Today, Moonalice, the 10-piece Bay Area collective known for bringing peace, love, and happiness wherever they go, releases their uplifting anthem “Woo Woo.” As fans reset for the new year and look to the future, Moonalice reminds them to reflect on the present, where sometimes the destination is actually the journey itself. Written by The T Sisters’ Rachel Tietjen, who now is a member of Moonalice along with her sisters, “Woo Woo” is a song about living in the moment. Featuring upbeat instrumentation that mirrors the clickety-clack sound of a train in motion, the song’s rhythmic flow invites listeners to awaken a greater sense of self-awareness and embrace today’s offerings.
“Woo Woo'' is the second single that the renowned group has released since signing to Nettwerk in late 2021. It follows Moonalice’s rendition of “Time Has Come Today” fronted by Lester Chambers, an original member of influential psychedelic soul band The Chambers Brothers who were featured prominently throughout Questlove’s acclaimed Summer of Soul documentary and their single “Uptown” will be on the official soundtrack, due out next year. The San Francisco Chronicle praised Moonalice’s take on “Time Has Come Today,” proclaiming that it is “the type of jam you’d want to hear in the Golden Gate Park afternoon sunshine at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass or during the Summer of Love.” Moonalice’s version has also received radio support and Nashville’s Lightning 100 recently selected it as their DJ Pick of the Week.
Now, Moonalice releases "Woo Woo,” a song that was in high demand for a studio version after their fans faithfully sang along to the joyful ‘Woo! Woo!’ chorus at concerts all across North America, from the LOCKN’ festival in Arrington, VA to Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA. Throughout the pandemic, the song was performed during Moonalice’s frequent livestreams, which have become an essential way for the band to stay connected to audiences. Moonalice’s founder, Roger McNamee, continues to hold a weekly “Saturday Stream” to fill the digital airwaves with positive vibrations.
To help fans ring in 2022, Moonalice has created a special playlist featuring “Woo Woo” alongside a collection of songs that have influenced them. Head to Spotify to listen: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3R6HdFqg8RGawcBZa0ENGP?si=ede0758710ed4a60
