Dive into the inspirations of Moon Worm, a Tame Impalary-Steve Lacyesque, dreamy wonderland of nostalgic bittersweet musings.

Moon Worm is an ethereal indie rock band that has been captivating audiences with their otherworldly soundscapes, recently releasing their latest single, ‘Peace of Mind.’ This mesmerising track offers a glimpse into the band’s creative evolution and unique musical vision.

The band’s frontman and creative force, Jack Schaefer, founded Moon Worm during his college years. A DIY musician and dreamer, Jack was drawn to the idea of creating a sonic universe that blended elements of indie rock with a touch of ethereal and psychedelic tones.

As a self-taught guitarist and songwriter, he began to experiment with different sounds, ultimately releasing his first album ‘Odyssey’ in 2022.  The name “Moon Worm” was born from Jack’s fascination with the cosmos and the name perfectly captured his desire to create music that transcended boundaries and took listeners on a cosmic journey of self-discovery. 

‘Peace of Mind’  serves as a testament to Moon Worm’s musical maturity and evolution. It was born from a collective desire to convey a message of hope and tranquility in a world filled with chaos and uncertainty. The songwriting process involved heartfelt conversations and a genuine exploration of emotions.

‘Peace of Mind’ seamlessly weaves together soulful vocals, dreamy synth layers, rhythmic precision, and melodic baselines The result is a mesmerising sonic tapestry that transports listeners to a place of serenity and introspection.

Moon Worm has put together a playlist of inspirations, each song weaving a cosmic tapestry, each thread connecting to the ethereal aura of Moon Worm’s artistry. Just as Moon Worm draws inspiration from Tame Impala, Steve Mcqueen by M83 sets a dreamy tone with its pulsating synth, while the introspection of ‘Chamber of Reflection’ by Mac Demarco echoes Moon Worm’s desire for cosmic exploration.

Sunbeam Sound Machine’s ‘I Dreamt I Saw You’ mirrors a longing for connection that we felt in Peace of Mind, and Washed Out’s ‘Feel It All Around’ envelops the listener in a hazy embrace, akin to Moon Worm’s sonic cloud. The celestial voyage of GUM’s ‘The Blue Marble’ pairs beautifully next to MGMT’s ‘When You Die’ and Tame Impala’s ‘New Person, Same Old Mistakes’; touching on transformation.

In this musical constellation, Moon Worm shines as a star, drawing inspiration from these tracks’ emotional depths, cosmic vibes, and sonic journeys, to create an enchanting universe of their own.
