Moon Duo announce new album Occult Architecture Vol. 1, share lead single

Mystical, psychedelic Moon Duo announced the release of their new album, Occult Architecture Vol. 1, out February 3 via Sacred Bones. Stream the album’s debut single, “Cold Fear,” below.

The two-part album was recorded in Portland, Oregon, Moon Duo’s home. Drawing on influences from occult literature, it is among the band’s darker efforts. A press release pus it this way: Occult Architecture “reflects the harmonious duality of these light and dark energies through the Chinese theory of Yin and Yang. In Chinese, Yin means ‘the shady side of the hill’ and is associated with the feminine, darkness, night, earth.”

The concept may be ambitious, but the textured, dark-to-light soundscape of “Cold Fear” bodes well.

Moon Duo has also announced tour dates in support of the album. Check out “Cold Fear” and a list of those dates below.
