I’m VERY super into the visually spectacular video that we’re premiering today, you guys! It’s for a great track called “Moonlight” by Brooklyn’s own Earthquake Lights, which is off their forthcoming debut full-length, Distress Signals, set to drop in April.
Here’s what band leader Myles Rodenhouse has to say about it:
“The theme for our new single ‘Moonlight’ is one of separation. It’s about trying to find someone after being lost somewhere unforgiving, like pushing through the woods after an avalanche to find your lost companion. We took that theme to my great friend Minu Park and came up with the concept for the music video. Two sisters are split up while exploring in the woods; one focused on the remnants of forgotten life she finds there while the other is seduced away by a will-o’-the-wisp. We felt that the locations fit the mood of the piece, and drawing from the mythology of the will-o’-the-wisp was a perfect way to capture something truly horrifying, yet understated, cunning, and clever. That also really fit the vibe of the overall theme of Earthquake Lights – an uncontrollable natural phenomenon that can’t be explained. The strings, which we tracked at Abbey Road, are the perfect siren song to call Connie to the will-o’-the-wisp and her eventual end in ‘Moonlight.’ Hope you dig it!”
I guarantee there’s no way you won’t dig it! So go ahead and check it out here:
