French alternative-rock/nugaze duo Ron Moor released and streamed new album ‘Upside Down’.
… after spending the last weeks to share some various singles from the effort and following a successful crowdfunding campaign, Alternative-rock/Nugaze duo from France Ron Moor finally released its brand new full-length album called ‘Upside Down’ and available right now on CD/LP/Digital the main legal services (Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify, etc.).
“May 2019. Ultra-Catholic students perpetrate homophobic acts in the heart of La Roche-sur- Yon, France. It was on this ground of intolerance that Upside Down, Ron Moor’s third album, was born.
Wishing to maintain total artistic independence, it only took Ron Moor a few months to compose, write, record and mix, all at home, this new opus of twelve tracks decidedly more engaged and more powerful than the previous ones.
Far from falling into primary anti-clericalism, ‘Upside Down’ nonetheless paints a gloomy portrait of a sinking society, beset by religious and political extremism. In this concept album, Ron Moor draws on his Judeo-Christian roots to deliver a message of respect and tolerance.”
