Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons return with spellbinding new track ‘Five Moons’ ft Chela
Damian Lazarus is nothing short of extraordinary. From his groundbreaking Day Zero party series in Tulum’s jungles, to his Get Lost mini-festival in Miami, to globe-trotting DJ sets, or his genre-defying Crosstown Rebels label, it’s clear Lazarus possesses a distinctly distinguished drive.
Though it is perhaps his live band project, The Ancient Moons, that is his most adventurous and ambitious project to date. In 2015, he delivered the acclaimed album A Message From The Other Side and toured with Roisin Murphy, playing iconic stages around the world, where his electronic production, added live instrumentation, and vocals opened new sonic doorways he’s kept one foot in since. Now, Lazarus & The Ancient Moons have released their new single, “Five Moons,” featuring the Australian punk vocalist Chela.
Though it commences with minimum intricacy, “Five Moons” steadily progresses into a suspense-ridden, synth-layered bassline. As Chela’s vocals lead listeners down the rabbit hole, Lazarus coalesces her airy tone, and the spellbinding affect of “Five Moons” washes over its listeners, echoing sentiments of the ’70s and embodying dance music’s very own “White Rabbit” moment, if you will.
