Cure (Acoustic)

Released: 19 Oct 2023

Label: Tru Thoughts

“Cure (Acoustic)” is a new single from GRAMMY-nominated LA-trio Moonchild, aka Amber Navran, Andris Mattson, & Max Bryk, taken from the band’s upcoming career-spanning EP ‘Reflections’ (out Friday 10th Nov).

“Cure”, originally on Moonchild’s highly-acclaimed third album ‘Voyager’ (2017), is a song that paints a vivid portrait of Los Angeles and explores the methodology of heartbreak. The acoustic version of “Cure” decompresses the song into a serene piano rendition that reinforces the emotional weight of the subject matter, that of “finding love before you’re ready for it”, as Amber explains. Talking about the process of revisiting this song, Amber adds “Cure was our first pick when we decided to make “Reflections”. We’ve been continually overwhelmed with love for Cure since we released it and it’s meant the world to us! A lot of our fans have told us it was the song that drew them into our music. Cure was a turning point in our career and it played a big role in allowing us to pursue music and travel the world. So, we poured that love into making this new version. We hope you love it!”

Inspired by the band’s iconic Tiny Desk performance (now on 4.9 million views), the ‘Reflections’ EP project sees the band reimagine and revisit old songs from across their career, including some of the trio’s biggest hits. An essential collection for all Moonchild fans, ‘Reflections’ is available on black and limited edition mint vinyl, as well as CD.

Talking about the new acoustic re-imaginings and the process of revisiting old songs, Max adds: “Reflections, an EP covering our older songs, naturally shows some of our growth as musicians over the last 10 years. Amber’s vocals, in particular, are a fantastic example of that. A more subtle example of growth is our musical maturity and restraint. Leaving space for the music to breathe. I think that’s the main reason we created this new project, and we are excited to share Reflections with our fans.”
