Featuring members of Mooncreatures, Tigercats and Grubs, London dream-poppers Ski Saigon are kicking off 2018 by sharing a brand new track.
Following on from last year’s jangly ‘Iran Tourist Dream’, ‘Moon Enemy’ is a languid, woozy cut from the group, filled with hazy, lilting guitar licks, reverberating, dreamlike vocals and splashes of vintage synths.
Songwriter Rhys Griffiths said of the track: “Lots of songs are about the moon, and this is another one of them. But instead of thinking about how beautiful the moon is, it imagines how frustrating a full moon might be if you want darkness and to stay hidden in it, a predicament that has probably befallen lots of people throughout history”.
The track features as part of a new compilation from Leeds’ Bowl Cut label, ‘Dead Trim’. The compilation will also feature tracks from Porridge Radio, Charmpit, Neurotic Fiction and more.
