Gal Musette Shares Long-Lost New Single, “Moment”
Gal Musette, the pop noir singer-songwriter and piano virtuoso, has recently released a new single called “Moment” from her upcoming album Pendulum out this summer.
“Moment” is a result of Musette’s serendipitous encounter with the lyrics she had written seven years ago, which she had lost and almost forgotten about.
“Moment was a song I wrote one verse for 7 years ago, but at some point I lost the paper with lyrics on it and over time almost completely forgot the melody,” Musette confides. “Years later when I experienced a significant personal loss, I was struggling to express my grief and fell into a crippling season of writer’s block. By a stroke of serendipity, the lyric reappeared on a folded piece of paper in my glove compartment which triggered a memory of the melody, and led full circle to my finishing the song and beginning to let go.”
Musette’s cinematic vocals sing bittersweet melodies over intoxicatedly esoteric chamber pop soundscapes in “Moment”. Her graceful approach to melody-driven indie-folk has captured audiences all over Southern California, and she has collaborated with renowned artists such as Rufus Wainwright and toured with The Magnetic Fields, Macy Gray, and Donavon Frankenreiter.
