Sandmoon – Wake Up [Video]

Sandmoon is the band around singer and songwriter Sandra Arslanian from Beirut, Lebanon. Their excellent second album “Put a Gun/Commotion” was one of my favorites in 2020. They are back now with a new reflective track, “Wake Up,” carried by glittering synth arpeggios and Sandra’s gentle vocals. It is a song about all that has happened in the last two years and the hope to leave everything eventually behind. While this is a message we all can appreciate, it is particularly an homage to the resilience of the Lebanese people. Sandra explains:

“Wake Up is a song about looking beyond superficiality, going to the essence of things and of yourself…’ And then you heal.’ The song was written during one of the COVID-lockdowns and after months of protests in Beirut. Wake Up reflects the intensity and the transformative power of everything the people in Beirut and in Lebanon have lived through in the past two years.”

“Wake Up” will be on Sandmoon’s third album, “While We Watch The Horizon Sink,” out later this year. Listen to our Song Pick of the Day on your favorite streaming service and watch the beautifully filmed video, directed by Salim Mourad below:
