Franco-American outfit JOON MOON are releasing their new single "Tiger" as part of a three-song EP today, Friday, June 16 on Kwaidan/Le Plan Recordings.    "Tiger"made its premiere today via BlackBook.

The Tiger EP comes after the release of two critically acclaimed EP's--Chessand Call Me (both have been heavily supported by LA tastemaker station KCRW)--and serves as another foreshadowing into their upcoming album MOONSHINE CORNER, due out September 23.  Also included is a live version of fan-favorite "Call Me," a nostalgic song coined by Australian songwriter Phoebe Killdeer (Fade Out Lines), and a radio edit of "Tiger."

 

JOON MOON is the of house producer and Nouvelle Vague collaborator Julien Decoret, drummer Raphael Chassin (Tete, Vanessa Paradis) and American expat and singer extraordinaire Krystle Warren, who previously worked with Hercules & Love Affair. Their music is for fans of Amy Winehouse, Aloe Blacc, Bill Withers and Erykah Badu.

 

As with their previous offerings, JOON MOON's commitment to their retro aesthetic is no afterthought. Recorded in their custom designed Studio 237 in Paris, the production relies heavily on vintage instruments such as the Radio King, a 40's battery that has become a sought after collecting piece, or the Hofner 1968 bass that Paul McCartney made famous. 

 

On the second chorus of the title track which takes its inspiration from the poem "The Tyger" by William Blake (http://www.shmoop.com/tyger/poem-text.html), the unique sounds of the Cristal Baschet organ can be heard supporting Krystle Warren's dramatic interpretation. This use of old sounds and recording techniques gives JOON MOON's music a sense of timelessness, and is the basis from which the band decides to move forward, mixing in more modern influences such as a sax line that could have been written by Steve Reich or the repetitive nature of their song writing which espouses the codes of dance music.

 

With "Tiger," the band's social concerns are starting to come forward. A timely piece from a Franco-American band about the need to question authority and the power structure of society, "Tiger" sees its tension build up like an ominous populist and turns into defiance--art and love combining in a movement towards emancipation.  

 

Look for JOON MOON to venture stateside later this fall around the release of Moonshine Corner.  More information to come soon.
