With an epic/ethereal sound similar to Deftones or Loathe and Failure, Floridian band Moodring has just unveiled their new single and music video, “Disintegrate.” The new song follows the debut single, “Show Me The Real You,” which dropped about a year ago. Now signed to UNFD Records, there’s bound to be much more activity from this budding band in the near term.

Vocalist, guitarist, and producer Hunter Young comments:

“The sound of Moodring derives from an eclectic mix of genres, but it’s when we can contrast these differences within one song that we really thrive, and I think this track is a key example of that. On the surface, the song is this beautiful, epic ‘gazer,’ but lyrically it delves into much heavier subjects, such as the hopelessness one can feel when everything you pursue seems constantly out of your grasp, and the nihilistic tendencies that I think everyone can lean into at times. Everyone has regrets, but it is regret for the things we did not do that is truly inconsolable.”

Hunter also touches on the band’s sound and lyrics, noting:

“The human experience can be both beautiful and terrifying, simple yet incredibly complex, and ultimately, it’s entirely human to feel unsure if you want to participate in any of it. Sometimes, the only escape you can find is in a daydream – ‘Disintegrate’ is the soundtrack of both the conflict and the daydream.”
