WATCH: New Moonface Video, U.S. Tour Starts this Week

Directed by UK artist Marsha Balaeva, the new video for Moonface’s “Faraway Lightning” premiered today on MTV Hive. Balaeva created the video with her own hand-drawn images. “According to her, the story corresponds to the five stages of mourning — as the clip’s protagonist travels between worlds, he comes to grips with his loss. Krug is a master at blending myth and fantasy into everyday stories — in fact, the character’s feather suit and fall to earth recalls the Icarus story, a myth Krug used frequently with Sunset Rubdown.” It’s the second video to accompany his recently released album With Siinai: Heartbreaking Bravery. Watch above!

Spencer Krug kicks off his U.S. tour this week. Joining him at every show is Siinai, with whom he collaborated on Heartbreaking Bravery. See the full list of dates HERE.

Spencer Krug is Awesome: An Essay by Joe S., Age 14

JAG146

Spencer Krug as Moonface

Today we received what is probably my favorite piece of fanmail for Spencer Krug of all time.  Included in the email was a 500-word essay that Joe S., age 14 of Minnesota, wrote in order to win a Spencer-themed 1″ button.  Joe’s opinions contained herein are not necessarily representative of Jagjaguwar or its employees. There is one thing we can both agree on, though, and that is that Spencer Krug is Awesome.
