South Londoner Eli Moon shares vibrant new single “Phases”, the first single taken from his upcoming EP Angels Devils & EmptyVessels.
Despite his young age Eli Moon has already found his signature sound, combining elements of rock and electronic music with contemporary R&B, and he does it brilliantly. On his latest offering “Phases”, the rising star switches it up by delivering another stunning and more energetic vocal performance than previous single “killmeinmysleep” over a vibrant and polished production that starts with a punchy bass line reminiscent of dark-electro pop songs. With its mainstream appeal and infectious hook, “Phases” should generate a buzz for his upcoming EP.
“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 ofthis” — Eli Moon.
