Approved: Moonface & Siinai

Moonface & Siinai

Moonface and Siinai reprise their 2012 collaboration on ‘Heartbreaking Bravery’ with a second album released on 3 Jun, ‘My Best Human Face’.

They released the record’s first single, ‘Risto’s Riff’, earlier this year, a fun, off-centre rock track bristling with nervous energy and restrained anger. As the unveiling of the full album draws closer, they now return with another track, ‘Them Call Themselves Old Punks’.

Again the song manages to be angry and abstract, this time beginning quietly tense, and slowly building to a chorus brought to life by grinding guitars, a descending keyboard line and a choir singing the hook line, “There’s nothing punk about that”.

You can catch Moonface & Siinai in London at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on 27 Jun. Tickets here.
