New Moaning Single is Energized Post Punk at its Best


Post Punk has become the new hip genre, or at least it seems that way. With a slew of new acts coming from all over, a lot of these bands are taking the genre to new places. Los Angeles trio Moaning is close to dropping their new album Uneasy Laughing. With several songs out already and a tour that begins in the middle of March, their new single “Make It Stop” is their best pre-release single so far.

Steeped in post punk structure, the song has a quicker stride than you may be used to. With harsher riffs and an upbeat tone, the darkness in the vocals stays with you as soon as you hear them. Dissonant at times, the song echoes before the chorus comes in and things pick up to the point that you’ll repeat the words after they play once. The video, has the lyrics on pieces of collage created by the band themselves.

“Make It Stop” is available to stream on all platforms. The lyric video can be viewed above or on YouTube. Uneasy Laughter is ready fro preorder directly from Sub Pop Records ahead of its March 20 release. Moaning is on tour March 16 at Mohawk in Austin, TX until May 07 at Regent Theater in Los Angeles, CA on May 07. The band’s complete tour dates can be accessed here
