Moon Duo announce Occult Architecture Vol. 1

Moon Duo announce 'Occult Architecture Vol. 1', the full-length comes out on February 3rd via Sacred bones.

Moon Duo’s new album Occult Architecture Vol. 1 will be released February 3rd on Sacred Bones. The band has also announced new live dates, with stops in North America and Europe. As a bonus Moon Duo have shared the album’s first single “Cold Fear”.

Offering a cosmic glimpse into the hidden patterning embedded in everything, Occult Architecture reflects the harmonious duality of these light and dark energies through the Chinese theory of Yin and Yang. In Chinese, Yin means “the shady side of the hill” and is associated with the feminine, darkness, night, earth. Following this logic, Vol. 1 embraces and embodies Moon Duo’s darker qualities — released appropriately in the heart of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

Written and recorded in their hometown of Portland, Oregon, the two-part epic reflects the hidden energies of rainclouds and sunshine and the deep creep of Northwest forests along with their effect on the psyche, inspired by the occult and esoteric literature of Mary Anne Atwood, Aleister Crowley, Colin Wilson, and Manly P. Hall.
