The Strokes’ bassist Nikolai Fraiture takes a turn as front man for the “underground supergroup” (NME) Summer Moon, who will be releasing their debut single ‘With You Tonight’ on DTF Records/Membran.

The demo version of the track, which surfaced earlier in 2016, triggered so much excitement and buzz around Fraiture’s new band that it was eventually chosen as a 'Track of the Week” by NME and was featured as the soundtrack for Alexa Chung’s collaboration with AG Jeans.

The first incarnation of Summer Moon featured Fraiture’s friends Erika Spring (Au Revoir Simone), Tennessee Thomas (The Like), and solo artist Lewis Lazar. However, the collective nature of this project now sees Fraiture joined by Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction) on drums, Camila Grey (Uh Huh Her) on keys / vocals, and Noah Harmon (The Airborne Toxic Event) joining on guitar.

Summer Moon has already managed to notch up acclaimed performances in Fraiture’s native NYC, as well as playing showcases at SXSW, and opening for Father John Misty at the prestigious Summerstage Festival in Central Park.

The band's first album will follow in early 2017, when the group will also tour the UK.

"There are hints of New Order to its electro-funk undertones, alongside the sunny, trebly guitars of Men At Work’s ‘Down Under’ – an odd, but brilliant combination" - NME
“Upbeat, danceable tracks with strong basslines and a slightly futuristic-meets-post punk vibe" - Noisey
