Listen to the New Anna Cordell Single “The Moon”

Melbourne based singer-songwriter Anna Cordell has just released her beautiful new single “The Moon”.

The lo-fi track was recorded with Obscura Hail and Luke McIvor “with my friend in rooms around my house” according to Cordell and is mesmerising. Cordell has always been one of those artists that offers up a complexity in her songwriting and if you scratch below the lo-fi sound of “The Moon” there are a lot of layers to be discovered.

Take a listen to “The Moon” here:

If you like what you hear then get down to the Kew Courthouse in Kew, VIC this Saturday 15th July where Anna Cordell will be joined by a strong trio as well as aforementioned collaborator Obscura Hail and folk singer Rough River. Check out the official Facebook event here for more information.
