listen to a new song from ludvig moon

ludvig moon has a tendency to craft impeccable hooks, regardless of which pop tangent they choose to explore.  the norwegian quintet released their self-titled debut ep via riot factory last month, a four-song collection that finds the young band tracing a light pattern through the many permutations of shoegaze, handling both the subdued and the cinematic with relative ease.  but even when ludvig moon embarks on an ostensibly straight-ahead journey, the venture proves to be wonderfully multi-faceted.  penultimate track “anywhere/anything” presents itself as the most upbeat offering on the ep – pushed along by busy drumming and lightly-phased guitar lines – but the song’s final minute swaps out any remaining c86 influence for a lushly-orchestrated, half-time coda.  this kind of attention to detail and direction on such an early outing is rather rare, and indicates a promising future for this outfit.  take a listen to “anywhere/anything” below.
