Moods team up with daste. in their latest single “Moonrider,” an ode to sci-fi film where they take us into the cosmic pop sphere. Tinted with nostalgia, “Moonrider” rockets you into a bursting soundscape filled with lasering beats that bounce with each other. Stream below:

“The instrumental demo I sent to daste. was heavily influenced by sci-fi films and the idea of actually being out in space,” explained Moods. “My main focus was creating sounds that diddn’t make sense at first. But in a certain context it could work. It was a labour of complete weird bleepy chaos, using various synths just to sprinkle that around on the track as you hear now.”

daste. also added, “The demo caught our attention immediately. It had such an eccentric, sci-fi vibe. We could hear a lot of references to a mission involving the stars and the moon in Callum’s initial lyrics which gave us the idea for the focus expression ‘moonrider.’ It became about the moon and the unreachable goal of getting up there and seeing the universe together.”

“Moonrider” is out now via Kraak & Smaak’s label Boogie Angst.
