“The three players in Chicago’s Moontype orbited each other for years before they came in phase. Bodies of Water, their debut album for local label Born Yesterday, documents travel, insecurity, friendship, and the titular element—all of which are representative of the band members’ strong connection to place and to one another. ‘Being rooted in the landscape became important to me while studying geology, which completely changed how I think about the world,’ offers songwriter, vocalist and bassist Margaret McCarthy of the album’s central themes. The arrangements themselves feel like open-hearted negotiations; sparse fingerpicking gives way to saturated tube-screaming as naturally as the changing of tides. Over twelve tracks, Moontype revels in the woozy concoction of its many influences, but always lands on punchy hooks, shifting between arrangements both spacious and mystifying without abandoning their conversational warmth.” — Sadie Dupuis

“Amidst a sea of melodies both agreeable and dizzying, Moontype’s songs have another X factor: their joint vocals. There’s a cheerful lightheartedness to how they sing together, but the resulting euphoria cuts deep, supplying listeners with 100 percent organic, sun-kissed joy and also leaving a mark on the band members.” —Paste Magazine
