Belgian shoegaze band Newmoon have revealed their new single “Eternal Fall” and its accompanying visuals.
The track is taken from their upcoming album “Temporary Light,” due to be released on March 22, 2024 via PIAS Recordings (EU) and Quiet Panic (US). Pre-order your copy here.
Known for their dreamy melodies, atmospheric soundscapes, and emotive lyrics, Newmoon’s new album marks the next step in their musical evolution, showcasing their growth as a band and their dedication to creating transformative music.
With two acclaimed albums and a 7” EP already under their belt, the band continues to create a world where shoegaze, post punk and alternative rock meet.
Of “Eternal Fall“, vocalist Bert Cannaerts says, “While writing we knew we wanted to incorporate some new elements. We all have a love for less traditional music and have always looked at ways to introduce some of the elements into our own songs. “Eternal Fall” is the result of that. Working on this song was very refreshing for us. I remember referencing stuff like Massive Attack and loads of ambient music while writing it. Definitely a song that feels very different yet familiar at the same time for us.”
“Temporary Light” weaves a sonic tapestry that harks back to the band’s roots, yet retains a fresh approach that keeps their music alluring. Blending airy vocals with lush guitars, Newmoon creates an immersive sound that sweeps listeners off their feet into a striking world that feels distant yet familiar at the same time.
For the album, the band enlisted engineer and producer Thomas Valkiers. Additionally, Simon Scott of Slowdive, renowned as one of the key people within the shoegazing genre, is responsible for mastering, truly elevating the sound of “Temporary Light”.
