Austin electronic-rock duo, Moonlight Depot have revealed their captivating new single, “Houseplant” today. The self-produced track features lush R&B vocals from Kanui, which lay over a rich fusion of live-recorded vintage blues guitar musings and the more contemporary sonic textures of EDM. The genre-defying production perfectly supports Kanui’s lyrics, which paint the internal struggle of someone who is living in two separate worlds as they attempt to balance time dedicated to their vocation while also trying to be devoted to their lover, feeling a sense of responsibility for their well-being and how often these seemingly unrelated aspects of life battle for your attention. Listen to the track now below.
Composed of multi-instrumentalist Carl Bernicker and DJ/Producer Ander Baizan, Moonlight Depot was born from the desire to bolster a return to musicality in the electronic space.
“Houseplant” follows the release of Moonlight Depot’s 2021 debut single “Fool.” The duo performed their sold-out debut show at the iconic Native Hostel Ballroom in Austin, and recently opened for dominant house superstar Carnage. In 2022, listeners can expect nationwide performances and exciting new collaborations as they continue to solidify their position as the South’s most exciting electronic-rock duo to watch.
