Moonray initially made a splash this year with their two singles, “Hand of Queens” and “Come Away,” both of which were warmly received for their textural, dreamlike synthpop structure. Recently, the husband-and-wife duo, consisting of Jonray and Barbara Higginbotham, has successfully followed them up with their third single, “No Stranger to Love,” which will be off their debut EP, Honeymoon.

Resonant in a similar vein, the single begins on an arrangement consisting of reverberating percussion, warm bass, and a silky synth sequence. As Barbara’s harmony laces with Jonray’s (in both natural and synthetic forms), the instrumental involvement is subsequently fleshed out with crunchy guitar leads, providing additional substance to an already vivid foundation. Once again, the two do an exceptional job of complementing the color tones of the single’s cover art, a subtle, yet distinctive feat that wholly enhances the presentation. By the time the Honeymoon EP fully materializes, Moonray will reach another milestone in their journey of love, light, and life.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
