Ukrainian multi-instrumentalist and Somali Yacht Club frontman Ihor Pryshliak aka SUPER PINK MOON teams up with Echoes & Dust to present his new single "FearKnight" exclusively today. The song is taken from his upcoming new album "Inertia", due out November 17th on all streaming services.
Super Pink Moon was created in 2019 as a solo project of Somali Yacht Club guitarist and vocalist Ihor Pryshliak in Lviv, Ukraine. Gracefully interweaving post-rock, shoegaze and indie rock, his sophomore album "IRON RAIN" (2022) depicted the angst and emotional turmoil of having to make it through the day when surrounded by chaos, as it was entirely written, recorded and released amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine. A logical sequel to "IRON RAIN", new album "Inertia" offers shape-shifting dynamics, heady riffs and airy, melancholic vocals while implicitly dealing with sensitive and politically charged topics. With its subtle blend of post-metal, post-rock, shoegaze and electronic-tinged soundscapes, this genre-bending gem should please fans of Deftones, Oathbreaker, Quicksand, Jesu, Godflesh, Elder, Meshuggah, Boards of Canada, Massive Attack, Bicep.
About the album, Ihor Pryshliak says: "This new album is about inertia – it’s when a part of your life continues to move along the previous trajectory until the collision. It’s convenient and reliable, there are no risks, you just keep moving in the same direction. The problem with inertia is low flexibility. For example, to turn a large ship, a lot of effort is needed. As a result, we take a long time to adapt to new abrupt changes. The inertia of my life is actually the Super Pink Moon project. At the moment it has lost its relevance, but purely out of inertia, I finished it and am releasing it as it is. From a musical point of view, it’s just home experiments, as always a mixture of all styles. Some tracks have more electronics, some less. I would love it to be listened to not as background music, but how can I force anyone, right?"
"Inertia" will be self-released on all digital streaming platforms on November 17th, 2023. It was mixed and mastered by Jaro Sound, with an artwork courtesy of Dasha Pliska.
