Karolina Rose Unveils New Single ‘Goodnight, Mr. Moon’
Brooklyn-based Polish-American singer-songwriter Karolina Rose has just unveiled her brand new single Goodnight, Mr. Moon. What drew me in to this song first was that airy/dreamy atmosphere of the production and then I was blown away by her powerful vocals.

Goodnight, Mr. Moon is a great piece of dark atmospheric, electropop music, with an addictive beat and great melodies. The song is about exploring grief through dreams, so not a light song, but I am really drawn to these introspective types of songs. Stream this gem below!



Speaking about the inspiration behind the song Karolina said,
There were a few inspirations for the song. The initial spark came from a conversation with my friend & visual artist, Heide Hatry, who occasionally runs some artist showcase nights in conjunction with her work. She asked me if I can write a song about death and perform it at her showcase (which I did end of last year). She told me her project 'Icons in Ash' all started with her dealing with the loss of her father. I felt her emotion that she would do anything to bring him back. He was cremated, so she took the ashes from his body and created a portrait of him in his utmost essence. She took a lot of relief to having that portrait in her apartment. She felt her father was with her.

Further, I also have suffered from nightmares for many years. I often have hallucinations when I sleep. I wake up and see things in my bedroom or projected onto the walls or something within my room takes a different shape and moves. It's quite frightening. The first verse of the song takes inspiration from one of my nightmares where I woke up and it literally looked as if the moon was projecting a spotlight onto my wall. It may sound magical, but it was quite frightening. I started coming up with the visualization of someone hallucinating in the middle of the night, bringing back their loved one by talking to the moon, and so the loved one becomes "Mr. Moon". She communicates with her lost love in the nighttime. She processes her grief in dreams. She thinks it is totally real until the end of the song when she wakes up from the dream and knows that it's really time to say goodbye, indicated by the last lyrics: "Goodnight, Mr. Moon", "you gave a kiss of peace", "sweet gentle release".
The song was also a reminder of my nightmares I experienced following my best friend from high school's tragic death due to a drug overdose.
Karolina is working with producer Andros Rodriguez (Florence + The Machine, Madonna) on her debut EP set to arrive later this summer.
