TFN has a fantastic premiere video for you today! MOIRA, the Dayton, OH based dream-pop trio, has teamed up with fellow Gem City artist and friend TINO. The pairing reimagine one of MOIRA’s first tracks, “Blacking Out.” The song originally closed out their 2015 debut EP, Asleep/Repeat/Awake, but now the track skyrockets to another emotional level with the additional heartfelt rhymes of TINO.
The song is a true mesmerizing mix, as lead vocalist and pianist Alicia Grodecki (Vanity Theft) guides you slowly with her powerful and emotive vocals with some early background support from TINO until he bursts out front with an emotional flow that nails the soul. Much like the original, the track builds in intensity from there but this pairing of talent takes an already good song and creates something truly special for you to hear today!
“We are incredibly excited to breathe new life into this song with the help of our friend, TINO. “Blacking Out” was one of the first songs the three of us wrote together, and it’s always been very dear to us. The process of re-writing it alongside TINO, re-recording it ourselves, and making the video meant a lot to us, and we are so happy to release what we feel is now a fully realized version of this song.” – MOIRA
