Since its formation in 2016, the group PYJÆN didn’t take long to establish itself as a supremely talented musical force with a sound that continually instills a sense of wonder. With each new release, the five-piece London crew (whose name is pronounced “Pie-jan”) delivers new surprises as their music evolves and matures while maintaining immense quality. Unsurprisingly, the latest release from the PYJÆN camp does not disappoint. “Moonlight” is the third single taken from their forthcoming album Feast and is premiering today on EARMILK. With guest vocals from Elisa Imperilee, “Moonlight” shows once again that PYJÆN’s music exists in a realm of its own and is absolutely worth a listen.
While Imperilee’s silky vocals provide a worthy focal point for the track as her ethereal melodies glide effortlessly through the mix, listeners’ attention will be unlikely to stray too far from the astounding musicality of PYJÆN’s instrumentalists. The group showcases their creativity and lively spirit throughout “Moonlight,” starting in the beat-driven, mellow verses that later blossom with energy and improvisational flourishes. It was obvious from their previous releases that PYJÆN is a band with breathtaking skill and plenty to say, and “Moonlight” continues that trend, creating even more excited anticipation for the upcoming LP.
"Moonlight" is available to stream or download here. The full LP Feast is set for release in September on DeepMatter Records.
