Moodring Share Music Video For ‘N.I.K.E’

Florida alt-metal quartet MOODRING release their brand new album Stargazer viaUNFD.

To celebrate the release, the band has shared the video for “N.I.K.E.” 

“‘N.I.K.E.’ is a song about forbidden love under the eyes of religion,” singer Hunter Young shares. “The lyrics are about fighting the taboos of dogma and judgement to love who you love and to be with the one you truly desire. After being forced into hiding for long enough, the characters in the song lose control. The tension has become too much to bear, coming together through what they’ve been taught is sin and blasphemy. But when they find each other all they feel is ecstasy.”

Mooring Announce Debut Record, ‘Stargazer’

Rising Floridian alt-metal quartet Moodring have spent 2022 thus far taking listeners on a journey of contrast and juxtaposition. Where ‘Disintegrate’ paired spacious beauty with existentialist lyricism, ‘Constrict’ set a quest for truth within toxic spirals to a soundtrack of pummelling immediacy. But these tracks were but tastes of what was to come, lying in wait, coiled and ready to strike. 

Today, Moodring are peeling the veil further with the announcement of debut album, Stargazer, to be released on 10th June 2022, via UNFD. 

An album soaked and splattered with shades of crimson, black and blue, Stargazer explores themes of pain and loss, sex and addiction, love and death against a gloriously patchwork musical backdrop. 

“We were excited to explore deeper themes and different aspects of our band throughout the full length,” shares vocalist Hunter Young, who co-produced Stargazer at his home studio, The Swamp Sound, alongside collaborator Austin Coupe; “The album dives into our pool of influences unabashedly but resurfaces as its own entity. Each song was written with personal meaning and multiple themes, whilst remaining ambiguous and open enough for listeners to relate in their own way.” 

“The intention of SYNC.wav was to create something that was blatantly erotic but expressed through one of the more crushing and heavy sides of the album,” reveals Hunter. “It describes the moment you start falling for someone or something, the intoxicating romantic aura of it all. But on the flipside, it also addresses a human tendency to drown in that very same romance. It’s about losing yourself completely, for better and worse. The title itself highlights that inherent ambiguity, with opposing meanings stemming from the one word that is repeated throughout – to “sink”, or to “sync”. Despite the overt sexual references on the surface, at its core, the lyrics tackle two different things that all too often collide with each other: romance and addiction. Addicted to love, addicted to sex, addicted to the moment.”

Alongside the album announcement, Moodring have unleashed a third single from Stargazer in the shape of the thick, pulsing ‘SYNC.wav’, a slow-burning crush that typifies the duality at the core of the album and, indeed, its creators. 

“The intention of SYNC.wav was to create something that was blatantly erotic but expressed through one of the more crushing and heavy sides of the album,” reveals Hunter. “It describes the moment you start falling for someone or something, the intoxicating romantic aura of it all.

Moodring Release Crushing New Track, ‘Constrict’

Rising high off January’s soaring mini-epic ‘Disintegrate’, Floridian alt-metal quartet Moodringhave unveiled their brand new single, ‘Constrict’. 

In turns pummeling and infectiously catchy, ‘Constrict’ is as likely to leave listeners with neck ache as humming the track’s immense chorus on repeat.

“’Constrict’ is a song about toxic spirals,” shares Moodring vocalist and creative driver Hunter Young“It sees the narrator stuck within the confines of a one-sided relationship, comparing the relationship to the way Constrictor snakes kill their prey by coiling around them and squeezing until they’re crushed, void of oxygen. The narrator searches for truth, but when they finally reach it, they do not have the stomach to leave the situation. The song climaxes with them knowing the relationship is dead, but still sticking around, despite the fact that it’s long been over, giving up and letting the story spiral downward into even more toxic situations.”

Matching jarring, claustrophobic visuals to the intensity of its sonics, today’s ‘Constrict’ release also comes alongside its brand new music video. Directed by UK based filmmaker Zak Pinchin (Loathe, Holding Absence, Modern Error), the ‘Constrict’ video threads the needle between sultry and scary, a perfect companion to the powerful contrasts inherent to the Moodring sound.
