A few weeks back, I grabbed “24” off a recent double single by Moonbabies for airplay on my radio show. Now the duo has announced their first new LP, to be called Wizards On The Beach, in seven years. The new LP is plush with melodic instrumentation and harmonic vocals.
Blending classic pop and dance sensibilities, Moonbabies explore a dreamy pop sound on par with fellow Swedish artists like Fredrik and Icelandic musicians like Sunbear and Sin Fang. Songs siding on more subtlety, like “Raindrops” hint of danish artists like Mew and Oh No Ono while holding onto a consistency with the overarching sound Moonbabies creates on the new LP.
Wizars On The Beach is thoroughly enjoyable, and I for one am quite excited to see Moonbabies drop the album in April 2015. Stream “Raindrops” and stream or download an mp3 of “24” via Soundcloud below:
