Moon Duo have shared the latest track from their upcoming new studio album Occult Architecture Vol. 1. The track, ‘Creepin’ is the second track to be released from the Portland duo’s fourth album, due for release on February 3rd via Sacred Bones Records.
Following the release of the darkly hypnotic ‘Cold Fear’ in November, ‘Creepin’ keeps hold of those dark tones, but attacks the canvas with an added strokes of energetic cosmic rock. Listen in, below.
Led by Ripley Johnson and keyboardist Sanae Yamada, …Vol. 1 is the first part of the band’s psychedelic opus; a tribute to the Chinese theory of Yin and Yang, inspired by the occult and esoteric literature of Mary Anne Atwood, Aleister Crowley, Colin Wilson, and Manly P. Hall.
On the latest album cut, guitarist Johnson explains; “This song was inspired by the image of Death creeping up on someone (as in the gospel blues “When Death Comes Creeping in Your Room”), which is just a spooky idea. It’s about time passing and decay, but it’s also about rebirth, and something new growing out of that decay. Ashes to ashes and all that.”
Occult Architecture Vol. 1 is due out February 3rd via Sacred Bones Records. …Vol 2. is due later in 2017. You can also catch the band at the following UK dates during their 2017 European tour:
