“Artificial” by Moaning

“Artificial” is the new video from Moaning’s forthcoming self-titled, debut album, helmed by the directorial team A Stranger. Guitarist Sean Solomon says of the shimmery, 120 Minutes-style visual, “The video mirrors the themes of insincerity and artificiality in the song. To shoot the video we used practical effects to warp the viewers perception of what’s happening. It was appropriately shot in Los Angeles on 35mm film much like other disingenuous Hollywood productions.”

Moaning will be available on CD/LP/CS/DL worldwide through Sub Pop. The 10-track album, featuring “Artificial” and “Don’t Go” along with highlights “Tired” “The Same,” and “Misheard,” was recorded and engineered by Alex Newport in Los Angeles.
