AUDIO: Astronaut Husband & Blue Boredom – “Moon Songs”
Indie folk artist Astronaut Husband teamed up with Spain-based songwriter Blue Boredom for a concept album, centered around the low-hanging sphere in the night sky. The moon represents a pale ray of meaning against darkness, and the two artists explore that idea with gentle texture, melancholy intricacy, and contemplative wonder. As the moon is clung onto as a symbol of fortitude, they trade off tranquil vocals that contrast bleak and emotive lyrics of loneliness, depression, and death. It’s a beautifully metaphoric release from Astronaut Husband and Blue Boredom about difficult conversations with the personified world.
