24-year old Toronto native Daniel Benjamin and collaborator/co-conspirator Maddy Wilde have been making music together for most of their lives; as Moon King, the two singers weave dreamlike harmonies over buzz-saw guitars and electronic percussion, their live performances capturing a raw-nerve intensity that verges on ecstatic. Obsession I mixes the ethereal charm of the Cocteau Twins with the propulsive rhythms of Disco Inferno. Many of Daniel’s songs appeal to our darker subconscious desires, reveling in the embrace of fear and ego as a means of escape.
