Sydney’s Crystal Cities recorded their new song ‘Under the Cold Light of the Moon’ at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. It is the band’s first new music in two years.
“We literally spent years labouring over the recording, mixing, and mastering of this just to get it sounding the way we wanted it to,” the band said in a statement.
“The song ‘Under the Cold Light of the Moon’ was inspired by the plight of young North Korean girl Yeonmi Park who escaped North Korea in search of freedom. After watching her speech I penned the lyrics, interpreting her story,” guitarist and singer Geoff Rana added.
‘Under the Cold Light of the Moon’ is the title track from the upcoming album for Crystal Cities. It was mixed by Paul Lani from Los Angeles, whose credits include Prince and David Bowie. The band also features Jared King on bass and vocals and Daniel Conte on drums and percussion.
Crystal Cities have two shows on the way to launch the new single.
Friday, May 31st – The Lass O’Gowrie Hotel, Newcastle
