Recovering from and accepting the loss of someone you love takes immense strength and continual work. Gal Musette’s new single, “Moment” conveys this idea of colossal devastation and loss. The track is an indie-pop blend, featuring exquisite vocals and exceptionally crafted lyrics. Lines such as, “Summon every chance I missed, relive every single kiss” express the inner battle of facing the reality that someone can be here one moment and gone the next, with no warning and no opportunity for an adequate goodbye. The foundations of “Moment” were established over seven years ago, written down by Gal and lost to time, later rediscovered and used as a tool to work through her grief. “Moment” touches on themes of regret, memory, mourning, time and love. Gal Musette’s stunning work as a lyricist, hypnotic vocals and overall passion as an artist set her apart as a unique musician with endless potential for music creation and inspirational storytelling.
“Moment” is a whimsical and heartbreaking track that features piano, bass, drums, synths and airy vocals to create a dreamy and unique sound. The song is a delightful blend of the indie, folk and pop genres. Gal’s mesmerizing vocals are layered and distorted at times, creating beautiful harmonies and underlaid vocalizations. The addition of steady bass and drum rhythms provide a creative contrast to the emotionally packed lyricism. Gal’s poignant and cathartic lyrics express her battle and eventual acceptance of a devastating loss in her life. “Moment” is an honest and heartfelt expression of emotion and healing that many listeners will resonate with. Despite the immense pain communicated through the track, Gal’s soothing voice comforts audiences and provides an overwhelming sense of calm and peace. The moving instrumentation, postproduction editing, lovely vocals and meaningful lyricism make “Moment” a musical experience that truly feels like taking a long-awaited breath after feeling suffocated by heavy emotion and hardship.
