Dog in a cone – check. Floral patterns – check. Wigs – check. Passing a rubber chicken – check. Swapping outfits and instruments – check. All that and more, in the absolutely adorable new video for Moon Shy’s “Romantic Egoists” shot and edited by Luke Borsten.
A new project from Stephen Leisy of Genders, Moon Shy play a timeless blend of psych-tinged garage-pop. Their track “Romantic Egoists” calls to mind the poppy and playful melody of The Beatles’ “In My Life”, through a grittier, dancier and dare I say more psychedelic lens. Leisy certainly has no shortage of songwriting and recording chops, and his new power trio shows serious promise for becoming one of Portland’s next big acts.
See them for yourself next Wednesday night, live at Holocene in support for Psyche Lifeline (new project from Jem of The Ghost Ease) and Wave Action.
