Boston-based power pop punk trio Allison & Moon have released a new single, titled “Puppy Love,” out on all digital platforms now. A sweet proclamation of affection, “Puppy Love” is an energetic combination of power pop and pop punk influences. Produced by Chris Curran at Reclaim Studios, the single successfully blends together soft, expressive verses and a powerhouse, explosive chorus to create an early 2000s, nostalgic sound, as well as a sweet Valentine’s Day surprise.

About the single, lead vocalist Allison states: 

“I wrote Puppy Love about the feeling of falling in love with someone and being too darn nervous to say it! My now-girlfriend actually asked me, ‘do you think dogs fall in love’ on my birthday a couple of months into dating while we were driving home. So, I took that spark and expanded the idea. I like this song because it feels exciting with highs and lows. The music mirrors the emotion.” 

Allison & Moon is a Boston-based power-pop-punk-emo band comprised of Allison Griggs (guitar/vocals), Mike Hayden (bass), and Courtney Peterson (drums). The band bloomed from the seeds of Allison’s acoustic singer-songwriter solo project after she released her first full-band EP, The Sea independently, collaborating with Westfall Recording. About forming the band, Allison says, “I loved writing, playing, and singing…I was just missing the communal and social aspect of music, and I wanted to rock out. I’ve wanted to be in a band as long as I can remember, so I decided I would do it myself and the right people would join along the way. That’s when I found Mike and Courtney!” After recording The Sea, Mike and Courtney joined and the band started playing gigs around Boston including O’Brien’s Pub and the Hard Rock Cafe. They released an acoustic EP shortly after, entitled How About You? Allison & Moon’s music is reminiscent of turn-of-the-century sounds and references bands like Paramore, Daughter, Tegan and Sara, and ABBA as influences. As a queer artist, Allison recognizes the importance of representation in music, and the band is excited to promote diversity, inclusivity, and to foster a community in music. “Puppy Love” is available now
