Australian singer-songwriter Gilli Moon just released her latest album, “Beautiful Mess, Vol. 2.” This year saw the first volume released in January for the delight of our ears. Both albums come together to represent the beautiful mess that is life. Moon pens passionate and emotion-filled lyrics that pair greatly with the genre-defying instrumentation. With album releases like these, it’s no wonder that Gilli Moon has the great reputation she does in the music industry.
One of her latest songs comes in the form of “Falling” featuring artist CaiNo.
To describe the song “Falling,” in one word, it would be dreamy. As soon as the song starts, it puts you in a trance. With a lo-fi and chill beat in the background, the instrumental itself could belong on a chill vibes / studying playlist.
Gilli Moon shares of the track: “I wanted to write a song about unbridled passion: about honestly sharing my feelings for another. Simple. I teamed up with super artist, songwriter and producer, CaiNo for this. We wrote, recorded and mixed virtually in, like, a week. The Music Video also uses imagery of dancers showing this electricity and passion between two people. I really enjoy using movement both in visual and in beat to help build the ‘dance’ in relationships.”
CaiNo also notes: “The music is supposed to feel like it wraps warmly around the listener. Gilli’s smooth vocals complete the dream-like hypnotic ambient song about the feeling of Falling for someone. Every nuance of the song was meant to simulate the floating effect that falling can bring. The listener is invited to come along with Gilli and I on an expedition through pure Love. The gentle in-and-out vibe of the rap vocal going from melodic to lyrical also explores the sensual energy of those moments.”
Listen in here!
This song truly encapsulates the very beginning stages of a relationship. With Gilli singing about how her guard is coming down, she admits that she’s falling for the person this song is about. CaiNo comes in after the second verse – his deep voice paired with his quick lyrical rap style perfectly juxtaposes the instrumental background. With both Gilli and CaiNo on this track, the duo managed to create a sensual and passionate song.
This song deviates from Gilli’s indie norm, but in the most amazing way. This song makes you want to fall … maybe not in love, but definitely “in like,” with someone.
