The Brooklyn-based group, Arthur Moon, recently shared the single “Chaos! Chaos! Chaos!.” Fronted by Lora-Faye Åshuvud, alongside collaborators Cale Hawkins (Quincy Jones, Bilal, Linda Perry), Martin D. Fowler (a composer for This American Life), Dave Palazola, and Aviva Jaye, the group crafts a haunting and addictive electro-pop sound for the single.
Along with the single, the group shared a magnetic video directed by Garrett Weinholtz. Featuring Lora-Faye Åshuvud and her partner, her solo audience member, the video combines the eerie and absurd realities of live music during covid.
Check out the video:
Also drawing on David Lynch and Twin Peaks for the visuals, Lora-Faye Åshuvud explains where the song came together:
Chaos! Chaos! Chaos! is a queer date wandering through New York as it burns, a new love growing up in the ruins of an old one, a debauched night walk across a scorched earth. We started the instrumental on this one in the summer of 2019, and then it sat untouched on my hard drive for a year until I reopened it again last summer. Hearing it for the first time in all those months, I was captivated by its swampy energy, and immediately heard these thick, tickling vocal harmonies that would float on top of the instrumental, never quite resolving, always wanting more. Initially it was called ‘Hieronymous Bosch,’ for context, but we ended up changing it to the title track of the album, because writing this song was a moment that really solidified for me what the album would end up being about – a chaos theory of pain and love, our deep connections and their utter incoherence.
The full album, Chaos! Chaos! Chaos!, is due out in the fall.
