Following the release of their debut EP, MOON ALTAR present ‘The Pact’ - a belated EP launch performance with special guests TWIN KINGS and more TBA. The event will showcase their new music with original projection art, ambient soundscape, an installation by artist Clare Holdstock and many more surprises..
MOON ALTAR show the first instinctive collaboration between front woman, Lucy Powell, and Finland X Orkney Island multi instrumentalist duo Tiia Kukkoken and Kevin M Johnston (previously ‘I Touched The Undertow’). The overall sound can be described as brooding pop with soft haunting peaks, and the songs are equally structured around melody and instrumental with a mix of live and digital soundscapes. The flow of the EP is very cyclical and tells a story full of metaphors and symbols surrounding themes of existence, natural disaster and female intuition.
“Venture to the underside of the ancient moon where natural disaster and debris flow through the golden forest, and the underbelly of womankind exists. The trials and tribulations of failed witches find resolution in knowing that everything is all part of an ancient natural pact- an automany. A pact which once began and will never cease to exist. A mother gives birth to a child. Hail, to the moon!.” – MOON ALTAR
