US-based musician and self-proclaimed sun faery Dune Moss unveils a sublime piece of cinematic pop today, titled ‘Eyes Inside My Walls’.
If you’re a fan of artists like AURORA and Skott, then chances are high that you’ll also connect strongly with this single.
Both epic and haunting in its tone, the track showcases a production that is not only expertly constructed, but also deeply captivating and emotive to experience. Elaborating on the song’s lyrical inspiration, Moss explains:
“‘Eyes Inside My Walls’ is a song that reflects one of my deepest scars. I grew up in a religion that pinned me down and restricted many aspects of who I am. In my community, when you turned 8, you were baptised and told that you were at the ‘age of accountability’ with the responsibility to repent of all your sins. I was obligated to repent for being a normal, sexually curious teenager. All the men I confessed my sins to were older and compelled me to describe intimate details about what I did sexually. I was made to recount specifics about all encounters, including merely kissing boys. They twisted my innocence and turned it into shame. ‘Eyes Inside My Walls’, though, is not about shaming myself. Instead, it’s the raw feeling of anger and sadness for all the years I spent faithfully following their all-male leadership. My childhood and teenage years were spent with the patriarchy’s eyes watching every move I made. Here I am at 22, only now realising what was done. The patriarchal system within my church imprisoned my soul and influenced every decision I made. As an adult, I am finally on the journey to build myself sexually and spiritually as the woman I want to be from the ground up.”
Dune’s unique style of sound has resonated with a significant number of listeners from all over the world, resulting in her music being streamed more than a million times to date on Spotify alone.
