Shelly Bhushan - Moon

Single review by karla@thesoundofconfusion.com


If there's one thing New York City is renowned for it is its cultural diversity and cultural movements. The city's importance and rather large budget for music, film, theatre, dance and visual art has seen the creative types drawn there like moths to a flame with a longing to find a place to unleash the dream in their hearts. New York City is exactly where half Mexican, half Indian, but born and raised Texan songstress Shelly Bhushan currently resides, cultivating her talent and living her dream. Her latest masterpiece is entitled 'Moon' and is taken from her most recent critically acclaimed album, 'Something Out of Nothing'. 'Moon' is a haunting, sparse piano ballad that is a little bit Agnes Obel, a little bit Missy Higgins, and a lot of soulful, wistful Shelly Bhushan.

The lyrics are intimate and heartfelt, personal and tender, and are sung with such a vivacity and yearning that is intensified by the track's intimate, accompanying official music video. Portraying the singer herself tinkering away at a piano with her lovely wedding ring in sight, then close-ups of her face, the video is personal, almost intrusive if not for being broken up with fiery sparklers, shots of the city, and shadows in the shape of stars and moons. It's very clear that Shelly Bhushan is a gifted musician who loves what she does and loves her partner very much. We hope she continues to make this type of honest, beautiful, music for a long time to come.
