“Unerring fidelity, driven by pulsing drone-rock riffs, hypnotically repetitive drumming and mantra-like vocals” – **** Financial Times
“Triumphant” – Loud & Quiet
“Hits your bliss button” – 8/10, NME
 “A band pushing at boundaries” – **** Shindig
“‘Slow Down Low’ is a ferocious bit of cosmic rock’n’roll that’s itching to break loose” – Dummy
“Unhinged psychedelia with a rare sense of kinetics” – Clash
“Animal’, a track appropriately titled given the inhuman sound the trio have produced” – DIY 

Following their recently released 3rd studio album ‘Shadow of the Sun’ on Sacred Bones last month, Moon Duo kick off their European tour & share a new video for single ‘Slow Down Low’.

The band, now a trio with live drummer John Jeffrey, kicked off their European run with sold out shows in Manchester & Brighton last week and return to our shores on April 27th to hit up venues across the UK & Ireland.

The heady black & white clip for ‘Slow Down Low’ was directed by & stars Sacred Bones label mate Domingo Garcia Huidobro of Chilean group Föllakzoid, who also recently released their album ‘III’.

Of the video Huidobro says: “A black mirror monolith articulates an inter-dimensional pathway between present time and an alternate slowed down present in a teenage night out in Buenos Aires. The video was shot with digital cameras and then filtered with a analogue VHS table.” 

Shadow of the Sun was written entirely during an evolving phase for Moon Duo. It was a rare and uneasy rest period, devoid of the constant adrenaline of performing live and the stimulation of traveling through endless moving landscapes. This offered Moon Duo a new space to reflect on all of these previous experiences and cradle them while cultivating the album in the unfamiliar environment of a new dwelling; a dark Portland basement. It was from this stir-crazy fire that Shadow of the Sun was forged.
