MOON AND ARIES
This musical duo is on a mission:
To make music that raises the vibrations of the listeners and elevates your mood.
After a successful release of their debut album, The Arrival, where all 9 songs looped on radio, in lounges, hotels and clubs etc, this success has motivated them to continue with their journey, because making music is what Moon and Aries were born to do.
And their love for retro and futuristic ideas was infused with synthesizers and nostalgic melodies, creating an album that takes you in and out of time.
As they move forward in their musical adventure, Moon and Aries have opened up their sound to really encapsulate their self proclaimed genre "Synth Pop Opera."
Moon and Aries pride themselves on high concept, dynamic theatrical tracks, and their new EP is nothing less than a full body activation experience.
After their existential exploration of the dark night to "The Arrival," Moon and Aries find themselves in Paradise. The new EP "PARADISE" has 5 tenacious tracks that carry you away, but also take you deeper into your soul. The duo continues to thrive in their musical connections and purpose to create music to theme the times.

"What makes this duo stand out to me is the fusion between complete calmness and a ton of energy at the same time. There are also a lot of 80s influences in this that I love. I think the 80s are having a bit of a comeback at the time of writing this, mainly because of the Netflix show Stranger Things, but I think this could work out in favour of Moon and Aries. Listening to Moon and Aries is like a massage for my ears. This is the kind of music that I can listen to all day and just feel like I’m being carried around on pillows.
It’s a treat for the mind and ears at the same time.”

“Evocative, poetic, thought-provoking, and artful – Jordana Moon knows exactly how to work a mysterious melody for all that it’s got to offer, and you’ll hear a sensationally smooth, fluid, and stylistic performance from her vocals, all throughout this new single. As for Tom Aries…well…my hat’s off to this man of music every bit as much folks – the sparkling & shimmering structure & design of “The Arrival” has so much depth to it & serves up a vibrantly complementary pairing with the vocals of Jordana, and vice versa, respectively.”
