Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed Moon Museum but they are out now with a new single and I want to share my thoughts about it.
Another good song by this fantastic band.
The “airy” feeling is reconfirmed. Magical music that this time, in some passages, reminded me of the compositional style of Pet Shop Boys.
A sweet but also nostalgic melody that seems to hide a secret.
Like when you open a drawer after a long time and you find some faded polaroids of past adventures. For a moment you go back to those moments with your memories and smile and cry at the same time. You Smile because you have experienced those beautiful emotions but you cry because now those moments are just memories.
Add Moon Museum’s new single to your playlists, it is worth it.
Contraptions is Moon Museum’s Single Out Now!
Ethereal and Magic!
Moon Museum began as a collaboration between Ian Zazueta and Ryan Joseph who knew each other from the small, close-knit San Francisco music scene. They hadn’t collaborated previously but were brought together by shared influences including Slowdive, Chameleons, and Doves.
The pair reached out to Olivia Barchard with some early demos. Olivia was working on material at the time and was struck by the sonic similarities in style. After writing a few songs exploring female and male vocal counterpoints, they recruited their good friend and accomplished drummer, Aaron Hazen.
