“Neon Lights” is taken from Moon King‘s new album Voice Of Lovers to be released on April 2 via Arbutus Records.
A few years ago, Toronto-born singer and producer Daniel Benjamin turned his shoegaze music project Moon King into a lo-fi dance and disco outlet. It’s actually with “In & Out”, his infectious debut single on Arbutus, that the artist caught our attention back in 2017.
For his forthcoming album, Voice Of Lovers, Moon King is still thirsting for experimentation and discovery. About the inspirations of this new project, he detailed:
The artist has already unveiled the first single “Neon Lights” which features Detroit synth-pop singer Vespre. Where “In & Out” was an obvious dancefloor filler, this new offering sounds more like a late night tune. A track that a DJ would drop just before the lights turn back or that you could actually play at home, alone. “Neon Lights” also comes with a Stacie Ant‘s SIMS-like and 80s-inspired animated video that you can watch below.
