Twin Moons/Bearwolf, Pt.1 by My Friend The Chimpanzee: Review
Twin Moons/Bearwolf Pt.1 is the latest offering from the Austrian electro-pop duo My Friend The Chimpanzee. This Murakami inspired tune will keep your head bobbing for hours.
Drawing its inspiration from the Haruki Murakami novel 1Q84, the song entertains the thought of a parallel universes with somewhat darker and lighter versions of ourselves in a mystically compelling fashion just like the novel. We see instances where we aren’t really proud of many things that we’ve done and we wish we could take off the records. But equally we have more good in ourselves that makes the world a little more livable.
The duo has done a fantastic job putting together the song both lyrically and musically. A deep bass with a lead analogue synth to start off the song they incorporate elements from funk, disco, rock, pop, trap and hip hop along the way. Combined with the vocoder soaked vocals, the track flares its colors all throughout the song. This is one of those songs that intrigues you to check out the artist’s rest of the catalog. This is only their third released single, but the duo consistently one upped themselves on each one.
