Ontario, Canada’s garage rock phenom Billy Moon is coming at you today with the new track “S L Y”. A slow, casual track, “S L Y” actually stands for “Someone Like You”, and it’s a supportive, beautiful, and fun track that highlights that which makes people stand apart from each other. The vocals are swoon-worthy, as they cascade along the more rough guitar chords, making this track feel raw and simple, despite the immense amount of talent that went into it.
Billy Moon had quite a bit to say about the track itself.
It’s a song that was stuck in my head for about a year before I actually wrote it down and made it real. It was inspired by a lot of Billy Bragg songs, I love how he can write these powerful political pieces but can also do the some of the most tender love songs. To simplify, the song’s meant for people who get caught in downward spirals and feel trapped inside of them. I see some people (mostly girls) who have these awful self-harm scars and it really makes me sad, because no one deserves to feel that way about themselves. We all deserve love.
Keep up with Billy Moon right here.
