I’ve made no secret how much in love I am with Eli Moon’s artistry. A new EP is released today and with it comes the single ‘Stasis’, a song that gives a feeling of introspection and solitariness.
“To be in a state of Stasis is to experience a slowing down of the normal flow of a bodily fluid such as blood… and I wrote the song at a time where my life had completely stagnated. My self-destructive behaviour had finally taken its toll and I was now stuck inside my house with nobody to talk to, nobody to meet and nobody who wanted to know me. I had taken my relationships for granted, and was now no use to anyone or anything. I guess that’s where the reference to the ‘fallen angel’ in the chorus comes from. The devil, the once trusted ‘guardian cherub,’ had abused his power and therefore was destined to endure eternal suffering. I felt like I had experienced a ‘fall’ of this nature. I had everything and everyone I wanted, but this only fed my ego and led me to make endless bad choices. I guess the song is an admittance of what I had become. It was like I was standing on a burning ship to hell, watching the world that was once mine, flourish without me and it was all my fault.”
Taken from the new EP ‘Angels, Devils and Empty Vessels’ which is out now via MERIDAN.
