Summer Moon have dropped the latest track from their upcoming debut album With You Tonight, titled ‘Happenin”.
‘Happenin” was produced by Brad Bell (Arcade Fire, The War On Drugs), and was mostly written by Nikolai Fraiture, in an unhurried fashion which mirrors the band’s laissez faire ethos and evolving line-up.
You may find the band a bit familiar looking. The Strokes’ bassist Nikolai Fraiture fronts the group, and is also joined by Jane’s Addiction’s Stephen Perkins, Uh Huh Her’s Camila Grey and The Airborne Toxic Event’s Noah Harmon.
Speaking about ‘Happenin”, Nikolai said: ‘When we play live we always start with this song, so it made sense that it was the opening track on the album. Drum and bass are locked in under a chaotic, thumping arpeggiated key part. It’s a good entry point in to the other songs. Sonically, it’s a gateway drug to the rest of the album’.
Summer Moon’s debut album With You Tonight is due to be released on February 24 via DTF Records/Membran. ‘Happenin” and title track ‘With You Tonight’ are both out now digitially.
