Mattapoisett, Massachusetts based electro pop musician, Hunter Moreau leaves herself encouraging reminders to keep pushing forward in her latest single “Be Alright”. As the natural drain of everyday life becomes increasingly taxing, she leans into a sense of optimism that knows things will work out on way or another.
Moreau notes that the song, “was written, above all else, as a reminder. Like a reminder that pops up on your phone, letting you know you still have things left on your to-do list. Except this reminder is to let you know that no matter how overwhelming and exhausting the whirlpool of life may seem, it’s going to be alright.”
And as the echoing guitar pulsates against a light backbeat and background synthesizers, there is a sense of complacency and comfort that comes through potently. The song is relaxing and reassuring in a gentle way that doesn’t impose a sense of urgency.
“The day I wrote ‘Be Alright’ with Parkwild and King Mala, we were doing the casual first conversation thing and they asked me how I was doing” Moreau recalls. “I responded along the lines of, ‘Honestly, like really good.’ I felt at that moment in time that I was at peace. That even if I didn’t have all the answers to everything, even if I was making 100 mistakes, that it was all going to work out. I remember taking the Uber ride to the studio that day and staring out the window at the hilly landscape of Los Angeles, which felt so mesmerizing to me. I thought to myself that I truly felt totally and completely okay, and that whenever I didn’t feel like that, I should remind myself of the feeling I had at that moment.”
“Be Alright” is available on major streaming platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, and Deezer. Find this and more excellent music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture Playlist on Spotify.
