Get lost in Eli Moon’s infectious R’n’B with new single ‘Phases’

South Londoner Eli Moon shares his new single ‘Phases’ today, released on MERIDAN, co-written and produced by MOJAM.

‘’Phases’, is the first single from Moon’s new EP ‘Angels Devils & Empty Vessels’.  Moon has already found his signature sound despite his young age, combining classic rock star poeticism with contemporary R&B.

Phases’ is a unique piece of contemporary R&B. It captures the listener’s attention since its start with a punchy bass line reminiscent of dark-electro pop songs and Eli’s deep vocals amongst a polished production.

Moon quotes on the track: “ 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 of this.”

Moon has garnered strong support from Best New Pop @ BBC Radio 1, Spotify Playlists idk, Fresh Finds, NMF, Alt R&B and tastemakers Notion, Wonderland, Clash, LOBF, Dork, Complex, Earmilk, Euphoria and Dork.
