Brighton’s indie psych collective Moon Attendant emerge to release their debut LP ‘One Last Summer’ and today XS Noize is pleased to exclusively premiere ‘Hot Power’ from the album.
A new band featuring old friends. Brothers from critically acclaimed psych-space rock group Black Hearted Brother. Blewett swaps bass duties for vocals and electric guitar and other brother Holton once again provides synths & production. Label boss and guest Neil Halstead also wires up his pedalboard and crashes some signature Slowdive sound-waves into this record. The line up is completed by Big Potato mainstay McCutcheon (Slowdive/ Mojave 3) on percussion & guitarist and songwriter Molyneux.
Moon Attendant’s psychedelic grunge-pop debut LP wields deranged analogue synths within a cosy jacket of fuzzy guitars and over-saturated sonics. Imagine if Colin Blunstone & Klaus Schulze had released Pebbles-esque garage. Words & production walk a starry-eyed tightrope between childish endeavour and mature lamentation. Songs about Death, Power, Drugs and Despair have never felt so pop!
“The epic album version of Hot Power shows Moon Attendant at their grungy, furious, psych, satirical brink. Comfort in the power of others, death of others Sci-Fi Neil Youngers, big ideas we have no idea how to deal. “Only a short walk to the ticket shop to mend the mild me”
