Due for release this Friday, 27 August, ‘Curious Moon’, the new single from Blue Mountains artist T. Wilds (aka Tania Wilds, the nom-de-plume of Tania Bowers) is a mesmerising ethereal track that seems to float on air, with Bowers’s voice an enchanting softly billowing cloud infused with an air of longing and melancholy. We are proud to premiere the track this morning with an absolutely transfixing video that manages to encapsulate the beauty and the grace of the song with a gorgeously shot, cinematic portrayal of dance, magic and movement.
‘Curious Moon’ has a dreamy hypnotising quality about it: Bowers’s voice is haunting, other wordly (with echoes of Nico) and the instrumentation (guitars by Matt Toohey and drums by Joe Dews) reflective, restrained and shimmering. Bowers says of the track:
When I was writing ‘Curious Moon’ in my kitchen one day I knew it would be a special song. I was
imagining two people on an adventure escaping from reality to a dream-like Donnie Darko film and soundscape.
It is a special song indeed.
Filmed by Jem Kjelgaard from CloudHerd Films and coloured in a sepia-tinged burnished glow, the air in the accompanying video is magical and mystical as Bowers and Toohey perform, interspersed with shots of graceful, expressive dancers in a visually entrancing atmospheric room filled with a lush, rich natural light. Moonlight dust is spread across the dancers by a child and there is a dreamy, sensual fugue throughout:
‘Curious Moon’ is out on Friday, 26 August 2021 and comes off T. Wilds’ ’10 Songs’ album which is due in October 2021, through Wally Kempton’s inimitable Cheersquad Records, which is garnering quite a roster. You can checkout here on Friday for a download of the track.
