Show Notes and Full Show Transcript

Hey everyone welcome to the Eat Sleep Breathe Music Podcast. I’m so excited you are here. My name is Jeanette and I am your host. 

This week I have a new pop single that I am excited to share with you. I got this email in my inbox and I really enjoyed it so I decided to throw it up on the podcast and feature the artists this week.

So this week’s artist is whereisluna. Whereisluna is the brainchild of Amy Han. Han has always had a love for music however, it was only a few years ago that she got serious about her craft. 

Music was the one constant that made her feel happy. So she immersed herself in the Toronto music scene learning everything she could about the industry. 

She took refuge out on her home’s balcony. There she basked in the quiet of late-night able to teach herself guitar and rehearse uninterrupted.

Songwriting made her happy but she had lacked the confidence to share her music. 

Lucky for us something clicked and she began releasing music. She put out a handful of tracks including “cheaper”  and collaborated with the artist Mindy on the song “Out of My Head.”

Like most people, Amy was having a lot of trouble during the pandemic. She was in a slump from being in lockdown for so long.

It was also a time she was able to let the music be her solace. At the height of the pandemic was when she wrote the track “quarter-century pity party.” 

This track was a reflection in response to a promise she made to herself a few years ago when she got into music more seriously. 

She thought she would have it all figured out by the time she turned 25. You know how it is when you’re young and you have your whole life ahead of you and you have this clear driven path. And you’re gonna do this and you’re gonna do that and you’re like oh this is gonna be awesome. 

And then you turn 25 and none of that has happened. 

This was the inspiration for this track. When she wrote the song she was 25 and nowhere near where she thought she would be by then. 

On the surface, it seems like it can totally suck when you feel like you haven’t reached the goals that you have set out for yourself.

But for whereisluna putting out all her emotion and thoughts into this track was gave her a release from all the stress she was feeling from not attaining her goals.

In effect, It helped her regain her sanity. Throughout the time she was writing the song she was also fighting with her mom a lot about her career goals. What she realized was that wanted to do what would make her happy. And that was music. 

She says that “life is too short to be doing something that you hate.” even if you still get criticisms from your parents.

So this is an anthem for anyone who feels they have yet to meet their goals. Sometimes life happening is what stands in the way of your plans. 

I”m sure a lot of people have felt this way over the past 2 years. 

All you are left to do is adapt. Learning to adapt can be difficult but at least we know there are other people out there feeling the same way. 

That is why this song is a comfort to anyone who feels like life has thrown you a curveball. 

It’s a way of making you on your toes and realizing that what you think is going to happen may not always come to fruition.

Just as songwriting is a cathartic process for whereisluna, song listening can be a healing process for anyone going through the same emotions. 

“quarter-century pity party” is a cool song because it speaks to the listener on a few levels. First and foremost it has a fierce beat that will catch your ear. 

So if you’re a person more into the beats and melodies of a song this is one that will greatly appeal to you. 

It has an attention-grabbing first few notes that meld with bouncing drum beats and distorted guitars. It’s an interesting mix of genres: part pop, part indie rock

whereisluna delivers sweet enchanting vocals and heartwarming lyrics that show you how to forge your new path to happiness. 

This mix of music and lyrics soothes the soul its friendly head-bobbing pop beats will entice and humor the listener.

whereisluna has been said to appeal to fans of Halsey, Taylor Swift, and Sasha Sloan. 

whereisluna has also been working on a new single and has plans to release an EP sometime down the road.

In the meantime, you can enjoy a “quarter-century pity party.” Now I will give you the chance to listen for yourself.  Without further ado here is “quarter-century pity party” by whereisluna.
