Earth Moon Earth – “New Mourning (Hummingbird)” (Yucca Valley, USA)
Who doesn’t like a good femme fatale movie? Suspenseful, sexy, mysterious, seductive, and unsuspecting. These five adjectives also describe “New Mourning (Hummingbird)”, the debut single from California outfit Earth Moon Earth.
The band calls their music cosmic rock, and there is an unquestionable space quality in their approach. However, there are also elements of film-noire, psychedelic folk, and acid jazz (namely in the rhythms), which heighten the song’s dramatic appeal. As the synths, keys, guitar, bass, and drums collide and front woman Gabriella Evaro’s sultry vocals emerge from the titillating atmosphere, an image of the femme fatale meeting her next conquest fills your mind. She whispers to him, “I’m falling down, falling down for you.” But the Hummingbird is our protagonist and villain, who must keep moving to never lose sight and never be in sight. Now this is how a band makes an introduction.
