The band formed after Stacey, Gordon, Kevin and original drummer Murdo MacKenzie were recruited as a backing band for Colin MacLeod aka The Boy Who Trapped The Sun back in 2006. Colin went on to sign a publishing contract with Universal and moved to London. Stacey, Gordon and Murdo had built up such a rapport that they decided to continue as a collective.
The Buzz

Honestly, This World is a phenomenally fluent debut, as the skill and experience of its performers ensure that its meanings, moods and emotions are articulated loudly and clearly. The songwriting can be a little loose and undefined (‘Fire’ is the only bona fide straight-to-the-point pop song), but the ebb and flow of this record’s ambition and scope is nothing to be ashamed of. The Moth & The Mirror have plenty of wonderful ideas in them, and are more than capable of bringing them brilliantly to life. Really, they deserve to be stars in their own right.

Honestly, This World es un fenomenalmente fluído debut, como la habilidad y experiencia de sus intérpretes para asegurarse que su significado, estados de ánimo y emociones se articulen en voz alta y clara. La composición puede ser un poco floja e indefinida (“Fire” es la única canción pop estandar), pero el flujo y reflujo de la ambición de este registro y su alcance no es nada de que avergonzarse. The Moth & The Mirror tienen un montón de ideas maravillosas, y son más que capaces de traerlos a la vida con brillantez. Realmente, merecen ser estrellas por derecho propio. –drownedinsound.com
