Moon Palace is a queer Seattle rock band led by identical twin sisters Cat Biell (guitar, vocals) and Carrie Biell (bass, vocals). The twins began writing songs together as teenagers, cultivating a musical bond made particularly significant as children of two Deaf parents. Joined by Jude Miqueli (drums) and Darcey Zoller (cello, synth), the Biells write hook-driven, nature-inspired psychedelia with dreamy guitar discord and unique sibling harmonies.
The release of their self-titled debut in 2017 garnered accolades with music blogs, magazines, and radio stations locally and around the world. KEXP selected Shapeshifter, their "climactic cut...an ocean ripple slow cascading into a tsunami", as the KEXP Song of the Day. "Their music radiates a warmth, tranquility and closeness that arrives like a welcome embrace amid turbulent times and changing seasons", writes Jonathan Zwickel of City Arts Magazine. Moon Palace has shared stages with beloved NW artists like Thunderpussy, Y La Bamba, and Sera Cahoone.
