THE MOONLANDINGZ With Lipstick Murder Ballad ‘THE STRANGLE OF ANNA’…

Sensitive moments for the laziest day of the week…

Last year Sheffield‘s outsiders collective THE MOONLANDINGZ led by Fat White Family frontman Lias Kaci Saoudi released their buzzing electro pop rock debut LP Interplanetary Class Classics. One of the most striking tracks on the record is the Nick Cave-like murder ballad THE STRANGLE OF ANNA featuring the wonderful Rebecca Lucy Taylor. Sit back, relax, pretend you’re Lou Reed, have yourself an egg and some lipstick to play with…

I made you listen to Sunday morning
You spread it out across the parquet flooring
Let it rain
Let it rain
Let it rain till it’s pouring
Till the sun shines brown

I’m sick of sucking on
The smoke of the past
But you know my hands are ties
And stuck fast

The Strangle of Anna’s got me unwell
The Strangle of Anna’s got me unwell
The Strangle of Anna’s c’est la vie ma belle

You think you’re Lou Reed but you’re never trending
Hashtag my arsehole to your cliched ending
It’s all the same, all the same
It’s all the same that you’re sending
Can’t put a dead dog down

No longer smoking on
The smoke of the past
Now my hands are untied
At last

Fresh electrifying impulses for your ears…

THE MOONLANDINGZ are the semi-fictional psych-pop group put together by Sheffield’s practical electronics wizards and analogue taxidermists, called The Eccentronic Research Council (Adrian Flanagan and Dean Honer) and Fat White Family‘s outlaws Lias Saoudi and Saul Adamczewski. Their debut album ‘Interplanetary Class Classics’ will be released on March 24th through Chimera Music. After sharing psych disco stomper Black Hanz some months ago here’s another, surprisingly melancholic, new track titled THE STRANGLE OF ANNA featuring Rebecca Taylor from Slow Club in a duet with Johnny Rocket (Lias).

“A warm and tender pop duet. The song is all set to warm the nation’s hearts during this cold and politically deranged winter of discontent and will almost definitely set those in chains free… it’s a record about liberation, finding a voice and standing up” says a press message.

Take your lover close to your chest. Start the music, dance softly and hope both for the best, for a future without idiotic & dangerous world leaders. Love each other genuinely before it’s too late. Here’s the perfect song to get you going. Sounds a bit like Lou Reed singing with Hope Sandoval on a Sunday Morning
