Moon Panda is the dreamy musical project of Californian songwriter Maddy Myers and Danish guitarist Gustav Moltke. Recent single Gun now has a sublimely surreal and spooky video, directed by Buster Marker Jønsson.
The most immediate musical references you can make here and Air and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Gun shares the same duality inherent in the works of those two acts. A superficial quality of calm and control takes the listener unaware, soft tones and unhurried guitar creating an almost lullaby effect.
But like a classic thriller or drama, the suspense builds, like a Hitchcock masterclass, leaving you a bit rattled, excited, but ultimately glad you went along for a thrilling ride.
Gun is out now, streaming on Spotify and Soundcloud as well as other digital and downloading platforms. For more information on that, new music and more from Moon Panda, be sure follow them on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
