Pre-orders Available Now via thirdmanrecords.com
Third Man Records is proud to present the latest single by the label’s absolute favorite producer/ singer / rock n roller from New Zealand by way of the UK: Willy Moon.
21-year-old Kiwi Willy 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, Willy 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.
On August 20th (and available for pre-order now) Third Man Records releases the 7″ single and digital download of Willy Moon’s “Railroad Track” b/w “Bang Bang.” Both songs ring out as Big Bang size collisions of R&B (new and old), Gospel, and Doo Wop suavicity making this single one of the most exciting things the crew at Third Man has heard this year.
Check out the Michael Carter directed video filmed on location in Nashville TN for “Railroad Track” here and then pre-order the 7″ here.
