Moonroof is an indie pop band from Philadelphia, PA featuring Dave Kim (vocals), Dan Rendine (drums), Kevin Randolph (bass), and Francis Convery (guitar).
Founding members Dave, Dan, and Kevin met while attending Bloomsburg University, where they played open mics and other events and bonded over their love of bands like the 1975, Two Door Cinema Club, and Last Dinosaurs. After college, the band moved back to Philadelphia, adopted the name Moonroof, and began releasing music and playing shows across the Philadelphia area.
In 2018, Moonroof released the song Honey Honey, which has now earned over 1 million streams and helped garner a new audience for the band. Moonroof won a contest by Philly radio station Alt 104.5 in 2019 and received the opportunity to open up for The Lumineers, Death Cab for Cutie, Grouplove, and Phantogram at the station's 12th Birthday Show.
In 2020, Moonroof signed with Philadelphia label Free Dive Records and, in October 2021, released their debut EP Dream State. The EP debuted as the #2 alternative album and #6 album overall on Apple's top 200.
Moonroof released their first single of 2023, I’d Rather Be Alone, in January and plans to continue releasing new music and playing shows throughout the year.
