EDITORS’ NOTES

On their third album, the L.A. trio Moonchild mine their hazy surroundings to craft a hypnotically cosmic neo-soul record laced with summery vibes. Amber Navran’s ethereal vocals sit dreamily atop Max Bryk and Andris Mattson’s chill strings, analog synths, and psychedelic chimes, while sampled birdsong and waterfall field recordings stud the horizon. “Cure” has a jazzy, Zero 7–esque groove—all breezy melodies and breathy vocals—while “6am” riffs on Erykah Badu–style funk, replete with deep, pulsing bass and caramel-smooth refrains.

This Is Moonchild

ByronDevon,

Back with their 3rd studio album "Voyager" I swear this is like a sequel to their last album "Please Rewind". This album is more like "Press Play". There will be no need to skip a single track on this album as with every song gives you more and more! The only thing I can say bad about this album is that when it ends after "Let You Go", your response will be, "THAT'S IT!!" In frustration that you wish the album would've been more than the 13 tracks Moonchild provides. It can be worth a double disc album, which I would not hesitate to spend my money on! I will not get into detail about the album to ruin surprises, but I know there will be more than one favorite track on this album. From what we may know "Cure" teased the listeners for more tracks to be released early or even the album itself. For me it's "6am", "The List", "Door Closing", "Run Away", & "Change Your Mind" that has a grasp on my mind! You actually get lost in these songs! If I had to pick a favorite... It would probably be "Change Your Mind". I promise you will not be disappointed with this album if you like the smooth essence of good music... "Voyager" will provide! Thanks for providing quality sounds Moonchild, the best has yet to come! GRAMMY's🏆-@byrondevon

Amazing

Raaaawwwwwrrr,

I saw them in concert on 5/14 at the Sol lounge in Carson. They were amazing. After the concert I was able to purchase their CD. My goodness!!!! The entire album is breathtaking. But 6am puts me in the mood. You are in for a treat!!

About Moonchild

Alternative R&B trio Moonchild are known for their spaced-out, Soulquarians-inspired grooves and the wispy, at-ease vocals of Amber Navran. The band's lineup consists of Navran (also a clarinetist and saxophonist) with fellow multi-instrumentalists Max Bryk (keyboards, saxophone, clarinet) and Andris Mattson (keyboards, trumpet, flügelhorn). The Los Angeles-based trio met at the University of Southern California and debuted the year of their formation with the self-released Be Free (2012). Moonchild subsequently joined the roster of the independent U.K. label Tru Thoughts, where they continued to refine their sound with Please Rewind (2015) and Voyager (2017), the latter of which added harp and other stringed instrumentation to their blissed-out compositions. They've opened for the likes of Stevie Wonder and Georgia Anne Muldrow and, true to their genre-crossing appeal, have been featured together on recordings headlined by Detroit musician Brandon Williams ("Leave Love Be") and hip-hop producer Tall Black Guy ("I Will Never Know"). Their output has been sampled, as heard on Mac Miller's "Two Matches." Outside Moonchild, Navran, Bryk, and Mattson have worked as both solo artists and collaborators. ~ Andy Kellman
