They Watch Us From The Moon reveal video for ‘On The Fields of The Moon’
New album ’Cosmic Chronicles: Act 1, The Ascension’ released 12th May (New Heavy Sounds)
With touchdown imminent for ’Cosmic Chronicles: Act 1, The Ascension’ their debut album on May 12th, Kansas’ cosmic doom crew They Watch Us From The Moon are ready to fire off another track from it.
‘On The Fields Of The Moon’ is the opening number and pretty much nails the band’s unique sound and what they’re about. Cosmic space opera with heavy layered riffs ’n’ textures. Plus the fabulously melodic dual vocal harmonies of Luna Nemesis and Nova 10101001, which really take their sound to another level.
Think ABBA ‘with riffs’. It sums up the scope of their debut perfectly.
The band has this to say about the track.
’On The Fields Of The Moon’ is an epic ditty about the tide of an intergalactic battle turning against our human heroes. A war march with soaring vocal harmonies reminiscent of Alice In Chains/ABBA/OTTN-era Def Leppard.
Plus, there is a trippy and fittingly space age new video to go with it. 50’s sci-fi movies mixed with glam rock and an 80’s vibe in this psychedelic tale of alien abduction. All clashing colours and ‘Liquid Len’ (of Hawkwind fame) lightshow visuals, one can imagine that this lot are quite something to see live.
And, as with all NHS releases, the album is available in a limited edition deluxe vinyl package. Full colour printed outer and inner sleeve, housing an appropriately cosmic, blue and purple swirl disc. Also comes as a limited edition digipack CD and digital download via the usual suspects.
