FRESH: ‘Sun Fights The Moon’ – GEA

GEA releases “Sun Fights the Moon”

Finnish singer GEA launches her brand new single, “Sun Fights The Moon”, today with her usual, striking vocal approach and powerful electro production – think Enya meets Ofra Haza. “Sun Fights The Moon” celebrates Nordic darkness, the seasonal battle between day and night. It was written during lunar and solar eclipses, and released in between the ones happening right now. The timing of it is also connected to the approaching winter solstice, when the sun begins to gradually win again.

GEA made her debut in 2016 with “Wind” and has released a string of ethereal and humanistic song on a regular basis ever since. Her 2020 releases include “Brightness Of Stars” and “Predefined”. GEA toured three continents in 2019 having earned a Hollywood International Golden Film’s Award for Best Editing for her first self-produced music video in 2017. Her music has also been featured on Netflix. “Sun Fights the Moon” will feature on her forthcoming album, “Call For A Snake”.

GEA describes the collection as “A stirring and soothing album that invites the listener on a spiritual adventure”. The album follow on from her previous releases, “Butterflies” in 2017 and the EP “Snow” in 2018. I looks already to be her most accomplished work yet with the quality of songs like “Sun Fights the Moon” and the gloriously atmospheric “Brightness Of Stars”, which sounds tribal and rural, a million miles from the commercial world of GEA’s music and digital releases.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
