Over the summer, a jam session held by Brooklyn’s rough and tumble jazz outfit Phony Ppl gave birth to a new track that is all lilting melody, tropical piano chorus, and refined verse. Dedicated to all souls who know what it is to have loved and lost, it’s titled “Why iii Love The Moon.” and it is our song of the day.
According to the band, the song is about how “The only thing ya boy can really be sure of is that the moon will be always there for ya boy. Every night. Like no human ever could.” (via FADER.) The track will be featured on the band’s new album, Yesterday’s Tomorrow, out next week on January 13. Listen above.
