The languid guitar accompaniment and wistful vocals of Anna Moon’s folk-oriented “Holy Water” the second single taken from upcoming EP, Psychic Visions , like title track predecessor, make for the optimum soundscape for the singer-songwriter’s intricate story of human experience. “Holy Water” sees Moon interrogate women’s societal roles and celebrate the way in which they liberate themselves from them, both individually and collectively. “It’s probably my favourite song on the EP,” Moon says. “I’m so proud of it. And I’m proud of the message it holds. It’s my small contribution to the discussion on the power of women.”
Colorado native, Moon, who made strides in the indie scene in recent years as the frontwoman of dreampop group, Moxi, sought inspiration for her upcoming solo EP in the duality of the small town she grew up in. The at once, still, remote Littleton had “equally gorgeous nature right in your backyard,” Moon explains, “but there’s also a darker undercurrent and heaviness to it.”
“There’s this park near my childhood home that has this huge tree on top of a hill that my sister and I would go to all the time, and if the record could look like something, it would be that park in the winter,” she continues. It’s a scene ripe for the expansive candour she’s teased so far of Psychic Visions, an immersive odyssey through the path she’s walked to become the artist she is today.
Moon’s project Psychic Visions is due for release on October 21st. Get another dreamy flavour of it right now by listening to “Holy Water” below…
