I came across this track walking down Seaport Boulevard. Soundcloud loaded, headphones on, the beat landed just in time with my footsteps. As the sky faded from orange to red and began to settle on purple, my mind wandered back to the girl I lived with as a younger man. The music seemed to recount the secrets that our wallpaper kept; the way her kiss let me escape reality, if only for a moment. Where is she now? I couldn’t tell you. But to remember her made me feel…warm.
I had to know the name of the track. “Lost Love”. Irony at its best.
Hailing from Tewksbury, MA, Baby Nu Moon has crossed the threshold from creating sounds to conjuring feelings with music. “Lost Love’s” washy, delayed vocals, paired with its tasteful piano licks, fills space with a dreamlike sonic aura. Baby Nu Moon is certainly no stranger to emotional soundscapes. Their Soundcloud demos feature deeper piano lines under spoken word content that most everyone is familiar with, but that is rarely discussed openly. They recall the wringing of heartbreak; the pains of feeling used. With this new direction in Lost Love, however, Baby Nu Moon has proven that their musical talent is technically versatile and extremely emotionally ambitious. Please don’t keep us waiting too long for your next track! – Luke Pelletier
