pearl moth – “Green Visitors”


Italian artist pearl moth unveils a climactic rock mystique on “Green Visitors,” developing from eerie contemplation into rousing waves of guitar distortion. Trickling guitars exude a sleepy charm to start, with the lush vocals setting the scene of “green visitors from Mars,” who aim to renovate the moon — asking the question: “How would we feel if the Moon suddenly had eyes and observed everything we do?”

The artist further describes the track as “a song about aliens and alienation and about living under a Moon with eyes that see what goes on in the dark.” Its mid-point dazzles with a heady range of warming guitar distortion and shimmering backing, guiding seamlessly back into the more serene eeriness of the title-touting sequence. “Green Visitors” is a compelling showcase from pearl moth, who impressed in December with the track “A Curtain in the Woods.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
