Little Steven Van Zandt, famed guitarist in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and former co-star of The Sopranos, is loving “Heat Lightning” (STREAM | MP3) by Austin-based band, Moonlight Towers.

Today on his long-running SiriusXM radio show, “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” Van Zandt named the tune his “Coolest Song In The World” for the week.  Also in the studio was Andrew Loog Oldham, legendary producer and manager of The Rolling Stones, who decribed the song as “cracking!” and one his “tops for the year” so far.

Proclaimed “amazing” by Performing Songwriter for creating what the Chicago Reader calls “perfectly molded power-pop,” Moonlight Towers is “Austin’s favorite three-minute heroes” according to the Austin American-Statesman and the renowned music city’s “finest power pop export” (Pop Culture Press).

Moonlight Towers (taking its name from the tall vintage streetlights that illuminate Austin’s nights) is a genuine band that does what comes naturally: writing, recording and playing real rock n’ roll (with a hearty pop kick!) It’s really that simple.

On Day Is The New Night, the band’s third long-player, the foursome delivers its finest and richest offering yet, full of the timeless potency of two mighty guitars and muscular bass and drums bring the urgency, buoying vocals that alternately sear and soar.

Moonlight Towers is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
