Moon Pigeon - So Far (song review) |self-released, 2016|

Moon Pigeon is the result of collaborative venture between current and former members of various South Florida and Atlanta based bands. Having gathered the required experience, they've drawn interest of many modern and alternative rock fans all over the world through active on-line promotion as well as touring.

The opening song of Moon Pigeon's self-titled debut album brings a moody yet rocking vibe. 'So Far' begins with subtle and distinctive, new wave guitar tones, gradually joined by bass, drums and vocals developing into short verses and the chorus. Both the instrumental arrangements and the performance sound solid and give the track a solid foundation. As a contrast, Mike Hernandez on vocals brings a delicate, melancholic layer on the top the music - his voice may remind you of Richard Patrick from Filter.
The song is not deprived of a harsher tone, expressed though raspy, vibrating tones by Gaston de la Vega striking his loose bass strings. The arrangements are written to expose the players either separately or together, through in terms of modern rock, obviously the guitar played by Oscar Rodriguez is placed in the foreground. The drums could have sounded a bit heavier and deeper at some point, but Brandon Leidel played his parts very well, nevertheless. The band collaborates nicely, with no single sound coming on too strong.

Technically, 'So Far' is a short track and would certainly fit in a lot of media, from ads to movies. It should also do well on the radio. The song's mood feels melancholic - it brings feelings of loss, passing of time, letting go, self-realization. Thus, even if the theme is not necessarily related to love or passion, it'd still match a variety of emotionally touching, creative ideas. Does 'So Far' sound original? Not really, but Moon Pigeon certainly know what's attractive for contemporary audiences or certain demographics. In fact, many listeners enjoy what they've heard before, and that makes it easier for new bands to be taken under consideration too. There is a truly modern rock vibe present in the track - so if you are a fan of the genre, you will get hooked since the song is a solid piece from start to finish.

Moon Pigeon belongs to those bands that enjoy touring, so if you liked the sound of 'So Far', make sure you watch them perform live.
