Moon Boots ‘Utopia’ Ft. Janelle Kroll

Utopia Moon Boots

MOON BOOTS has teamed up with Brooklyn songstress JANELLE KROLL to take you on a trip with their track ‘Utopia’, and it would seem making it to paradise is just one galactic, nu-disco trip away from our happy little ears.

Moon Boots, aka Peter Dougherty, has been producing cosmic edged music since 2011, but more recently he has put together a number of remixes. He has started working on his own stuff again and we hope he keeps churning more out. Teaming up with Brooklyn based singer/songwriter Janelle Kroll has given ‘Utopia’ a more soulful, pop edged, approach to the galactic sound to create something playful.

‘Utopia’ opens with a bright, futuristic synthesizers and a hollow kick-drum percussion line. The spacey edge is evident, however with many people visualising their personal Utopia as an island paradise there is also a feel of summertime and beaches, maybe even a hint of the sounds of the Caribbean if they were meshed with electronica.

As Kroll’s vocals enter the track there is a slight darkness to them. Singing the lyrics in a deep tone they tell a slightly darker tale than the music itself. As the track progresses though a brighter spark shines through the track, giving it a distinctly pop feel. You could say the darker side to the vocals represents people unable to imagine a Utopia.

You can grab your piece of galactic ‘Utopia’ now on iTunes. It’s probably easier than trying to claim your seat on a rocket, and definitely more cost effective than an overseas plane ride.

Over caffeinated weirdo who knows the meaning of eclectic music tastes because of Sister Act II. I’ll accept just about anything, except for that one Snoop Dogg album where track seven gives me a headache.
