Willy Moon - I Wanna Be Your Man

You know that wonderful feeling you get when you discover a new artist? The rush of finding something fresh that you can't wait to share with everyone, unless you want future hipster kitty rights on your private gem. Learning more about them and especially finding more of their music to the borderline of obsession becomes your hobby.  Not long ago, I stumbled upon the music video for Willy Moon's "I Wanna Be Your Man" by pure chance.  The song is only one minute and fifty seconds long.  It ends before you can realize what you just watched, but those one hundred and twenty seconds are so good.

There's not much info online that really explains who this Willy Moon character is and where he came from.  Apparently, he's originally from New Zealand, but currently resides in London.  "I Wanna Be Your Man" is the only track of his that's available for listening and he's always wearing a polished suit.  The lack of details along with his black and white stylistic image creates an odd mystery around Willy Moon.  Musically, "I Wanna Be Your Man" is a bizarre mix of a vintage 50's sound and noise-pop percussion.  It's all incredibly addictive.  The video only adds even more to the package and I can't wait to hear more from this newcomer with a throwback vibe.
