Los Angeles Post Punk trio Moaning is readying their new album Uneasy Laughter due in late March. With plenty of tour dates to support the album including a run at SXSW, they’ve released an animated lyric video for their new single “Fall In Love.” What you immediately take away, is that it pairs perfectly with the dark themes of the song itself.
There’s a hint of light within the dark tone of the song. Almost in an Ian Curtis like fashion, the vocals have a deadpan delivery without sounding too much like the former singer. Instead, the track takes its own path, heading further into the trenches of post punk and keeping your ears with its intriguing tone. The video has just as many twists, mixed with lyrics and an animated look that keeps you watching just as the music keeps you listening.
The video can be seen above or on YouTube. Uneasy Laughter is ready to be preordered directly from Sub Pop Records on multiple formats ahead of its March 20 release. Moaning is on tour beginning April 07 at Slim’s in San Francisco, CA until May 07 at Regent Theater in Los Angeles, CA. Their entire tour dates can be accessed here.
