Listen to weekend ice-breaker ‘Wild Alive’ by Moondude

The music of south Lon­don group, Moon­dude, sounds like a cross between The Kooks’s ear­ly mate­r­i­al and surf-rock wan­ders Gen­gahr.

It’s chilled shoegaze, almost to the point of “easy lis­ten­ing”, but with an air of inten­tion­al detach­ment from the singer’s vocals.

Their debut sin­gle, ‘Dis­placed’, appeared online last month, and is the stuff of Sat­ur­day morn­ing dri­ves and lunchtimes spent in sub­ur­ban cafés.

Now they’ve fol­low it up with ‘Wild Alive’, an inno­cent, urgent-sound­ing col­lage of sum­mery tones that’s easy on the ears.

Have lis­ten to their lat­est track below, com­plete with an ani­mat­ed video, direct­ed by Jen­ny Wright.
