Billy Moon - I Wanna Know
Info: Hamilton, Ontario solo act Billy Moon, whose wonderfully joyous and quirky EP, That Which You Can't Throw Away, we reviewed last October, is set to bring out another extended play this spring, with the first single, 'I Wanna Know' dropping a few weeks ago with an interesting accompanying video.
What starts out as a bit of silly fun, the video for IWK develops into a macabre and unhinged Shakespearian dance with chaos. Musically, Moon serves up yet another lo-fi piece of slacker pop rock. I've always been drawn to the effects he uses on his electric guitar, it's a bluesy nonchalant punk sound which always feels slick. While the overall feel is cool and chilled, the finale to the single matches the madness of the visual, a desperate panicked crescendo, like a scream in the dark, another doozy of a song from Mr. Moon.
