Having cultivated a grassroots fanbase that has taken them to international stages, Moontricks deliver their highly anticipated debut studio album, Currents. Vast, intimate, and dazzling, the 11-track album centers on themes of settling into feeling comfortably lost and being okay with not knowing it all. A body of work that finds joy and inspiration in the act of seeking, Currents provides a comprehensive deep dive into the soul, heart and spirit of the genre-defying band.
Based in the rustic Kootenay mountains of Western Canada, Nathan Gurley and Sean Rodman of nationally renowned electro-folk duo Moontricks draw inspiration from the ongoing cycles of the natural world. Both volatile and constant—like nature’s best offerings—the band finds solace and beauty in the fusion of seemingly disparate elements. There’s a kind of technicolor campfire quality to their uniquely hybrid sound: Each track is steeped in tradition and polished with a futuristic sheen, mixing organic folk, roots rock, and old-time blues with modern electronic production.
Since its initial release, the band’s breakout hit “Home” has reached over 5 million streaming plays, and their original tracks have been licensed for a wide range of television networks, including Netflix and Fox Sports. With the forthcoming release of their debut full-length album Currents, the duo reveals an ever-evolving, cohesive blend of introspective writing, soulful, gritty blues, boot-stomping basslines, and intricate electronic arrangements.
