Taken from the forthcoming self-titled debut album from Los Angeles post-punk three piece Moaning, due out on March 2nd via the legendary Sub Pop label, Artificial is a staccato, angular song, driven by the drums and given this sense of anxiety by the sourness of the guitar chords at the beginning, before the chorus -soaked in synths and anthemic in nature, drags you along with it.
The band have just released an accompanying video to the track, reminiscent of MTV’s 120 Minutes and helmed by the directorial team A Stranger. Guitarist Sean Solomon says of the shimmery visual “The video mirrors the themes of insincerity and artificiality in the song. To shoot the video we used practical effects to warp the viewers perception of what’s happening. It was appropriately shot in Los Angeles on 35mm film much like other disingenuous Hollywood productions.”
