Supergroup Summer Moon, which features Nikolai Fraiture (The Strokes), Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction), Camila Grey (Uh Huh Her), and Noah Harmon (Airborne Toxic Event) appeared out of nowhere over a year ago to woo me with a muggy dance rock jangler named With You Tonight. The track, which they marked as a demo at the time, has now received one of those newfangled interactive 360 degree music video treatments, giving us the opportunity get up and strut around once again to the sweltry gem. I’d imagine if Porches, Broken Bells, and Spanish Gold jammed out together, it would sound something similar to this delightful charmer. The video accompaniment tells a tale about two people coming home from a dance ball and stumbling into a strange, occult world. I guess it arrives just in time for Halloween, then! Summer Moon is planning to release a debut album in 2017. With You Tonight is out on all major retailers.

It’s always exciting when members from different fantastic bands come together to form a supergroup, though the resulting music isn’t always as spectacular as the stuff from their original bands. Summer Moon’s With You Tonight, however, is an example of when it really works well. Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Spring, Lewis Lazar, The Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture, and Like’s Tennessee Thomas come together as Summer Moon to dole out a muggy dance rock jangler, heavily imbued with a funking, whimsical groove. It reminds me of Modest Mouse’s more uptempo offerings, but drenched in disco flavored, flushed pluckiness. This one’s fit for a very good twirl around the room.
