Dutch singer releases ‘Moonrise’ song off of upcoming EP Love & Breakups

Singer-songwriter Donna Lugassy has announced the release of her solo single, ‘Moonrise’ on 24 January. The single is lifted from her upcoming EP, Love & Breakups which is slated for release on 13 March via Lugassy Records. Donna Lugassy was raised in the Netherlands with a family life of mixed cultural heritage, with a Dutch mother and a father of Israeli/ Moroccan descent. By 10 years old, Lugassy’s talent was recognized and she was placed in singing lessons and at 14, she began producing her own music, having grown tired of waiting on others. In the later years, she received her Senior General Secondary Education from Codarts University of the Arts in Rotterdam.During the making of Love & Breakups, Lugassy predominantly listened to D’Angelo‘s Brown Sugar album. The syncopation of D’Angelo’s style is reflected throughout her album while the maturity and deep, rich vocals of Beyoncé spring to mind. However, it’s the talent and dynamic stylings of SZA and Solange that one is reminded of as they listen to ‘Moonrise’. As Love & Breakups is the audio representation of the pattern that Donna Lugassy’s love life travels through, ‘Moonrise’ reflects the introductory or “getting to know you” phase. Rhythmic vocal aspects reflect life patterns as the lyrics build to a steady beat. Carrying the romantic element of “convos and white wine”, there is a laid back and casual tone that’s presented. The result is a warm, vibing song that provides a strong contrast to ‘Coldest’ which follows next.
