Premiere: Ski Saigon get dreamy on ‘Moon Enemy’

Ski Saigon get dreamy on ‘Moon Enemy’

The London band’s latest is a lilting, jangly number.

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.

Ski Saigon are also set to support Martha when they play at London’s Moth Club on 25th March. Tickets are on sale now
