You make my soul sing, even while you sing to it melodies I’ve been waiting my whole life to hear.
Sit me in an empty road with trees and all things green lining its sides. I’d like to lay there for a while with you and ponder life. Maybe hold your hands and stare into your eyes.
Let me ink a love letter onto your skin.
Until my love is coursing through your veins.
Tonight was Moons of Mar’s premiere show at Molly Malone’s Irish Pub in Hollywood. Who is Moons of Mar’s, you ask? Moons of Mars is a talented duo comprised of brothers Giovan and Mario Polanco, joined by Jacob Allen on the drums, Max Mitchell on keys and Phil Schorr on electric guitar. The brothers are Los Angeles natives, who have been writing and performing together for the past 13 years. Their Facebook bio reads that they are “rooted in indie rock and a love for hip-hop beats, pop melodies, and electronic music” and tonight’s show combined all of those elements into a really rad sound. The Moons of Mars theme was also played upon through rad display moon drawings shown through canvas, which cast a dreamy ambiance over the Irish Pub.
As an music lover and avid show-goer myself, I must say it was quite an impressive performance for their first show. They packed out Molly Malone’s. [Okay, maybe its was 50 of their closest friends, but to have that many dedicated friends must say something about their character, am I right?] This character shows through their heart-felt lyrics and especially Mario’s passionate performance as the lead vocalist. His smooth vocals mixed well with Giovan’s and sounded even better than their recordings. Giovan hit the guitar riffs and chords with precision and skill. The talent of the rest of the band was unquestionable, as well. Their sound was so mesmerizing that you don’t even realize how good it is until the next band gets up to play. Your ears just know that you’re listening to something good and you just… enjoy it. I know I did.
Of their songs, my personal favorites were songs that they have posted on Sound Cloud, I Want You Here (Giovan’s acoustic guitar sounded unreal good) and Stay In LA. Not only are they really good songs that resonate with me, but my favorite songs are ones that I can sing along with. So do yourself a favor and go download these songs for FREE (!!!) at moonsofmars.net and be at their next show! There’s certainly more to come.
So maybe these are guys are my friends and maybe my boyfriend is the drummer, but these guys are talented and they’re going to be big! You heard it here first.
