Moon King

Daniel Benjamin and Maddy Wilde, the duo behind shoegaze outfit Moon King, have long held relationships with many like-minded bands–such as Grimes, Austra, and Doldrums–but they come at their music from a slightly different perspective.  Focusing on influences from dream pop icons Cocteau Twins and dark jangle titans The Jesus and Mary Chain, Moon King layer complex melodies beneath waves of distortion and fuzzed-out guitar.  Listen to the newest single “Appel” from an upcoming EP below.  Also check out some fairly extensive tour dates below the stream.
