To say it’s a pleasure to hear new music from the superb rock artist “Mourning Moon”. This new release “Sex on Saturn” is stunning, professionally crisp yet classic sounding, and incredibly emotional with every moment. “Sex on Saturn” is a single by this awesome soul, and it’s a wonderful introduction to the direction of his latest work.
Mourning Moon is beautiful from the offset, the simple things that worked in rock in the recent years – the compelling build-up from the soundscape to the full-on warmth and weight of a distorted rhythm and bass section, the upfront and personal vocal style, the passion, the poetry, the honesty, the grit – everything has been reignited here, brought back to life in a fresh and memorable way. As you make your way to that hook the intensity and emotion rise accordingly, passing on effectively to you as you listen, finally exploding for that central moment – that spike in the melody and the equally mesmerizing vocal performance that drives the sentiment through flawlessly.
There are always so many good things to say about Mourning Moon’s songwriting. It’s great to hear that this particular song is being given the attention and recognition it deserves, particularly considering its message, its depth, and its importance. This whole thing has really brightened up every possible moment with the track. You can hear the organic individuality of each instrument, and yet at the same time you can lose yourself in the ambiance and gentle rhythm of it all – the overall finish underlines a certain unity between everything involved, so that hopeful warmth and that equally emotional sense of concern for the future arrive in hypnotic music with one another. It’s a beautiful song that everyone is going to love.
The release has power because of everything involved in its make-up. The organic rock soundscape part is all at once calming and distant, feeling right there in the room at first, then seeming much further away from you – much like the experiences detailed in the lyrics. The song switches from the rock vocal to the melodic one much more frequently than expected, adding to that unusual structural approach and really just enhancing the creative freedom and identity of the sound. This collaboration between producer and performer has made for something that stands out in a unique and fresh way.
