As it's Halloween coming up I thought I'd move this weird and spooky song up my playlist. It is about the awful tricks your own mind plays at night to keep you awake! Hope you like the video Paddy and I made for the album launch!

Chandra Moon - composition, vocals, guitar
Paddy Uglow - Piano
Richard Bloom - arrangement, prodution, pads, effects, guitar






Why can’t they ever wait until the breaking of the day?
I try to block them out but still they come.
From the past until tomorrow, they have to have their say,
Find awful ways to keep me on the run


Shadow puppets silhouetted on a screen
Trouble me at night won’t let me sleep.
Shadow puppets silhouetted on a screen
Trouble me at night won’t let me sleep.


I close my eyes and always try to focus on my breath,
Drown my thoughts within the shining light
But they crowd around the margins of my mind and speak of death
My sanity has flown it's taken flight.


Shadow puppets silhouetted on a screen
Trouble me at night won’t let me sleep.
Shadow puppets silhouetted on a screen
Trouble me at night won’t let me sleep.


(break)


Shadow puppets silhouetted on a screen
Trouble me at night won’t let me sleep.
Shadow puppets silhouetted on a screen
Trouble me at night won’t let me sleep.

Song Comments

The Allure
stellar track. very alluring and intriguing. unique colors


Psyche Folk
Beguiling and strange song with a haunting n haunted vibe..Hints of dark psychedelia layered with ghostly apparitions and whispering voices from other worlds coming uninvited into ours..Very cool and evocative


IAC GEMS
Shadow Puppets by CHANDRA MOON is a wonderfully atmospheric track.. Instantly creating a strange late night space from its opening cool broken arpegioed chords.. Its poetic lyric deals with the disturbing hallucinogenic effect on a mind that can't sleep, as all the 'normal' conscious barriers are let down,allowing unguarded n unedited thoughts and feelings from the unconscious to come flooding in.. Theres more than a little of the spirit of Nick Drake here in its gentle soulfulness and soft incantation As a song its instantly enjoyable and moves beautifully n naturally..Particularly love the chromatic rising 'margins of my mind' melody that reappears a couple of times throughout the song that adds a strangely charming almost childlike quality to the song..


WTOZ RADIO
Cool spacey vibe on this track from Chandra Moon - nice open chords flowing free - on WTOZ


atmosphere
I usually place instrumentals here, but on occasion I add something that is atmospheric and ambient. this one captures all of that element. Cool work from Chandra and her musician associates

always a treat to hear Chandra sing and hear those magical lyrics reach out in this mysterious work and sparkle like stars. shimmering and shiny , wonderful song.

I have heard this before I am sure. maybe somewhere,perhaps here or maybe as a different mix. anyways it is full of mystery and mysterious sounds images and musical shadows reflected off the wonderful vocals and instrumentation , very engaging
