Listening to Sandmoon playing tunes from their latest EP, "#InTheEnd," I get the feeling the indie-pop band is trying to be out-of-the-box.Sandmoon are special and quirky, which may be what's drawn the crowd of all ages and sizes to this performance at Station – the Jisr al-Wati furniture factory-turned-multipurpose venue. The band's performance seems unrehearsed and organic, as all their sounds blend together wonderfully.Since Arslanian created the band in 2010, collaborators have come and gone. With different musicians surrounding her, the singer-songwriter is a bit like reflective beach sand upon which an ever-changing moon is reflected – hence the band's name "Sandmoon". The images are hypnotizing, haunting in the same way as the music.Before the performance began, the atmosphere was laid back, with people lying before the stage on beanbag chairs, drinking and enjoying DJ Serge Yared's eclectic set of tunes.Each song on the record creates a different mood and evokes a different emotion.
