Monroe Moon – Just a Little Bit Longer | Transcend the Body
Just a Little Bit Longer is an indie rock track with ethereal guitar and a solid drumbeat at the base. Monroe Moon is an indie pop duo, seemingly delving into the peripheries of the genre and reviving it. It comprises of the High Priestess Of The Infinite Empyrean, and the Old English North Atlantic Pirate. Well, that’s what they go by – and it gives you a very good sense of where their music takes you.
As the track plays, a gentle melodic rock rhythm gives you a hug. The instrumental arrangement is an absolute delight on this one. You barely realise when the acoustic guitar melts into the electric. And it has me wondering, why won’t more artists give the drumset its due respect? But Monroe Moon surely does, choosing to end on the beats that have carried you around through the track.
Talking of the mood, the song leverages a captivating, slow-release sort of delivery. It delves into the themes of what seems to be infidelity, betrayal, and a consequent skip of the heart. The vocalist’s sound reverberates smoothly across the musical ambience, like smoke on water. And then you’re swaying before you know it. This one is definitely going into the repeat cycle, so do check it out!
