Moodring Premiere “N.I.K.E.” Music Video

Moodring have premiered a new video for their new song “N.I.K.E.” This track is from the band’s new album “Stargazer,” which will be released on June 10. Vocalist Hunter Young commented:

“‘N.I.K.E.‘ is a song about forbidden love under the eyes of religion. 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.”

Moodring Premiere “SYNC.wav” Music Video

Moodring have premiered a new video for their new song “SYNC.wav.” This track is from the band’s new album “Stargazer,” which will be released on June 10.

Vocalist Hunter Young said the following about the song:

“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. 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.”

He also added the following about the album:

“We were excited to explore deeper themes and different aspects of our band throughout the full length. 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.”
