Art itself is a message; and when a purposeful sound meets an honest message in lyrics as well, that's even better. That statement pretty much defines "Why iii love the moon", by the innovative New York group Phony Ppl.
This song is genius in production, composition and lyricism.
The lyrics use the moon as a reference to address the lack of honesty and consistency in romance and human relationships — funny enough, even with its four phases, the moon is still more constant than human beings.
But, if the lyrics are raw and unapologetic, the sound, for the other side, is sweet and groovy. This song is just the perfect blend of jazz, funk and hip hop.
So, yeah, this is a song about how sh*tty relationships can be, but it's not grumpy or pettish; instead it is... really nice and relaxing to listen to. Crude, but comforting. Almost like therapy should be. Genius songwriting.

About the curator: Ana Clara Ribeiro
Music, art and entertainment have always played a big role in the life of Ana Clara Ribeiro. She grew up in Gurupi (an inland city in Tocantins, the youngest State of Brazil), listening to all kinds of music, reading, writing, watching stuff and connecting them to her personal beliefs and other ideas she read about.
As she became a lawyer and a writer, all the topics to which she is constantly exposed continued to give her insights about life, people and the universe, through the lenses of art.
Nowadays, when she isn’t analyzing lawsuits or producing content about Law, Marketing, Business or Music, she is certainly doing something related to her various personal and professional projects, always to the sound of a playlist as eclectic as her life.
