How To Fall In Love With the Concept of Forgetting Pt1
Released August 15 2020
HOW TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE CONCEPT OF FORGETTING Is a conceptual alternative pop record from Boston Based artist, Moni Grace. For Moni’s third studio project, she focuses her creative story telling abilities on concepts such as heartache, love, trauma and healing. How To Fall In Love with the Concept of Forgetting started as drafts of love letters or poems originally scripted in the notes section of Moni’s iPhone between February and June of 2020. With each innovative, structurally crafted line from each emotional piece pulling mainly from sentences from conversations, dreams, characters from movies, real life experiences to even tinder bios— Moni is able to prove that you can find healing through story telling in any environment, with any project, any mind-State or in any relationship. The artists’ goal in the songwriting process for this project, is the importance of using your voice, and its power. Also, not allowing yourself to be silenced by whatever trauma, abuse, situation or experience that tries to brand you to its’ toxicity or weight.
How to Fall In Love with the Concept of Forgetting is the perfect collection of the liminal moments that we often forget about in our daily lives, but are encouraged to never physically forget about. This is because of the significance behind the memories in which they were created from. This idea is specifically present in the first track, “Five, Since”.
The second track, “All Mine”, goes further into the concept of liminality, and the meaning those simplistic encounters may contain. The theme of relying on memories, including the dream of a person, rather than the actual person in the present tense to fill voids is explicitly prevalent as well.
The idea of being rescued, or saved emotionally or physically from individualized trauma in relation to PTSD plays a major role in the thesis behind “Jack + Rose”, the last track on the EP.
In conclusion, HOW TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE CONCEPT OF FORGETTING is the perfect summer record for anyone who uses those concepts as methods for escapism or healing.
