Share this article

    (October 30, 2021) With a downbeat groove and whispery vocals, the LA-trio Moonchild (Amber Navran, Andris Mattson, and Max Bryk) have become favorites of soul, jazz and pop fans around the world through their four albums. And now as the group plans for its fifth album Starfruit (out February 11), we get a cool sneak peek with “Too Good.”

    Producer, vocalist and lyricist Amber Navran says about the song, “’Too Good’ is about being wrapped up in the high of love, and yet fighting off that sneaking suspicion that something terrible is around the corner, waiting to take it all away,” 

    Filled with gentle guitar, drum, flute and flugelhorn, the song takes its ethereal tone from Navran’s breathy lead vocal, giving a cool nighttime vibe that is working for us on a chilly October evening.

    It’s always great hearing Moonchild, and “Too Good” gets us excited for the rest of Starfruit. Check it out below.
