Venus and the Moon are Frally Hynes and Rain Phoenix, a collaborative intersection that cuts a unique genre: Galactic Country. The Los Angeles-based duo released their debut 7-inch featuring singles “Hungry Ghost” and “Albatross” (with Rufus Wainwright and Chris Stills) and toured internationally with Cat Power in 2015. Brother, Son – to be released via Mother May I Records on July 15, 2016 – is their first album release. Recorded on a tascam 4-track cassette record that Rain’s older brother River gave to her as a teenager, Brother, Son was produced by Rain Phoenix and mixed by Dave Way.
“Our record Brother, Son recognizes the bonds we share with our brothers, fathers and past and present paramours. We made a conscious decision to expand upon the feminine origin of the band’s concept to create a new album honoring the great men in our lives.” – Venus and the Moon, June 2016
