King Krule has shared a new short film with Molten Jets called Live On The Moon, featuring Archy Marshall and company performing in spacesuits on—you guessed it—the moon.
Directed by Ja Humby, the film features performances of “Dum Surfer,” “The Locomotive” and six other tracks from Marshall’s second studio album, The Ooz, which Paste named at number 13 on our list of the 50 best albums of 2017. Reviewer Ryan J. Prado wrote of the album:
Darkness descends on every illuminating musical moment, as Marshall embodies the cries for help through the guise of seedy, lost characters. This is not an album to absorb in desperate moments, but rather an artfully brooding, grime-y thing that stands as a terribly unique and nightmarish account of what it could sound like to spiral out of control. Whether or not that assessment is even vaguely accurate is sort of beside the point. The Ooz is an intoxicating (sometimes nearly literally) collection, likely to imperil the cultivation of many new fans for Marshall by spoiling the twisted audience he already had.
Earlier this year, Marshall announced a month-long North American tour called “Live On Earth” in support of his latest LP, though his space-themed website refers to the shows as “launch dates.” King Krule will also make an appearance at this year’s Coachella, where he will play on both Sundays.
Last month, electronic duo Mount Kimbie released a previously unheard track called “Turtle Neck Man,” featuring King Krule, which you can listen to here.
