If you’ve turned on the T.V. in the last three months, there’s no way you could’ve missed the newest iPod-iPhone-iTouch ad featuring the catchy tune, “Yeah Yeah” by Willy Moon. The Kiwi from New Zealand via England fuses 50s rockabilly with modern blues suave, a unique sound reminiscent of that of Elvis. Although he hasn’t released an EP or an album yet, he’s released a few singles through Luv Luv Luv Records and Jack White’s label Third Man Records after acquiring a contract with Island Records in 2010. Check out “Railroad Track,” a soulful ballad (with some social commentary included). Although he isn’t very well-known, Moon is definitely someone to watch grow in the upcoming months.
