Los Angeles alt-rock singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and novelist Moses Mikheyev returns with his new single ‘Black Sky, White Moon’, a more gentle approach from his previous material showcasing a more sensitive, emotive side to his songwriting.
Taken from the upcoming debut album I Only Have A Hundred Years To Love You, Mikheyev once again demonstrates his impeccable abilities as both a songwriter and a performer. Layers of intertwining acoustic and electric guitar and Moses’ delay tinted vocals dance around the soundscape, as splashes of reverb atmospherics add a dreamy tint to the soundscape. While understated and gentle, ‘Black Sky, White Moon’ also possesses an affecting commercial appeal with accessible lyricism and catchy vocal lines seeing the rocker move away from his heavier side and further towards the singer-songwriter element of his repertoire.
Speaking about the meaning behind the single Moses Explains:
“It’s a song I wrote for a girl I fell in love with during the summer of 2018. It’s a celebration of love, magic, and all-things-beautiful. I wrote the chorus in Los Angeles, the verses on a plane ride to Portland, and all of the acoustic guitar parts in Spokane. I met the girl in Seattle”
The upcoming album I Only Have A Hundred Years To Love You is being produced by Brandon Zano, David Kershenbaum (Grammy Nominee known for his work with Duran Duran, Bryan Adams, and Tracy Chapman among others) and David Gavrishov with a planned release date in late 2023.
