There’s something easy and familiar with Earth Moon Earth‘s debut single New Mourning; it’s the unhurried pace and laid-back beats, the soft electronic piano riff, the languid bassline and Gabba Evaro’s slightly detached vocals conjuring an overall late-night, smoky, trip-hop vibe that keeps you going back for listen after listen.

Hailing from the California high desert, with strong roots in the City of Angels, sound experimentalists Earth Moon Earth release their self-titled debut album in May via Gatos Trail Records. Having started out as an experimental live collective, Earth Moon Earth have evolved rapidly, supporting Morcheeba in 2016 and following that up with several high profile festival slots.

First single New Mourning is synth heavy and ethereal, blending elements of electronic, space and psychedelic rock. Dan Joeright‘s ritualistic drum rhythms, Be Hussey‘s rich bass and Esteban Chavez‘s melodic synth sounds create a cinematic landscape for Gabba’s smoky vocals to explore. Underpinning this hazy blend is Bob Villwock‘s simple and steady electronic piano refrain adding a light and airy touch to a track that could become bogged down in the dense layers of atmospherics.

Earth Moon Earth is out May 18 on Gatos Trail Records.
