Although you may not be able to see it at the time, some relationships are bound to collapse. For her latest single, “Don’t Blame It on the Moon,” Esther Rose explores both sides in a quickly fading partnership, using subdued, but compelling vocals to deliver a musical conversation marked by finality. Backed only by the strum of a guitar, Rose’s moon-lit musings lands with a powerful presence. And while the track reveals its true intent with deliberate pacing and an almost cautious nature, “Don’t Blame It on the Moon” comes across with such intimacy that one feels awestruck by its subtly. The track represents that final grasp at something that’s long gone, and that last goodbye, those final thoughts and realizations, they all come together for a simply dazzling and emotional single.
