Willy Moon Releases New Single 'Yeah Yeah'
Charismatic 23-year old Willy Moon, who recently signed with Island Records in the UK and Cherrytree Records in the US, has released a brand new single "Yeah Yeah". The UK- based, New Zealand-born, singer, songwriter, musician and producer has already garnered international attention following the release of an impressive debut single, "Railroad Track" b/w "Bang Bang" on Jack White's Third Man Records. Willy Moon will be releasing his EP on December 4th (Cherrytree Records).
Willy Moon and his dynamic band hit the road this month as opener for Jack White on a run of shows in the UK and Ireland. His very first US dates - to take place in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco in December - will be announced shortly.
Willy Moon writes, records, and produces everything on his own and keeps things short: nothing grazes the three-minute mark. Inspired equally by love of the physical energy of Cab Calloway, the brevity of The Ramones, and the style of film noir, Moon doesn't blend different sounds so much as smash them together--as if rock 'n' roll was deep-frozen in 1965 and abruptly reanimated 45 years later by a laptop hip-hop producer.
Moon's online radio show, "Moon Time," in which he explores the varied influences on his music, airs on CherrytreeRadio.com every Thursday at 8:30 p.m. PST.
