It seems that you can’t keep a good band down. After some time away, LA three piece Moaning is back with a more post-punk driven sound. On their new single “Ego” they take you down that path and gear you up for their newly announced album Uneasy Laughter set for release in March.
The song has plenty of power to it. Between the snappy drums and the pedal heavy guitars, the bass mixes perfectly with the synths and dissonant vocals. The lack of emotion in the vocals offers a stripped back energy while the drums snap like twigs underneath the hook filled melody. The verse alone should draw you in while the chorus keeps the track in your head. The video works perfectly with the song while the world occurs around the band as if they aren’t even present.
The video for “Ego” can be seen above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all streaming sites and Uneasy Laughter is ready to be preordered directly from Sub Pop ahead of its March 20 release. Moaning is on tour starting February 13 at The Griffin in Los Angeles, CA until May 07 at The Regent Theater in Los Angeles, CA. The band’s complete tour schedule is located here.
