Super Pink Moon was created in 2019 as a solo project of Somali Yacht Club guitarist and vocalist Ihor Pryshliak in Lviv Ukraine. Gracefully interweaving post-rock shoegaze and indie rock his sophomore album IRON RAIN (2022) depicted the angst and emotional turmoil of having to make it through the day when surrounded by chaos as it was entirely written recorded and released amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine. His new album Inertia is the sequel to IRON RAIN offering shape-shifting dynamics, heady riffs and airy, melancholic vocals, while implicitly dealing with sensitive and politically charged topics.
About the album, Ihor Pryshliak says:
This new album is about inertia – it’s when a part of your life continues to move along the previous trajectory until the collision. It’s convenient and reliable, there are no risks, you just keep moving in the same direction. The problem with inertia is low flexibility. For example, to turn a large ship, a lot of effort is needed. As a result, we take a long time to adapt to new abrupt changes. The inertia of my life is actually the Super Pink Moon project. At the moment it has lost its relevance, but purely out of inertia, I finished it and am releasing it as it is. From a musical point of view, it’s just home experiments, as always a mixture of all styles. Some tracks have more electronics, some less. I would love it to be listened to not as background music, but how can I force anyone, right?
Inertia will be released on November 17 2023.
