Just last week we were impressed with DF and their audiovisual single, “Ricky’s Backyard.” Now we’re bringing you away from his backyard and to the moon—or at least almost there.
“Moondling” is the fourth song on DF’s upcoming audiovisual album abcdf. DF told us the title comes from a Jorge Luis Borge short story, and the smooth, rhythmic saxophone pays homage to Erik Satie. Featuring puppeteer Colin St-Cyr Duhamel and Ben Palevsky, in “Moondling” we watch a puppet do his best to reach the sky and touch the moon.
Of course, it’s harder than it looks, and the puppet gets more and more frustrated as he tries. Will he make it?
With this video, DF show why it matters that their album is an audiovisual one. The song and video for “Moondling” blend perfectly together, from the “arc” of the song to the carefully timed actions in the video that sync along with the music.
