paris_monster Juxtaposes the Unexpected With "Moles" (premiere)
Soul, noise, pop, and more hover around each other in paris_monster's "Moles", a song that traverses a multitude of distances while blending it all seamlessly.
paris_monster combines unexpected elements in its sound, fusions of garage rock and soul come together with the aggression of noise while the soothing sounds of synthesized pop hover somewhere in the distance. This is all on display via the duo's latest track, "Moles", which arrives ahead of the album Lamplight, due by early 2019.
The artiness and artfulness of "Moles" suggests that paris_monster is capable of subverting our notions about popular music in the post-postmodern era. Contemporary musical machinery provides the backbone of the song as tales of bygone eras and modern life swirl together, juxtaposing images of the primitive and the return to the primitive, the sparseness of the past and the inevitable scarcities visited upon us in the future.
