The group describes their aesthetic as rock with alternative, funk, rap, 'stoner' and glam influences. The band name was coined by member Victoria who is half Danish - after pitching some Danish words to the team they agreed on Måneskin translating to 'moonshine'.

Gaining significant local notoriety with their participation in the eleventh edition of X-Factor Italy where they eventually claimed runner up - their debut album 'Il ballo della vita' stormed to #1, going platinum three times over in 2018.
