Moon King’s Obsession II EP comes out on Record Store Day, April 20, via Fucked Up guitarist Mike Haliechuk’s One Big Silence label. The Toronto band’s six songs here are dream-pop with fangs, packing their reverb-layered surfaces with punchy playing and swooning melodies. The band consists of Daniel Woodhead (whose brother is Airick of Doldrums) and his longtime friend Maddie Wilde, and they’re touring now. Listen to the full EP exclusively below, and scroll down to see when you can catch them live.
