Off Guard - "Strawberry Moon"
Written by: Lexie
Not all breakups end with vicious arguments or a thirst for revenge -- it gets complicated! Off Guard, an up-and-coming pop punk band, gives us a track that illustrates a scenario that veers from the typical bitter break-up.
"Strawberry Moon" is far from solemn, but in no way celebratory. It conveys a fondness and appreciation for what was, but also acknowledges the need for an end. This song is passionate and driven, but the delivery is softened with an accepting tone, and a pop-punk sound that is classic and familiar.
If you need a song to lift your hopes during a hard break-up, this may be exactly what you need to level your mind.
Want to check it out for yourself? Off Guard will be releasing "Strawberry Moon” as a single on September 29th, so mark your calendars! If you like what you hear, stay tuned! An EP is anticipated to be following, so be prepared for future announcements!
