MOAT (Marty Willson-Piper & Niko Röhlcke) has officially premiered the new single ‘Acid Rain’, from their upcoming Indiegogo funded album titled ‘Poison Stream’.
Filled with a lushness crafted by a pair of worldly worn songwriters and pieced together as an experience, ‘Acid Rain’ has that instant ‘I got you’ moment from the first chord struck. Add to that the layered chord progression and that deep feeling of blending musical harmony and fusion of talent that you sense the contributions of both artists yet feel the individuality of their talents.
‘Acid Rain’ is out as of October 7th.

Marty Willson-Piper was an original member of Australia’s The Church, a former member of England’s All About Eve, and is a current member of Sweden’s Anekdoten. Famously able to be in ten bands at once, Marty has found a hole in the sky to slip through the clouds – holding a copy of POISON STREAM, the second MOAT album, a collaboration with Swedish-German composer Niko Röhlcke, multi-instrumentalist and member of Sweden’s widely-known Weeping Willows.
More ongoing studio projects include Noctorum, Atlantaeum Flood, Space Summit, an unnamed project with Tangerine Dream’s Jerome Froese, and a production role and guitar contribution to Texan Salim Nourallah’s latest project.

Due out on 7th October as part of the Indiegogo-funded campaign for the band’s forthcoming second album POISON STREAM (to be released through Schoolkids Records in February 2021), ACID RAIN is a gorgeous blend of the musical DNA of the two members. This latest single which acts as a mission statement and calling card for the record to follow takes the shimmering 12-string sounds which were so resonant during Willson-Piper’s days in The Church but cocoons them in Röhlcke’s wonderful peripheral electronica to build a heavily synth-powered, pop-rock lament.
If the previous single GONE BY NOON showed the duo’s ability to conjure images of cold war trysts and central European espionage through strange and beautiful chamber-pop designs, ACID RAIN sees them working at the other end of the sonic spectrum to create music from more rock and psychedelic brushstrokes, though no less deft, delicate and with the same hints of melancholia.
ACID RAIN is available from the 7th of October 2020 via all your favorite platforms. Simultaneously, the band will be launching their preorder campaign through Indiegogo.
