Masterful indie folk-pop trio Moonrise Nation will release their debut album, Glamour Child, this Friday, July 28 on Zinc Records, a label formed by Bobby Z of Prince’s band, The Revolution. The band previously released the chillingly beautiful album track “Eye to Eye” with Ghettoblaster and title track “Glamour Child,” (930K+ Spotify streams) which was inspired by a piece of art created by Arden and Eva’s grandmother, which they used for the album cover. The band’s Paste Magazine “Style Record” feature ran this week and today they reveal the “Common Fear” video via POPULAR TV. The video harnesses the song’s urgent and universal dilemma of many young people and adults, the fear of getting older, the fear of being vulnerable enough to be in love, and the fear of never knowing which steps are right to take on the path towards your future (whatever that may be). Directed by Will Reiland & R.A. Schwartz, the “Common Fear” video here
Hailing from Oak Park, Illinois, songwriting and vocal duties are equally shared between guitarist Emma McCall, keyboardist Arden Baldinger, and cellist Eva Baldinger the latter two of which are sisters. Their storytelling is crafted from a very personal place, deftly sculpted into a layered, universal experience. Produced by Stephen Shirk (Alabama Shakes, Delta Spirit), the album captures the vertiginous, Millennial high-lows of self-confidence and doubt, happiness and practicality, innocence and reality, feminist strength and vulnerability.
The band will hit the road this summer, serving up their unique, dynamic mix of swoony delicacy and anthemic pop peaks to audiences across the country. Be sure to catch Moonrise Nation live in a city near you. Full list of dates HERE or see below.
