by Two Moons
We’ve returned after almost three years. With an album that drives us back to the origins, to that EP (“The first moon”) from where everything had started. Italian in its provenance but with an original British twist, “The first Moon” earned us the reputation of champions of a “new New Wave”.
Listen to the album while reading the text.
Since looking at the cover we chose, a painting by Lucio Fontana (courtesy of the Lucio Fontana Foundation), “Over” appears as a dreamy, wishful album, inspired by the hope of a sense of “beyond” nowadays’ decadence. The lyrics conjure up a direct connection to reality, with messages that can be pretty straightforward as well as open to different interpretations (a distinguishing feature of Two Moons). The last effort by Two Moons is a sonic trip where the rhythm is marked by electronic ballads with a definite “new wave-y” and shoegaze attitude.
Two moons is a musical project founded in 2009 from an idea of Emilio Mucciga, Joseph Rips Asanda, Iacopo Palax, and Angelo Argento. We were all active musicians for a very long time with the joint intentions and aim to set up a very ambitious and important musical project.
Two artistic souls in one band: one dark, the other introspective, linked to the typical sound of the 1980’s darkwave (Joy Division, Bauhaus ecc.) and the magnetic, shamanic and solar of modern electronic sound.
The Two Moons offer acid and visionary atmospheres, representations of fragile post-industrial poetry, an imperious psychedelic-pop without any heavy individualism. Our musical production is a journey not told but illustrated, does not describe but represents an experimental soul that reveals a fascinating uneasiness.
