TVD Premiere:
Francie Moon,
“Present Tense”

PHOTO: AVTAR KAY | Traveling troubadour of light, Francie Moon, is a “free spirit” in every sense of the term. Traversing the country in her signature vintage van, Moon has gigged across the entire continental US, releasing a prolific series of lovely psych folk albums along the way.

“Present Tense” is the the first taste of a slightly more unhinged direction Moon has taken since releasing her celebrated self-titled EP in 2016. She whoops and hollers her way through a majestic, surf rock-tinged, shoegaze jungle of jangling tremolo guitars and wiry drums, dropping such altruistic words of wisdom as, “We’re all the same / 
So shine on me / All the oceans will join hands / And all the hills will sing songs
 / And all the clouds will cry tears of joy
 / Everywhere they belong

.”

Reflecting on the inception of the single, Moon affirms, “‘Present Tense’ is about the journey of being patient and loving with yourself when you’re getting back on track with who you are. A lot of people get caught up in the past and in the future, but this is about forgetting all that and just letting yourself be happy and free in the moment. I think when you finally let yourself feel that peace and freedom of being here now, fear and uncertainty usually wash away and sometimes doors start to open for the future you were really dreaming of anyway. It’s so important to feel good, and I think we can do that by not judging ourselves harshly. Easier said than done sometimes, but at least we’re all figuring life out together, all on the same sea, just different boats.”
