Jonny Ong – “A Moment of Sunshine”


London-based artist Jonny Ong delivers a vibrant bounciness throughout “A Moment of Sunshine,” a catching new single. Playful piano brightness and “bids me good morning,” lyrical introductions drive into a refreshing brass-led accompaniment. Ong explains that the track “centres around a love that doesn’t always last, but the moment is beautiful, like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.”

“She is something special, can’t you see the magic in her eyes?” Ong asks as the brass kicks into gear. A rousing guitar-fronted “she holds the key to my heart,” sequence finds lovely bolstering by the reflective, soulful vocal backing. Meanwhile, Ong’s crisp and emotive vocal lead reminds of Damon Albarn, tonally. Concluding with a convergence of rock-forward, title-touting charisma, “A Moment of Sunshine” is a shining success that can help take away the pain and inject some sunshine into a cloudy day.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
