Electronic shoegaze outfit, MUON started as a solo project of Nick Chan and revolved around electronic experimentation, fusing the sounds of IDM, ambient triphop, drum n bass, all within a backdrop of jazzy cinematic soundscapes.
The band bridges the disparate gap between the worlds of explosive rock and dark electronica without falling prey to the trappings of either. MUON is made up of guitarist/producer Nick Chan, drummer Edwin Leong and the reclusive Leopold von Berlin, who shares synths and electronics duties with Nick. The threesome has individually been members of other notable acts such as Astreal, The Death of Cinema, I Am David Sparkle, The Pagans and Starr. Find out how to win a copy of MUON’s latest EP after the jump.
Nick produced and recorded an EP and two full length MUON albums which ventured from the largely electronic sound of ‘The Death of Cinema LP’ into the organic, sometimes over-involved humanity of post-rock soundscapes in the ‘In Flught LP’.
The band recently released their Love Drops EP, a prelude to their upcoming full-length, ‘The New Mutants’, which will come out via Wallwork Records later this year.
