In January 2021, Icelandic/Russian duo Pale Moon shared their well-received single Happier. They’re now back with Dusty Road, a folk-country song. Solid vocals rise over creative and captivating instrumentation. The verses building towards a cool chorus. The lyrics are, as expected, distinctive.
Never afraid to explore unmentioned desires, in Dusty Road Pale Moon gently introduces us to the story of a young girl wishing to escape from her uninspiring origins and explore beyond the borders of her dull and restrictive hometown.
“I moved from my parents when I was 17 to live with a boyfriend I found on the internet in a different city. I couldn’t wait to get away from the prison-like life I was living. This desire to get into trouble sparked the story for Dusty Road, an intuitive journey, a search for love and it’s seemingly inevitable failures and continuing sources of inspiration.” To sum it up, the song is about teenage rebellion and longing for travel.”
