The melody feels finely-groomed, as does the production; it’s a pop song dressed up for Friday Night.

It’s a powerful message, and an equally powerful groove that melds deep synth counterpoint with slap-bass and a nasty sine wave growl. The melody feels finely-groomed, as does the production; it’s a pop song dressed up for Friday Night.

It’s all youthful exploration of bread-and-butter themes: how to make the most of every moment, how to get over the last complicated situation, and some general wisdom for the journey:

“I don’t want to be still
I just want to move in slow motion
I burn out until it breaks me
always sleep with one eye open”— Moontower

The result is a powerful piece that strikes an energetic tone of let-it-all-hang-out, perhaps best explained by Moontower themselves: Long Hair is about taking the failed expectations of growing up in suburban USA and reclaiming them in celebration.

Moontower is a three piece indie-electronic band based in Los Angeles. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
