Moon Panda, the moniker under which Californian songwriter Maddy Myers and Danish guitarist Gustav Moltke collaborate – have announced a brand new single ‘Gun’ to follow their critically acclaimed debut track ‘Rabbit’ released earlier in the year. ‘Gun’ has been described by KALTBLUT as “deliciously woozy” and is out now on boutique label My Little Empire Records.
The lyrics on new track, ‘Gun’, outline the darker thoughts within “the capricious human mind”, says Myers. ‘Gun’ was produced by established engineer Tom Biller who has worked on records such as Warpaint’s The Fool and Fiona Apple’s Extraordinary Machine, to Elliott Smith’s From a Basement on a Hill, and Beck’s track Everybody’s Got to Learn Sometime from the OST of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
“To help represent the ever-changing, ever-fickle human mind we used a changing time signature – the verse is in 6/8 and the chorus switches to 4/4. It’s not incredibly noticeable but I think it disrupts the sway of the song a bit and switches you into a new rhythm,” says songwriter Myers.
