Monica Moser shows a new side to her artistry with the release of her new single “No Sound”.
The cover art is a print by Sadie Birchfield called “Feeling Like My Heart Isn’t Here.” 20% of the proceeds from this print store go straight to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. You can purchase this one and others like it here.
Why we dig it:
This is a new side of Monica’s artistry & style: the live tracked single is vibey, ambient, and features unique arrangements and big vocals.
The lyrics also speak directly to the generation of twenty somethings and this stage of life that can be confusing and burdensome.

The title is “Feeling Like My Heart Isn’t Here” & it couldn’t be a better fit as artwork for my upcoming single No Sound. ••• I picked this song back up after about ten years. It was actually the first song I ever put out on the internet. myspace to be exact (LOL). i recorded it myself on garageband, through the internal mic on my family’s macbook desktop. good. times. i (obviously) rewrote the majority of it but tried to maintain the beauty of that time when i wasn’t overthinking lyrics. a time when i didn’t really understand song structure, or the importance of universality, accessibility, or central themes. ••••• i’ve been really leaning into this feeling in my writing lately about the phase of life i find myself and a lot of the people i care about in. this confusing, unstructured, exciting, frustrating, freeing, & uncomfortable phase. this is kinda my angsty early twenties anthem & i hope it can be yours too. it’s about growing up & the erosion of innocence that comes with that. The day we tracked vocals was the day after the Las Vegas shooting. I almost cancelled because I was feeling very distracted and heavy hearted. But I’m so glad I didn’t because not only is music a catharsis and can at times feel like the only thing that makes sense, but we must also continue to be a part of it, even when the unity and emotions it can invoke is under attack. I’ll be sharing photos from some lovely photographer friends to help me visually walk you through the song. ••• No Sound is yours Nov. 10th 🖤
No Sound is available now on Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud & Apple Music.
