Moyka Releases Debut Album “The Revelations of Love”: Streaming
- Norwegian singer-songwriter Monika Engeseth, aka Moyka released her debut album “The Revelations of Love” on October 22, 2021.
The album comprises 10-track, produced by Anders Kjær, Eirik Hella, Moyka, Sivert Hjeltnes Hagtvet and Vetle Junker.
At its core, the project is a concept album that spans the course of a relationship, telling a story of love and loss and how they intertwine.
Moyka explained, “The overall theme of the album is love. It starts with the discovery of a new romance, leading further into the different stages and situations you could be finding yourself in when experiencing feelings of love with someone as a young adult. I sing about falling in and out of love and the realization that sometimes it's not the way you thought it would be.”
On the album, she reflects on the various paths love can take, backed by her trademark textured synths and electronically-infused beats.
She shared on social media, “It has been a long journey piecing everything together and planning out how I want to tell this story as a whole. These songs are the revelations I've had these past few years and things that I'll always carry with me. I thought there wouldn't be a better way to share it than as an album.”
She continued, “Two years ago, I had my heart broken. This album is the story about how I reconstructed myself using all the pieces I found along the way 💘 10 tracks that tell the story of falling in and out of love and recovering a broken heart.”
She added, “To me, love is the most important feeling of them all. It's so existential 'cause it's what I think makes us human. Last year hit us so hard. I felt a lot of grief and sadness because of everything that happened in the world and in my life. As a person who feels a lot intensely, it's hard to not feel overwhelmed by everything. One thing that kind of woke up the flame in me again, was music that reminded me there is hope to feel good again. To feel love again.”
Also, she shared behind the songs of the album on YouTube, which will appear on a full album documentary film slated for a release on November 2, 2021.
