South Londoner Eli Moon has shared his single 'Phases', released on MERIDAM and co-written & produced by MOJAM.
Released as the first single from Eli Moon's new EP 'Angels Devils & Empty Vessels' which is out now, 'Phases' shows off signature sound, which fuses an electro-pop, commercial sound with contemporary R&B, with just a sprinkle of indie rock.
The catchy, upbeat production is layered and clever with a unique and striking sound - combined with Eli's smooth vocals makes for a quality track which invites you in and makes you want to listen over and over.
Moon says on the track:
"Phases is a song about change. Whilst a lot of people seek comfort in life...if I stop for too long and become too comfortable I very quickly start to lose my mind! I wrote this song at a time where I needed something new. Life felt like a never ending cycle of the same activities, same people and I just needed to escape. In the song I deal with the existential crisis that I often find myself in, where I begin to question everyone and everything around me. ‘Why am I here?’ ‘Why am I doing this?’ ‘Is there meaning to any of this?’ I suppose the biggest question is ‘what if it never changes?” And that's how the song arose. My biggest fear is being stuck in a situation where I have no power to affect it. It's not a quiet feeling, it's not a creeper...I wake up one day and there it is; the gut wrenching need to scrap everything and start all over. I suppose life does happen in phases, which is why it's important to understand that no situation lasts forever, and there is never a situation where you have no power to affect it, but I wanted to capture this emotion in a song, so that I have it forever and can always use it in times where I need to be reminded of this.”
Still at a young age, Eli has crafted his own, solid vibe, gaining support from Best New Pop @ BBC Radio 1 and influential tastemakers, as well as Spotify playlist placements.
