Betty Moon, Toronto-born singer/songwriter, recently dropped her latest single, “Sound,” and it’s as amazing as you would expect from someone with Moon’s resume. Moon is no stranger to the airwaves, having had previous work featured on LA radio stations and a smattering of popular television shows such as Californication, Dexter, and Bounty Hunters.
“Sound,” the first single release from Moon’s upcoming album “Chrome,” does not disappoint.
Moon combines beautifully composed lyrics with an iridescent electro-sound, creating a perfect blend of electro-pop that will have you feeling the desire to move in time. Unlike some other electro-pop songs, the music track isn’t overpowering—allowing you to fully enjoy the imaginative lyrics Moon is spinning.
The premise of the song covers exactly how you’ll feel while listening to it—Moon discusses getting lost in the music and letting yourself go. As she’s crooning the words, “Put your hands up and let it take you down,” you’ll find yourself doing just that.
On a personal note, I found myself singing along before the end of the song, the first time listening to it. I have since listened to it a dozen times and have learned every word, belting it out in the privacy of my own car. It’s catchy; “Sound” gets under your skin and makes you want to move along with the rhythm. Moon’s voice is soothing, while powerful; with an eclectic style all of her own.
“Sound” is unlike anything you’ll find on the mainstream radio stations, so you won’t find yourself tiring of it anytime soon. Her melodic words float perfectly across the heavy-hitting bass, producing an immaculate mix of beat and harmony. This song will please music lovers and dancers all across a wide range of channels as Moon’s unique approach defies genre-labels.
Moon’s new single is currently available on her website and will help carry you across until the full album, “Chrome,” drops later this season. “Sound” is an incredible first-release single for Moon. I’m excited to hear the rest of the album! Congratulations, Ms. Moon—you definitely have a winner on your hands here.
