Joni in the Moon releases video for new single ‘War and Porn’

By on July 20, 2015

Joni In The MoonJoni In The Moon’s mesmerising aural flights have been turning heads skywards, with multiple songs nominated for WAM Song Of The Year awards, triple j kudos rolling in and strong community radio airplay around Australia. Yet their upcoming single War & Porn is set to spin them into an interstellar orbit, stargazing siblings Joni and Josh Hogan’s otherworldly take on folktronica and world beats moving in a more heavy synth/electro pop direction, yet with a heavenly dose of experimentation to keep things uniquely ‘The Moon’s. 

Whilst based in Perth, it’s easy to get lost in Joni In The Moon’s infinitely layered universe and wonder what planet they’re from. War & Porn’s evolution in sound is also matched by more politically and socially charged directions than previous work. As Joni explains, “War & Porn is my reaction to how awful it feels watching the news and feeling powerless to help. It’s about first-world problem guilt, and the personal battle I go through comparing my own white privilege against global atrocities. It’s the issue I have with a western media saturated with sex and violence, and how that infects the minds of our youths who then grow up to perpetrate such things.

”Recorded at Damaru Studio and mixed and mastered at Crank by Lee Buddle (KUČKA, The Merindas, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu), the single will be sure to see further diversifying comparisons, already of which Tuung, Björk, Sarah Blasko, Flying Lotus, London Grammar, Florence & The Machine and Feist have been made.

Catch the magic when War & Porn sees the band taking new lunar leaps forward, signalling the first signs of intricate life off their upcoming sophomore album…

“A beauty. Joni’s voice is full of power and its own personality while all around it spins this intriguing sorta-freak-folk track that seems to be forever swelling upwards. Now I know why this project has such big wraps from other musicians.” – Dave Ruby Howe, triple j

“Stunning vocals… mind blowing… fantastic.” – The Music
