Summer Moon (ft. Nikolai Fraiture of The Strokes, Stephen Perkins of Jane’s Addiction, Camila Grey of Uh Huh Her and Noah Harmon of Airborne Toxic Event) have shared their new single, ‘Happenin’’, the second release and opening track from their upcoming debut album, With You Tonight, which will be released Feb 24.
The track has a pounding energy to it, like a subway train at 3am, it meticulously and automatically dispenses a feeling of cool and underlying menace. Filled with a shuddering chill and an unnerving movement, it feels akin to The Strokes work but not restricted to it.
Nikolai says about the track, “When we play live we always start with this song, so it made sense that it was the opening track on the album. Drum and bass are locked in under a chaotic, thumping arpeggiated key part. It’s a good entry point into the other songs. Sonically, it’s a gateway drug to the rest of the album.”
‘Happenin’’ and the first single and title track off the album ‘With You Tonight’ are both out now on all digital retailers.
