Shannen Moser gets poetic on the new single “The Sun Still Seems to Move”
After releasing her new album I’ll Sing last fall, Philly folk artist Shannen Moser is back with a new song. Recorded with Eric Muth, “The Sun Still Seems to Move” is a sweeping acoustic ballad that builds in intensity as Moser sings,”My head, my heart, my bones, my body / Say you’re fucked, say you’re sorry.”
The song also includes a short spoken word segment in the middle that Moser says is the first poem she’s written in her adult life. The singer-songwriter is also to credit for all of the instrumental parts on the song, which is accompanied by a video that features pieced-together shots of soothing nature scenes.
Shannen Moser will play some shows with Bellows next month, with an appearance at PhilaMOCA on March 8. Tomorrow, February 28, she’ll be at The Music Ward with Active Bird Community, and later this spring she’ll play two nights at Boot & Saddle opening for Kevin Devine and John K. Samson on May 10 and 11. Find tickets and information on all shows on the XPN Concert Calendar.
