"Tough Time To Tame Two Talking Tigers" - MerlinMoon



New York, NY (Top40 Charts / Bangybang Records) After seventeen months brewing in a mind full of uncertainty, insecurity and an unparalleled vision of a road less travelled, MerlinMoon has finally released his full length debut album "Iconography", a nostalgic and pure analog odyssey. The album embodies a limited canvas of infinite notes, inspired by nostalgia, loss and unbreakable will and consists of a ten song, thirty-five minutes journey, following the EP "Lithography" released on May 5th, 2017. "Lithography" surpassed its million YouTube views mark with more than 2.5 million minutes played in the first 90 days.

Available worldwide as of October 10, 2017. The album reflects MerlinMoon's various influences: from Peter Gabriel's intense percussive bitters, with the mellow psychedelia of Pink Floyd and King Crimson, to a touch of Sting's sensitivity and Bob Marley's subtle appeal to a higher spiritual atonement.

As an independent artist, MerlinMoon has always focused on transforming music into an art for the soul, rather than just a form of entertainment. Music, as Plato once said, "gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything." And "Iconography" delivers. It captures the sound of a vintage vinyl recorded on analog equipment and calibrated tape machines, resulting in a soothing sound quality that reflects the nostalgic sounds record collectors and music enthusiasts appreciate and love.

"Staying pure during this past decade of piracy and music degeneration has not only been hard but it also required a slight level of insanity," says MerlinMoon. "Iconography" was recorded and mixed in a vintage Helios Console that came from the legendary Jazz label ECM Records (Talent Studio, Norway) now at BangyBang Records studio in Miami, Florida, USA. The production team on the new album includes PJ Olsson (Alan Parson's Band Singer), M.Domain and IBeat House (Juan C.Nieto and Richard DeAvila). The sound texture of "Iconography" embodies the emotional purity and sound quality of classic albums infused with a contemporary canvas transcending futuristic soundscapes.
