Colin Gilmore and Nicolette Good are the creative forces behind Ladder to the Moon: a tight-harmony weirdo-folk-pop duo with a playful streak. Their songs star winsome loners on cosmic journeys, and heartsick dreamers caught in bizarro romances. Writing in spiral notebooks together since 2013, Gilmore and Good found common ground in influences like Duran Duran, The Kinks, They Might Be Giants, Aimee Mann, Beck, and Neko Case. Ladder to the Moon’s sound captures the bracing beauty of their native Texas landscape, told through the lens of poetic imagination.
