Moon King @ Bowery Ballroom 04/16/2013

with No Comments

Tuesday night at Bowery Ballroom was a night full of raw energy to say the least. The intensity that radiates off of Moon King as they perform is like lightning. Incredibly captivating, a bit startling, but a rush nonetheless. Moon King take their dream pop/shoegaze sound and elevate it when they perform live. The harmonies between Benjamin and Wilde are so in sync and lush. The entire set is energetic and fun. Whether it’s a result of how attune Moon King are to each other on stage or because of Daniel Benjamin singing while standing on top of a drum kit, a Moon King performance is really something to experience live.

Moon King is Daniel Benjamin & Maddy Wilde.
