Toronto, Canada-based gaze/kraut/pop/rock/post-punk noisemakers Moon King is dropping their first proper album “Secret Life” via Last Gang Records on April 14.    Hell.. I’ll file them under indie, these guys are impossible to stuff into a specific genre..  They have definitely developed a wall of noise to their sound, and it often takes you on a repetative path, yet at it’s core there are some really great, melodic pop/rock tunes delivered with an intense and punkish attitude.

The core of the group consists of Daniel Benjamin and Maddie Wilde, while they expand to a 4 piece playing live. I was lucky enough to catch these guys here in Oslo back in February, and they really pack a fullblown punch on-stage! Moon King will be touring US/UK/EU and Canada from May to June, on various occations playing alongside Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Tops and Doldrums . I seriously recommend you mark your schedule for when they’re around your parts!

Check out the tracks “Apocalypse” and “Roswell” underneath, and be sure to dive into the new live video featuring both tracks! It’s a real trip!

The whole album is currently streaming over at The Fader, so go check it out HERE
