Summary

The deep psychedelic duo from the Pacific Northwest returns to Chicago.

What We Say

The highest apex of psychedelia, be it art, music, drugs or literature, is to induce a prolonged consciousness shift that affects the consumer far beyond the time they were privy to the act. MOON DUO's third full-length LP, 'Shadow of the Sun,' was written entirely during one of these evolving phases -- a rare and uneasy rest period, devoid of the constant adrenaline of performing live and the stimulation of traveling through endless moving landscapes. This offered MOON DUO a new space to reflect on all of these previous experiences and cradle them while cultivating the album in the unfamiliar environment of a new dwelling; a dark Portland basement. It was from this stir-crazy fire that 'Shadow of the Sun' was forged.
