Wolf & Moon

Wolf & Moon

After their last Album Follow The Signs in 2020 gained great support throughout different channels, Berlin-based indie duo Wolf & Moon are back with their new song To A Nova Star. While Wolf & Moon’s early songs were shaped by the travels and fresh love of two adventurous souls, there is greater heaviness and vulnerability in this one, as the German/Dutch indie pop duo had to endure some strokes of fate in recent years. The sound nevertheless remains positive and full of optimism: After starting with a dreamlike romantic dream pop melancholy, it picks us up again with a euphoric hook that you can’t get out of your head.

“You came and then you were gone,” Stef sings right at the beginning of To a Nova Star. She and Dennis went through two miscarriages between 2020 and 2022 and Stef was also diagnosed with endometriosis, a common but under-recognized chronic disease in women – a series of low blows that Wolf & Moon also process in their music as openness in dealing with their own experiences is important to them. “We want to help break the taboo and shame surrounding miscarriage,” Stef said. “And we want to do our part in the fight for more gender equality in medicine.”

Wolf & Moon elegantly express their emotional world in the accompanying music video for the song, creating an indulgent connection to the story with minimal means. With To A Nova Star the duo gives a taste of what they have created in recent years – thus, we remain excited and look forward to what is still to come in the coming months.

“Are you getting lost? Are you getting low? I see paradise from your window.”

To A Nova Star will appear on their third album To Get Lost.  On this album Wolf & Moon create a beguiling interplay of psychedelic, shimmering dream-pop melancholy and euphoric hooks. On the most extroverted work to date, Stefanie and Dennis de Beurs deal with personal blows of fate and give their pop noir a new drive, which draws a line from The xx and Beach House to Tame Impala and the early Santigold. The result is the band’s most powerful album to date, which was nominated for a VUT Indie Award with their 2019 debut Before It Gets Dark and has already played gigs in twelve countries on four continents, including events such as SXSW, ESNS and Reeperbahn Festival. On To Get Lost Wolf & Moon light up a warming fire at the end of the tunnel for all lost souls. “When you lost your heart on the way, we can find it again,” they sing. And you believe them immediately.
