Following the tremendous success of their last single, Good Stuff, a record that was brimming with fun, exuberance and pure pop brilliance Vegas Sunset has followed that up with another slice of pop-rock heaven with This Is the Moment, a slightly edgier track but one that retains the group’s clever pop sensibilities and genre-mixing skills.

Vegas Sunset has been touring for a little while and their live show is renowned for its escapism; just the very kind of thing this new track reflects. As Vegas Sunset has said about the song, ‘It’s about being at that point that you feel you’ve prepared and are ready for that next big step forward to reach your goal’.
This Is the Moment opens with a powerful and hypnotic drum feel, augmented by keys and synths which then evolve into the verses with their strong use of space and simplicity to evoke a sense of determination.
This Is The Moment drops on Nov 2…
The verse melodies are effective and aided by the guitar textures which add a sense of urgency to the track, the highlight of which is the chorus with its anthemic quality and relatable lyric. It’s easy to understand how This Is the Moment will no doubt become a feature of the band’s live shows, as the groups say, ‘I think we all would just love the idea that people enjoy the music we make and the idea that someone somewhere is possibly singing along or dancing at a live gig’.
The production is clean with the choice of instrumentation perfectly suiting the expansive nature of the track, the inspirational lyric and the driving guitars and strident drum feel.
Overall This Is the Moment strikes the right balance between accessible pop-rock and dance, and all enhanced by a contemporary flavour to the sound. This Is the Moment is another impressive release for this Brisbane band and sure to attract a lot of radio and streaming site action.
