Jessica Stretton – “Behind the Moon”


Jessica Stretton’s debut single “Behind the Moon” infuses modern pop with a futuristic allure, while maintaining a sense of intimacy. “I really want this song to be a musical journey of thoughts and dreams where the listener can lose themselves in whichever way they choose,” explains the artist, who cites influences like James Blake, Burial, and Lorde. The track’s initial effect-laden vocal robotics give way to a more natural, tender vocal cue alongside gentle piano. These two styles alternate cohesively throughout, certainly exuding a James Blake-esque mode of production. “Behind the Moon” is a promising showing from a new artist with a clear grasp of both melodic appeal and atmospheric development.

“Behind the Moon” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2019’ Spotify playlist.
