FOLLOWING the news that they have signed to Transgressive Records and have a debut album on the way, The Moonlandingz have unveiled a new track called ‘Black Hanz’.

Having originally been created by the Eccentronic Research Council as a narrative device for their concept album Johnny Rocket, Narcissist & Music Machine… I’m Your Biggest Fan, it seems that the band have become their own separate entity in recent times; continuing to blow people away with their avant-garde psych-rock. Consisting of two members of ERC along with Fat White Family’s Lias Saoudi and Saul Adamczewski, their unique vision stems from a refusal to adhere to genre or convention; instead choosing to open up a realm of exciting new dark and often deranged possibilities through their music that is impossible to ignore.

This new track is taken from their EP of the same name and is one of their most emphatic releases to date. With a mix of shimmering synths and vintage analogue sounds, it makes for an eccentric listen; driving forward with its imposing drums and bassline groove. A repetitive and catchy chorus sits at the centre while layers of spooky instrumentation add themselves to the mix; the underlying darkness making itself known through the appearance of deeply haunting voice that resembles Vincent Prince on ‘Thriller’. From here, the track bursts into a supernatural whirl of electronic sounds that are let off the leash in dramatic fashion; fulfilling their reputations as the purveyors of ‘psychedelic Ouija pop’.

Proving they have a lot more to offer than their semi-fictional origins suggest, The Moonlandingz show there’s a lot to be excited about when their debut album lands next year.
