Moon Bounce’s Skip Intro LP Out Now On Grind Select | First Album in Three Years; Newly Signed To Domino Publishing
Today, producer, songwriter and vocalist, Moon Bounce has released his latest LP, Skip Intro. Variance Magazine, praised, “The multi-dimensional album
After three years of silence brought on by a battle with anxiety disorder. Skip Intro examines many of the thoughts held by Regensburg during this time. The album is honest and compelling, while still carrying his signature sound. Regensburg shared three singles in anticipation to the album, “Hook” “Better Now” and “Malm” receiving praise from The FADER, EARMILK, BuzzBands LA and more.
“Skip Intro emerged as a flotation device in a sea of despair and confusion,” he says. “After suffering a micropsychotic episode in 2017, I had the opportunity to rebuild my life in a new city. After discussing my situation with Tommy Lee via a chance encounter on Twitter, I was invited to move to Los Angeles to work on his solo record. This was a true gift to my mental health. Many of these tunes were written in between sessions with Tommy, which were always surreal and full of positive energy. I felt safe exploring a range of subjects including anxiety, sexuality, infidelity, perseverance, and conflicting philosophical ideas.”
Following nearly three years of silence and a battle with anxiety disorder, Moon Bounce returns with his sophomore full-length LP, Skip Intro, a memento of panic-ridden ruminations. Combining soulful melodies, jilted percussion and hyper-controlled synthesis, the album does not shy away from difficult topics, bringing listeners into the darkness as Regensburg unabashedly confronts himself.
Moon Bounce’s signature sound is still intact and more pristine than ever; obtuse rhythms, helium-soaked vocals and larger-than-life production create an immersive environment where lyrics like “please don’t blame me if I ask you to repeat what you just said, I was just imagining what it would be like to be dead” are repeated with a cheery disposition. You might want to laugh or you might want to cry but it’s this deadpan realism that makes Regensburg’s music so relatable and anything but one-dimensional.
With the release of the LP, Moon Bounce is offering Skip Intro in a unique way; A limited-edition USB drive in a slime-filled petri dish will be available on Bandcamp.
