Listen To Mooncult’s New Single ‘Until We Say Never Again’

Mooncult

 

I caught the quartet Mooncult during a pre-summer night, about a year and a half ago, and they just sent me their first single, ‘Until We Say Never Again’, that they have decided to release at the same time than the video below. The band is effectively relatively new, as it was formed in 2017 by the very well-named singer and songwriter Raven Mystere, who also fronts the band. If the lineup has changed since I saw them, the vibe is the same.

The song ‘Until We Say Never Again’ floats in layers of shoegazy guitars barely dominated by Raven Mystere’s somber monochord croon, which sprawls during the chorus with a touch of Nico. With the help of Phil Cobb on lead guitar, Mark Mallory on bass and synth, and Christopher Mercado on drums, the song is a fuzzy affair, a very atmospheric piece with a melancholic tone enhanced by a dreamy synth-scape, slowly revealing a melody which brings heartfelt and emotive hooks, a bit like a Beach House song does.

Daughter of bluesman Jake LaBotz, Raven started writing songs and poems when she was only in second grade. Her first poem ‘sad’ mentions sadness being the sound of a preacher, a stranger, speaking of her loved ones.  She moved to L.A. when she was 18 and became obsessed with bands like Bauhaus, Joy Division, Siouxie and the Banshees, and the Cocteau Twins. If I can’t say I am hearing any elements of blues or goth in the new song, these influences probably found their way through the psychedelic fuzz of the guitars, and the lunar theme of the band’s moniker.

Check out the song ‘Until We Say Never Again’ below:
