Angel Haze

"Moonrise Kingdom"

BY Gregory AdamsPublished Sep 8, 2015

Angel Haze's forthcoming Back to the Woods may well be shaping up into a blockbuster effort. The rapper has dropped her usual flow to deliver a more pop-geared piece that goes by the name "Moonrise Kingdom." You can hear her royal new tune now.

The track, possibly inspired by Wes Anderson's youthful film of the same name, unravels gorgeously via a backdrop of velvet-smooth synths and snickety beats. Above this, Haze uses a hopeful, if blue-sounding singing voice that imagines a "moonrise kingdom only made for two."

There's some conflict observed in the number, but it ultimately comes across as a solid, optimistic love song. You can hear it down below.
