German seven-piece share the final single from their incoming self-titled debut album, due for release this Friday
With their self-titled debut album due out this Friday, Leipzig group seven Flying Moon In Space are today sharing a video for the final single ahead of the album’s release, ‘Next Life’. Whilst the early tastes of the album have dealt in a mix of sublime motorik psychedelia (‘The Observer’), industrial-tinged drone (‘Ardor’) and club-ready 4/4 experimentalism (‘Faces’), the latest single ‘Next Life’ is a piece of mesmerising, reverb-soaked dream pop. You can pre-order the album on vinyl, CD and tape here and stream the 'Next Life' video below.
Replete with ethereal atmospherics, jangly guitars and echo-soaked vocals, ‘Next Life’ is a piece of meandering beauty. Flying Moon In Space says of the song: “Often the loss of a loved one can present phantasmagorical ways to mourn them. Fanciful questions become silver-lined with an intangible hope that you’ll be united again in another life, where all is well and at peace - until reality dawns with a deep sigh. ‘Next Life’ is about having time for one last goodbye, in the hope that maybe they can hear us.”
‘Flying Moon In Space’ is an album born out of this experimental live approach more than anything else. Typically performing with four guitars, bass, drums and vocals, like the incoming album itself, their shows are characterised by hypnotic motorik beats, orchestral walls of reverb and unbound energy: “We gain our main influences during experimenting live with different rhythms, layers of sounds and other textures. The energy that comes up playing live with that amount of people takes our perception of music to another dimension. We developed the whole album during our live shows in 2019 so they really capture a certain moment for the band.”
