Moon Duo – Mazes

If anyone out there is looking for the perfect music to put on while on a road trip then I think I’ve got the answer.

Moon DuoThe song is Mazes by San Francisco born band, Moon Duo. It’s repetitive structure yet upbeat melody makes for great listening.

With its simple rhythms and eccentric guitar, I can’t help but imagine how good a song it would be to put on while driving along a country road in the hot summer heat.

Moon Duo are a couple consisting of the Wooden Shjips guitarist, Ripley Johnson, and his partner, Sanae Yamada.

Their music is their take on psychedelic rock where they’ve flipped it around slightly. It’s not like the stuff from the 70s, it’s a modern day version.

Although the song is good, it’s not great. It’s not brand new in what it does but it is fun. It’s a typical American driving song with the repetitive guitar chords and organ, especially the reverb on the vocals.
A good summer tune and when you’re fed up of all the cold weather and rain, this is bound to perk you up and pray for long summer days and a nice long drive.

The single is out April 4.
