list of outdated industries
How can we deny the remedy

Release the Superweed
We got to set it free
Release the Superweed
The weed is all we need
Release the Superweed
Hemp for victory
Track Name: Follow The Dollar
When the power you hold
Is measured in gold
It'll slip through your fingers
Like the soul that you sold
So don't look down now
There's a long drop below you
And your media circus
Won't come to the rescue

You feed us with lies
You lead us with lies
You feed us with lies
And you know it won't fly

If you wade through the squalor
And follow the dollar
Pretty soon you will find
That it's rotten on the inside
Well we may not have many
But we'll vote with or pennies
And we'll take to the street
And vote with our feet

You feed us with lies
You lead us with lies
You feed us with lies
And you know it won't fly
Track Name: Home
The river's burnin
My stomach's churnin
The cogs keep turnin
The lines keep blurrin
The system's broken
It's cracked right open
If this tide keeps risin
There's no use hidin

Home, this is our home
Home
Home, this is our home.
There's no where else to go
Home, this is our home
Home
Home, this is our home
This is our home

The earth is shakin
The wind is howlin
The ocean's chokin
The fire be ragin
The system's broken
It's cracked right open
If this tide keeps risin
There's no use hidin

Home, this is our home
Home
Home, this is our home.
There's no where else to go
Home, this is our home
Home
Home, this is our home
This is our home
Track Name: Llokesh
He goes by the name of Llokesh
Always lurkin in the shadows
Waitin for his next victim
I was peelin myself a little golden treasure
in the form of a ladyfinger
To my surprise when I opened my eyes

A Llama ate my banana

Draped in a feather boa was his partner in crime
A luck dragon, runnin off with my flagon
Or perhaps I need some more wine
Or I could be losin my mind
Cos now the Alpaca's eyein off my tobacca
And Llokesh, he wants my cavendish
To my surprise when I opened my eyes

A llama ate my banana
Track Name: Watermelon
Don't misjudge my intention
You're the star of my destiny

Cast aside your pretension
Come outside and walk with me

The moon is a watermelon
Touch it and it shall explode
The moon is a watermelon
C'mon c'mon and let me hold you

Don't you dwell in trepidation
Come swimmin in a sea of serendipity
And although this aint no simulation
Come inside and dance with me

The world is a minefield
Touch it and it shall explode
The world is a minefield
C'mon c'mon and let me hold you

Well there aint no case for compensation
Accidents like these happen willingly
And although we may never gain redemption
Come upstairs and lie with me

My heart is an atom bomb
Touch it and it shall explode
My heart is an atom bomb
Touch it and it shall explode
My heart is an atom bomb
C'mon c'mon and let me hold you
Let me hold you
