L.A. desert rock duo MOON release their new EP Shine on 21st May and we’re delighted to bring you a first look at the video for its title track on Joyzine today.
Propelled along by an infectious foot-stomping, hand-clapping rhythm, wailing guitars and Chelsea Dawn’s soaring vocal, it’s a great introduction to the pair’s slick mixture of vintage and modern styles which draws on influences from Nina Simone and Curtis Mayfield to Bjork and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Recorded at Victory Road Studio in Canyon Hills, California and mixed and produced by the band, this is a proper DIY enterprise but doesn’t cut corners on big production values.
Guitarist and keyboard player Dan Silver summarised the track, “It offers a socially responsible message with a high energy smathering of desert guitars, screaming keyboards, brass, heavy-handed drumming, marching percussion and even a set of corn-hole boards. It’s designed to be an anthem for the masses that begs the question “what makes you shine?”.
