Sitting down to write about the latest from an artist named Chris Moon, “Prettier In Pink,” I really have no idea what to say. Something about the gentle blend between autotune and such candid, mesmeric lyrics strikes a chord in me that I didn’t even know existed, and while the easy comparison here is Frank Ocean, I feel as though resorting to such doesn’t really give the art a chance to breathe.
Rather, it’s the subtle humor and refreshing soul of “Prettier In Pink” that gives this song its allure. Considering the very opening lyrics that I’m sure I’ll be singing all day long, “I stay in pink / Like my name was Killa Cam,” Moon is able to grab the listener’s ear from the song’s first seconds, maintaining this attention throughout. From there, the energy of “Prettier In Pink” grows and morphs as the song progresses, and as a result, you simply can’t turn your head away, as Moon constantly seems to present something new and exciting with each successive line.
Needless to say, I highly recommend that all of our readers out there give this one a listen. Chris Moon is an artist to keep an eye out for, so stream his new single below and let us know what you think in the comments!
