Expanding on their experimental fusion of ’90s alternative, psychedelia and art rock, Singaporean trio Wolf&TheMoon have lifted the veil on their third studio effort, “Can of Bees”.
Diverging from the band’s other musical endeavours, including vocalist/guitarist Aaron’s synthwave project don.a.a.ron and drummer Jiv’s garage rock group Knightingale, “Can of Bees” sees an amalgam of influences, ranging from Radiohead and Beck to David Bowie and The Verve. Clocking in at just under 10 minutes, the slow-burning voyage brings atmospheric noise and musical dexterity together for a song that’s perfect to tune out of the world to, and an undeniably rewarding journey for patient listeners.
As with previous music videos, the single’s black-and-white visual representation once again sees an ambitious, socially conscious effort, contrasting the beauty of nature and human achievement with visions of conflict and suffering in a fashion reminiscent of Godfrey Reggio’s 1982 minimalist film, Koyaanisqatsi.
