WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM MOONTWIN – TSUNAMICAL

You know that feeling when a song just grabs you? Let’s introduce you to Moontwin’s latest single, “Tsunamical.” It starts with a seductive phone call to ease you into the track, if James Bond needed a new theme song, he’d give “Tsunamical” a call.

Moontwin is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Maple Bee (aka Melanie Garside) and Zac Kuzmanov, the genius behind the alternative global radio station XRaydio. Their story is one for the ages – long-time friends from London who kept their musical magic alive even when Zac moved back to Bulgaria after contracting ALS.

Let’s dive into the sound. “Tsunamical” blends gritty indie pop with a kind of raw, urban charm that only a London-born track can muster. Maple Bee’s vocals are the show’s main attraction – they’re rich, smoky, and dripping with attitude.

The production is tight, and crisp, and gives off a kind of DIY vibe that’s incredibly endearing. The beats are punchy, the guitar riffs are just dirty enough to make you feel a bit rebellious, and the whole thing comes together well. You can hear the influence of Zac’s radio background in the way the track flows seamlessly, almost like it’s been fine-tuned by someone who knows exactly how to keep an audience hooked.

But let’s keep it real – as good as “Tsunamical” is, while the seductive phone call opener is a brilliant hook, it might benefit from a bit more development later in the track. Maybe bring it back for a bridge or a breakdown to tie the whole theme together and give listeners that full-circle moment.

Also, while Maple Bee’s vocals are nice, there are moments where the instrumentation could shine a bit more. The gritty indie pop vibe is fantastic, but a bit more interplay between the vocals and the instruments could add an extra layer of depth.

Moontwin’s “Tsunamical” has the grit, the charm, and the kind of vocal performance that sticks with you. Maple Bee and Zac Kuzmanov have crafted something here so keep an eye on these two.
