Moon Blue is the dream pop project of George Appleton, a British musician now based in Italy.

He’s recently let go of his new single “Midnight in Rome”, a lush psych-leaning blend of dream pop with a widescreen cinematic presence. There’s a soulful nature the vocals with a wicked smart pop vocal and a melancholic nature that comes off as emotive and sincere.

Speaking on the track, Appleton adds:

Written one night from my apartment in Rome. I was feeling sentimental and thinking of all the people that have helped ground me in times of uncertainty / anxiety. My intention was to try and put the feelings through a real pop lens, kind of as if The Bee Gees and Mac Demarco had a baby.
