Venturing into a fantastical world
The music of Moon King – a project by Canadian Daniel Woodhead – took a different turn when he leapt over the border to live in Hamtramck, a city within the Motor City of Detroit. Exploring the edges of shoegaze and synth-driven pop, it’s his current whereabouts – known for its DJ culture – that influenced his sound. And for the better. Woodhead, who toured as musician with Grimes and Sean Nicholas Savage, dropped a fresh album on Arbutus Records. On Voice Of Lovers, Moon King persists a sound dangling between synth pop and underground disco and proves his adaptiveness of his surroundings. Warming up your muscles to dance will be done by the Indie and Ambient (call it Indient) orders of Sergeant, a promising homegrown multi-instrumentalist.
