Moon Safari is a prog rock band from Sweden. If you are a fan of prog rock from the Golden Age, so to speak, there's no telling which side of the Moon Safari fence you will fall, as they are heavily influenced by Yes, Genesis, Kansas, Ambrosia, etc., yet, they have their own sound and identity. Will they appeal to you? That's for you to discover, if you haven't already.
They may not have the heft of some of the original prog bands, but they are the new, updated face of the genre, which should be encouraging; they've been forging their path for 10-years. Is their sound ca. 1970-something? Some think it is.
This post isn't a recommendation as much as it is PSA for a new prog band with potential for you to check out if you're a fan of the genre. They may be too 'sweet' for your taste, but I'd be surprised if you weren't at least somewhat impressed. They may not be your version of true prog, but then again, it's 2013, and the future is now. You may like and appreciate the complexity of the song arrangements, but may find the lyrics, here and there, sappy, cheesy, or too optimistic. :) Then again, that might be a nice change for your usual lyrical diet. Those are the disclaimers, plain and simple. But what do I know? I'm not sure what I think of them myself. :) Just thought it would be fun to introduce a new-ish band for the new year.
The band released a LIVE album in 2012 entitled, "Gettysburg Address" -- from their live performance at Gettysburg, PA's Rosfest 2011.
**NOTE: Not to be confused with the album by Air. **
