The GOASTT (The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) – a.k.a. Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl – have revealed the music video for “Moth To A Flame,” the very first taste of their upcoming album entitled Midnight Sun (out April 29th via Chimera Music). The incredible music video can be seen as a 9-minute short film with social commentary, punctuated by The GOASTT’s postmodern-psychedelic rock track. Additionally, The GOASTT have announced U.S. tour dates in support of Midnight Sun, during which the band will perform live as a five-piece– the new line-up debuted last Fall when The GOASTT toured with The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala. See below for full routing information.

The GOASTT’s Midnight Sun is a guided tour of bold, shape-shifting sonic murals and evocative lyrical panoramas, during which the listener embarks on an auditory voyage of soaring whimsical keyboards and crunching space-age guitars that blends original melodies with kaleidoscopic freakouts. Plucking musical ingredients from all over the map, the album has a highly imaginative and distinct feel. It celebrates the unusual and the grandiose but fundamentally just rocks hard and feels good.

Familiar yet compelling, visceral and vital, Midnight Sun is at once a response to the bizarre world we’ve inherited and helped to create, and a refreshing escapist daydream that, if not hopeful, is keenly insightful. The GOASTT has given us a record that is poised to be a postmodern-psychedelic classic.
