perhaps you’ve come across accolades for pat moon on this website before; if so, allow us to indulge a bit. 2016’s don’t hide from the light is a timeless debut, eight songs of spectral, ambient pop that provide a window into kate davis’ synth-driven aural dreamscape. the portland-based musician announced a follow-up album, romantic era, earlier this spring, a highly-anticipated release that will arrive may 18th.
in contrast to the murky, haunting lead single “medieval spells” lies a more crystalline offering from romantic era, “spiraling.” crystalline is, of course, a relative term; in the realm of pat moon, vocals will always stack to the stratosphere, a hazy choir that smears into similar synth timbres.
“spiraling,” with its shuffling percussion and glassy arpeggiations, is quintessential pat moon, the project in its finest form. the track’s back half unravels ever so slightly and slowly, embodying its title while peeling back outer layers to expose an even more pensive core. “spiraling” premieres today, right here on the dimestore. get lost in the excellent new track below.
