Unless you got up pretty damn early, you probably missed the blood moon this morning. Fortunately, Birmingham, AL, three piece Wray have got you covered. While I’m pretty sure their new video for “Blood Moon”, isn’t exactly, you know, “scientifically accurate”, it plays off the imagery, and the mystery, of the lunar eclipse.
“Blood Moon starts as suggestion, moves towards a sense of wonder, and succumbs to realism,” the band’s David Brown explains of the Paul Cordes Wilm-directed clip. “The weighted guitars, rowing drums and sheen vocals create a feeling of inevitability. The lyrical content of the song plays with this concept. Some things end just when they begin.”
The blistering/blissful track comes from their recent self-titled LP available on Communicating Vessels. They’ll perform as part of CMJ at Lit Lounge in New York on October 22.
