Moonrise Nation

Moonrise Nation could be the Midwest’s answer to Haim — only they’re better. Haim is too slavishly retro (the three L.A. sisters’ influences are so obvious) and the band couldn’t stop pinching themselves when they played at First Avenue because they loved “Purple Rain” and OMG! Don’t expect any such gushing when Moonrise Nation sisters Arden and Eva Bee, and sidekick Emma McCall come from Chicago for their Minneapolis debut. They already have a Purple connection — Prince & the Revolution drummer Bobby Z signed them to his Zinc Records, and his brother, David Z, produced Moonrise Nation’s self-titled EP of alt-pop with occasional jazzy instincts.
