Forget dancing silhouettes the new ipod commercial has a shuffle dancing around! But wait, what is that song it’s moving to? Before your shazam could even load the commercial is over, and the beat fades away. Fear not world, we have you covered!
For those with quick eyes (or quicker phones than me) you may have noticed the art work on that grooving shuffle was for new artist Willy Moon. Willy only recently broke into the music scene. Releasing songs in the past two years that didn’t get much attention, Willy can expect to see some more action from his recent spot on this ipod commercial. And he has the music to back it up.
With a unique loungey style voice, reminiscent of an artist in a 1920′s speakeasy, Willy marries his old style with modern hip hop beats beautifully. Recnetly described as “a brilliantly odd fusion of 50s rock’n'roll and modern hip-hop production techniques”, I would say Willy Moon has the potential to set a new musical trend.
Although the song with the ipod commercial doesn’t make me want to guy buy a shuffle, it sure makes me wish there we had more artists like this.
Nothing to report in terms of a full length album just yet, but I bet we can expect an announcement soon.
Until then, enjoy the old meets new fusion of Willy Moon.
