Electro-Pop Artist TROVE Delivers Dreamy Reflection on "Higher Than The Moon"
High and low — the farthest extremes of human emotion but of distance, too. This warring duality finds itself cropping up endlessly in our lives in different combinations, long stretches of goodness inevitably cut by hard times.
On his new single, Australian singer-songwriter TROVE explores what this means in terms of people and relationships. Armed with a past in which his life intertwined with another’s in either happenstance or fate (you decide), TROVE crafts a slick electro-pop anthem weighed down with poignant contemplation, though its quiet profundity is masked by sparkling beats and an addictive arrangement.
We asked TROVE to tell us a little about the track — you can hear him eloquently explain the inspiration and production process below.
“Higher Than The Moon” opens right away with TROVE’s breathy croon singing “I’m flying NY to LA but there’s so much to say” above deep synth blooms blossoming up from the track’s basic foundation. Soon, the twinkle and plink of keys dance behind the thin, airy vibrato of TROVE’s voice. The next phase of the song comes quick: suddenly, a rapid-fire percussive line joins, steady throbs pulsing along like a heartbeat while other elements sparkle in the background. Every once in a while, the dance beat dips out in favor of TROVE’s aching delivery and faint trails of synth floating like apparitions among a dreamy electro-pop soundscape. “Higher Than The Moon” moves like this, softly and seamlessly, through different waves of gentle production. It’s got the “close your eyes and sway” kind of vibe to it, never in-your-face about its jangling pop beats, just a mellow track destined for replay.
