Never one to step away from provocative concepts, Lebanon-based group Sandmoon tackles issues of a dystopian society, pandemic lockdown blues, and much more in their unique collection of songs. We speak to frontwoman Sandra Arslanian about their new album While We Watch The Horizon Sink, what music means to her and much more!
Why did you decide to begin making music?
Is it a question of a decision or just a matter of spirit? One is drawn to it organically I believe. Taking it a step further, recording and performing is a natural development, maybe even more so for a singer-songwriter.
What does music mean to you?
The most immaterial form of art, which makes one vibrate and transcend. Singing is a deeply spiritual act.
What do you hope people take from your music?
To move them, inspire them.
What can you tell us about your album While We Watch The Horizon Sink?
A collection of songs exploring dream and indie pop, rock and folk. It delves into emotions felt while going through dystopian, surrealistic times as was the case these past two years worldwide, and especially in Lebanon.
Do you have a favourite track on the album?
Had you asked me the same question when I released the previous two albums, I would have been able to give you a favourite track. I wouldn’t know how to choose this time. Which one is yours?
What about a least favourite?
How would you describe Sandmoon?
What future plans do you have for Sandmoon?
