Known as Biscuitland until a year ago, these musicians (minus guitarist Aaron Reneaux) took a garage-pop/dance-rock direction when they adopted the name One Sun One Moon. Featuring material written over the past three years, the band's debut, Collisions, draws from '80s synth-pop and new wave as well as '90s rock like the Cranberries. Fronted by singer and keyboardist Ger Chang (whose vocals seem a bit forced at times) and backed by brothers Vong and Yeng Chang, along with guitarist Brandon Pierce, One Sun One Moon crafts some catchy hooks. For the most part, the music is strong — particularly the thoroughly danceable title track and "Speedracer," which has a section that recalls the Cure's "Love Song."
