Jade Moon – “HOUSE”


Featuring subdued acoustics that arise into a ghostly synth=laden glow, “HOUSE” is a chilling track that conveys the grief of loss, while also emphasizing the importance of “inviting people in.” The track comes via Jade Moon, the project of North Carolina-based artist Raja Blankenship.

Understated acoustics and bird-chirping drives into the devastating “then you went away,” signaling a higher-pitched, more vulnerable feeling. “Wherever you are, there’s always space for you within our hearts,” they let out, building into a textured, atmospheric second half with spacey synth infusions — casting an eerie imprint. “HOUSE” is an emotive, gripping showing from Jade Moon.

Blankenship elaborates: “This song was written about my late father while I was sitting outside. I wanted this song to reflect the importance of inviting people in, letting people know that they are important.”

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