Biography

House Above The Sun (HATS) are a five piece band from London, England, fronted by singer/songwriter Jim Moreton. Distinguished by inventive guitar motifs and rich male/female vocal harmonies, their melodic and poetic songs range from bittersweet balladry to tightly wound guitar based epics. 

HATS debut album 'Five Hours North' was released in late 2017 and featured early live favourites such as 'Tonopah' and 'St Augustine's Blues'. This was followed up in February 2020 with their critically acclaimed 5 track EP 'Time I Got Goin'; a more acoustic-laden collection of songs that experimented with lap steel, trumpet, Hammond organ and strings. With plans for a UK tour in Spring 2020 dashed by Covid-19, the band have spent the past year writing and recording new music, due for release in 2022. 

HATS are David Mongirulli (Drums), Ariel Moreton (Vocals and percussion) Jack Neale (Bass guitar), David Atkinson (Lap steel and guitar), and Jim Moreton (Vocals and guitar). 

 

REVIEWS:

'House Above The Sun deal in beautifully constructed, tightly wound guitar based epics that unfurl like the best of late 70s Television and Patti Smith, with a folk and Americana twist. Smart lyrics complete the picture'-New Roots

'Cracking EP from London band with a bright future. 8/10 '-Americana UK

'This EP should definitely whet the appetite until a new album is released, and on this form, that album could be an instant classic' - FATEA

'Powerful folk-hewn storytelling' - Clash Magazine
