The Moon Apes: Plastic Preacher

Plastic Preacher EP cover art
Plastic Preacher is the debut EP from The Moon Apes, the London, UK duo of Elias Elgerud and Daniela Trojmar. The three tracks are not your everyday post-punk. The EP is marked by a dissonant approach to songwriting, which requires a bit of a sonic leap from the listener. While highly experimental and unique, the constant dissonance make the three tracks a difficult listen. Without the respite of any resolved chord progressions, the EP takes on a vibe that is disconcerting and leaves one with the tension expected from such a musical aesthetic. Not our cup of tea, but worth a listen. Stream and download Plastic Preacher at the link below.
