The Moniker – “I Wait”/”How?”

Let’s visit The Moniker’s pop factory again. On his way to his album he has released some more excellent tracks, where he as usual takes a bite here and there of pop history. “I Wait” is his own favourite from the album, he says, and the song that started the entire project. I am quite fond of  “How?” a glam rock-vibing song with T. Rex guitars, Bowie harmonies and a dramatic refrain with Beatles-choirs.

The Moniker – “Life Is Life”

Time to head over to The Moniker’s album workshop again, which I told you about a couple of weeks ago. “Life Is Life” is the next track, a wonderfully dramatic song with even stronger retro vibes, where it feels like Paul Anka, from the end of the fifties, is sitting on his shoulder.

The Moniker – “Everything Is Gonna Be Just Fine”

The Moniker, aka Daniel Karlsson, runs his own show now and cuts himself some slack both with the music itself and with the releases. Starting this week he will release a new single every two weeks until the 31st of August when all the songs off the new album “Don’t Fly Too High” will have been showcased. First up is the song “Everything Is Gonna Be Just Fine”, a beautiful pop track with a dramatic, a bit filmic verse and a brighter, somewhat romantic chorus. I get classic pop vibes from the sixties and the decades after that, which he soars through, creates his own mix from and adds a an excellent sense of pop melodies. And, not to forget, a great saxophone solo signed Magnus Hägglund in the end of the song.
