Glad to Exist by Monroe Moon

Warren Malkin

Nature, music and people make a rich combination to meditate on and connect with oneself and others better. Monroe Moon brilliantly gathered these three prime matters in their latest song, “Glad to Exist,” giving us an organic soundscape.

When choosing someone to create a musical identity with and deliver music that sounds like the both of you, there has to be chemistry between you and space for your abilities to stand out together. The duo Monroe Moon has that spark inside and outside the music scene, as they’re the married couple Bunny Monroe and Theo Malkin, who play music as one with the harmony they have.

“Glad to Exist” is instrumentally, vocally, and lyrically top-notch with an ear-bliss production. It lures you into a meditative, pacifying mood as it builds a soaring atmosphere around you that carries you to a place that feels like a giant hug to you.

The single is inspired by “Comin’ Home Baby” by Mel Torme and a meditation session that led to a dream, then a reality through a soulful song. All the elements convey the introspective ambiance and embrace the message of building a deep, genuine connection with others and oneself.

The seductive, soothing intro sets the right mood for you and gives you a hint of how the instruments are mastered in this track. Monroe’s mesmerizing vocals create a light aura and plant peace at one’s core. Her voice delivers the profoundness in the lyrics and the pleasure in the rhythm. Instrumentally, it’s all well-placed, but what stands out are the energetic guitar riffs and their rocky vibe.

You’ll be left in a tranquil state with some riffs stuck in your mind and the line “You exist for me, I exist for you” being played over and over again with some soothing Shalala, and the only way to make them go away is to hit the play button again and enjoy some alone time.
