CASTLE ‘MOVING ON’ SINGLE REVIEW

Castle

Australian music artist Castle has just released her debut single, Moving On.

the singer-songwriter’s first release is sure to go a long way in establishing a successful flight path and undoubtedly prove to be a precursor to even brighter musical soul-searchings.

VINCE LEIGH

The Perth born independent singer-songwriter’s new track blends elements of pop, dance and accessible rock with convincing ardour and believable solemnity. As any sixteen-year-old artist, not to mention the well-practiced and wizened kind, is prone to ponder, Moving On explores a coming-of-age experience.

As Castle has said regarding the lyric, ‘The song is about the realisation that the end of a relationship does not have to be a heartbreaking experience, it can be a release. It’s an anthem to better times and new beginnings, to the growth and evolution of the teenager.’

That being said, the track’s opening volley, I’ve been tied up for way too long  / My ship’s out of sails and I’m not that strong, does suggest a hint of heartbreak, if not an unwillingness, or rather, a determination, that the protagonist is not ready for such emotional upheaval.

And rightly so; who is, ever? I was only good when you needed me / But this is not where I’m supposed to be, the following line states. This is where it gets curious. Just where is one supposed to be at sixteen? A good question, particularly for the teenager. In fact, for anyone.

However, this is the perennial fabled question for this segment of society is it not; just where do I fit in? As far as making records go, Castle appears to have quite a clear idea about where she should be.

As Castle has said about her work, ‘My music is kind of lyrical dance-pop. I don’t like to feel defined by a genre, but just express experiences and tell stories through my lyrics and create a vibe.’

Recorded and mixed by Chad Blondel from Blondel studios and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Sia, Dua Lipa, Halsey, Selena Gomez) of Sterling Sound, the singer-songwriter’s first release is sure to go a long way in establishing a successful flight path and undoubtedly prove to be a precursor to even brighter musical soul-searchings.
