Wet Moon is the MOTHER ISLAND’s sophomore album. The band from Vicenza, Italy, returns with an album that marks a turning point on the band’s psychedelic path, with a more pop-oriented approach for its sounds and compositions. An album that alternates fast ballads, in which the voice scratches and carries the guitars that may have been recorded by band as Allah Las or The Growlers, to darker, psychedelic moments, as the cathartic and liberating “La Danse Macabre”. MOTHER ISLAND refer to themselves as melancholy and their music enhances the mood, like the full moon reflected in the water: here explained the title of the album, the result of a dissolute night spent wandering by boat through the Venice canals. A stream of consciousness oozing lysergic experiences and inner journeys, in which the voice of Anita Formilan exorcises demons and ghosts of an imaginary à la Velvet Underground. But the sound that comes out is warm and enveloping, alluring and sensual, thanks also to production, who used only analog instruments.
