Welcome to another incredible Space Discovery!
This time we will introduce a duo that has teamed up for a while to give life to a stunning project of electro/synth-pop with 80s notes: a hearty welcome to MOON AND ARIES!
This project started when Tom (producer) and Jordana (singer) found each other on social media, liked each other’s work, and became friends, realizing that they had very similar tastes, and decided to start working together.
The amazing musical arrangements of Tom meet the beautiful vocals of Jordana, and we can say they definitely give the listener something to remember with their unique style.
Their latest album is the result of their hard work during the past year and their love for music: it contains 9 tracks in total and is called “The Arrival”, released just a couple of months ago.
This album has a retro concept projected into the future, with its vintage sounds and dreamy vocals, it will bring you on a journey to space with its incredible sound.
Our favorite track on the album is called “Sneak Preview”, and as the title says, we’ll give you a sneak preview of this song!!
We liked this one a lot because of its paced rhythm and the nostalgic but compelling melodies, letting us embrace a feeling of freedom and relaxation during the listening.
The track starts with an arpeggio synth, followed by a wind effect and Jordana’s vocalizing that add excitement to this soothing intro. The drums enter the track adding groove along with a rhythmic bassline, all of this garnished with some ethereal pads and beautiful keys that play high notes. The vocal performance here is what really makes the difference, making Moon And Aries style one of a kind. This is something different and quite rare to find, these guys are definitely the hidden gems that everyone should find at some point.
And now let’s see what they have to share with us with our usual Space Discovery Interview!
Welcome to Space Jordana and Tom!!
Welcome to Space Moon and Aries!!
Congratulations on your album release! Briefly present yourself to our Space Travellers!
Briefly introduce yourself to the Space Travellers….
Hello fellow Galactic surfers, we are Jordana – the singer and lyric writer, Tom – the musician and composer, and together we become “The Synth Pop Opera Duo, Moon and Aries” Our music is infused with nostalgic melodies and futuristic concepts. We have recently released our debut album, The Arrival.
What’s our favorite track off the album and why?
The Arrival album is a concept album, and the song The Arrival, is the spiritual resolution to all of the songs leading up to it. So it’s definitely our favorite. Plus, both Tom and I love trip hop music so much, and that’s the lane this song mainly drives in. We love the seductive beats and poetic lyrics that pulsate through that style of music.
What are our plans for the future ?
Release more music and perform live. We just released a new single Take Me Home, from our summer Ep Paradise. Tom and I love making music, so that’s what we do. Yet we live on opposite sides of the World, Tom being in Germany, and I’m in Canada. But we believe in the music we make, and know it will carry us to our desired destinations.
If You and Tom had a time machine, which era would we travel to and bring out music along?
Well, we bring our favorite eras to the present time. So if we could then reverse that, and go back to the period of time we are mostly influenced by, I’d say somewhere between “1975 and 1985” I think we would fit in nicely. Also, so many were attending concerts and festivals at that time and really living it up, obviously was more affordable too. Would have been amazing to be a part of that movement. Was a time where music really themed the collective awakening. But we are happy to do this during these times too. Just the industry is more controlled and operated by certain people who might not want this level of awareness in music. So Tom and I remain independent and make the music we are inspired and guided to share. Thanks for the interview 🙂
