We fell hard for the iconoclastic, nay provocative art pop of Arthur Moon (nee Lora-Faye Åshuvud) this past June. So the news of her new creative pairing with Denmark’s equally iconoclastic Oh Land was no small matter in our little corner of the world.
Curiously, the collab comes in the form of an EP, Replanting Family Tree (out September 18), which finds the former reworking tracks by the latter to startling effect. The first of these is “Salt,” sure to be on our heavy rotation list as we transition to another season of autumn. Indeed, with its electro-handclaps, jittery beats, and piercing synth-blasts, it commands…or demands nothing less than complete immersion.
It also acts as a veritable preview to an eight date U.S. mini-tour the pair will undertake, launching at Brooklyn’s Bell House September 24, and concluding at LA’s Bootleg Theater precisely one month later. Should you need an Oh Land fix even sooner, she’ll play five dates across Denmark this week.
