Moon King: Voice Of Lovers

Voice Of Lovers is Daniel Benjamin's first full-length release as Moon King since his embrace of underground disco and synthpop, recorded between Toronto & Detroit following the release of "In & Out", his 2017 debut track for Montreal label Arbutus Records (Tops, Sean Nicholas Savage).

there are a lot of quick cuts and transitions and the songs are pretty short, it's meant to feel a bit breathless or disorienting, like driving around and dropping in at a few different clubs in a night. lyrically the songs are little stories from the last couple of years...... trying to live in the US as a non-citizen, listening to records at the apartment in Hamtramck, late nights out at parties like Freakish Pleasures and Macho City, trips with the crew to Montreal, being on tour during the 2016 US election, spending the holidays alone in Detroit, the deaths of George Michael & Prince and the unfinished Moon King record from 2015. it's dark and fun and a little nihilistic but ultimately positive.
