‘A LITTLE TOUCH OF GRAVITY‘
(‘MOONWALKS’ 7″ – GREENWAY RECORDS)
Moonwalks craft an enigmatic identity that cements itself within a juncture of ambiguous experimentation and impactful constitutions. ‘A Little Touch of Gravity‘ – a careering A-side from their new 7″ with Greenway Records – is a distinctive take on their colourful appreciation for the idiosyncratic. The group, a trio from Detroit, evoke the sort of enchanting obscurities that are built within the soundscapes of vivid rhythms and textures, burning upon their return to earth as the clarity between reality and illusions blurs, the suborbital nature of their music alluring and perceptible.
Shrouded in the distortion of a thinly veiled yet momentously driven hook, Moonwalks lose themselves within the craft – the pendulum of rhythms swinging as the mountainous lead tears through the heat. The vocal is detached, an ardent voice caught within the open space and all the more enveloping for it, catching the looming dissonance that hangs heavy across the record. The trio bask in creating something with depth in its character but that is also concise in its captivity.
