OFFICIAL VID: Willy Moon – Yeah Yeah

Ladies and gents, if you haven’t heard of New Zealand retro pop singer songwriter Willy Moon yet, you will. I’ve been meaning to feature a post on him for awhile now, so here we go… This hot rising New Zealand star is sure to make some major headlines internationally in the near future. He has a very stylistic, unique, confident sound that blends dance punk, indie pop, blues, rock and roll… even a bit of doo wop. It’s some interesting stuff. So much so, that he caught the great Jack White’s attention who signed him to his ThirdMan Records label this year. Yeah Yeah is his latest single and video, available now on iTunes and featured in the Apple iPod television advertisement. Check this cool cat out! He’s like a mix of Bruno Mars and Jack White himself with some The Black Keys thrown in.

The kid has no debut album out yet, but his very first debut single in New Zealand back in 2010 was I Wanna Be Your Man. I’m not too sure how much of a household name he is over there, but we’re sure to hear more about this guy on this side of the pond shortly. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see some awesome hip hop collaborations down the road. I could think of a ton of great producers and rappers for him to work with. That rock and hip hop thing is starting to become more and more popular. Just look at the soundtrack for The Man with the Iron Fists. Wu-Tang Clan and The Black Keys? Hawwwwt.
