Premiere: Luna Keller – “We Are All Mad Here”
“We Are All Mad Here” is a vibrant, melodic track whose lyrics relay the power of acceptance, and rejoicing in our own idiosyncrasies. “When I first read Alice in Wonderland my favorite characters were the Mad Hatter and his friends,” the track’s creator, Luna Keller, says. “They were different and certainly mad, yet they were together drinking tea and embracing each others peculiarities. Wouldn’t the world be a better place, if we would do this?”
Keller further describes the track as “a song for everyone, that invites you to be a part of a colorful happy crowd that doesn’t judges or discriminates you.” In lyrics touching on some people’s unique attributes – “Some are mad about money, some are crazy and funny / Not strange, just unique, we are all mad differently.” Over this is a carnivalesque melody with a strident melodic bounce, with guitars and twinkling keys accompanying Keller’s confident vocals. The track marks the second single release from the forthcoming Alice Is in Love with the Mad Hatter EP.
“We Are All Mad Here” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2019’ Spotify playlist.
