NZ singer-songwriter Josie Moon is back with timeless track 'Más Que Nada'
New Zealand singer-songwriter Josie Moon creates hypnotic, timeless music with an edgy pop vibe. Not shy of the stage, Moon has clocked live performances alongside Tash Sultana, Chelsea Jade, Physical and Thomston; and has made festival appearances including Rhythm & Vines (Main Stage) and The Others Way. Moon’s commercial debut EP ‘Rose Tinted’ (2018) was well received by critics and fans alike – Achieving 4 stars in the NZ Herald, #1 iTunes Top 200 Pop Chart (Czech Republic), ‘After Hours’ reaching #9 on the NZ Viral 50 Chart; and TV/Radio support from MTV, The Edge, ZM, RNZ National & George FM. Back with her strongest effort to date, ‘Más Que Nada’ keeps the momentum going for the Wellington based singer-producer as one of the most exciting new talents.
Explaining her thoughts on the release, Josie shares, “Más Que Nada started off as a quiet love song to someone I fell for over the internet. We both had a couple of languages in common but they sent me a message that said “te amo más que nada.” I don’t speak much Spanish at all but I suppose that made me romanticise the phrase. Speaking about our situation outside of my native language felt like it added a layer of privacy. It kept it a little secret I could hold to myself. The song developed into the idea of loving someone beyond geographical, social, personal barriers, in a safe corner of a world of your making. The song is also paired with another song on the album “rain on me” which delves into some of the harsher realities of what happened next.”
