Isle of Man post punk/synthwave/darwave band Mark E Moon have unleashed their new single “Stay“.
The track is taken from their upcoming album ‘Resist‘, due to be released on March 3 through Cold Transmission. Pre-order your copy here.
Mark E Moon came together as a working project in the Autumn of 2018 and is the band name of Mark Sayle and Phil Reynolds. They play dystopian post punk/wave music, gothic rock and even some dark synth pop. Vocally, Mark E Moon has drawn comparisons with Andrew Eldritch and James Ray.
Joy Division, The Sisters of Mercy, The Chameleons, late 70s and early 80s electro: this type of music would become grist for the mill of Mark E Moon (big synths, dark basslines and darker lyrics).
Speaking about the record, they said:
“Resist is a work of love, loss and the mental anguish derived thereof. In it we enter the twilight worlds of lovelorn protagonists, fighting to come to terms with existential wants and needs. We bare witness to the dark and sorrowful, the piteously deluded and the tentatively hopeful in a shadow realm of hopelessness. These lyrical themes form a dark counterpoint to the war siren synths, soaring, yet tortured, vocals and beats that drive harder and colder than an Arctic winter.“
