Monica Guardado – “Scorpio Moon”


A bluesy rock success with expanding charisma, “Scorpio Moon” is a new single from Nashville-based artist Monica Guardado. “‘Scorpio Moon’ is about reclaiming my power and agency against someone who wronged me – through moody, hooky guitars, and funky drums,” she says. “It’s also the first bilingual song I’ve ever written (english – spanish in the bridge) and it feels really good to represent my latin heritage through this track.”

“Scorpio Moon” builds captivatingly from the smoky verses to the hooky, organ-laden “can you feel it coming through?” charisma. The Spanish-language bridge proves especially compelling, injecting a sweltering psych-rock ferocity into the organ-led refrain. Guardado continues to make waves in the Nashville scene, and the moody, compelling “Scorpio Moon” is exemplary of why.

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