MUNYA – ”  Voyage to Mars “

Posted: November 9, 2021 in MUSIC

In 2018 Munya started creating her own music which eventually became a series of three EPs – a trilogy – each named for a significant place in her life.

Space is the place for this Montreal singer’s debut album that’s full of Frenchy synthpop and dreams of falling in love on other planets. Jessie Boivin is as serious about outer space as she is making irresistible pop music. “I love space. I love aliens. I love thinking that we’re not alone in this big strange universe,” Boivin says. “Those things give me hope.” Without a doubt, her full-length debut as Munya is the best Franco-Anglais ye-ye synthpop album about the space program and colonizing Mars to be released in 2021.”Voyage to Mars” isn’t a concept record per se, but she uses the idea of exploring other worlds and nostalgia for the golden age of the space race as a backdrop for charming, instantly hooky tracks that are also very much in the heart-on-sleeve pop tradition.  “Cocoa Beach,” “Voyage” and “Perfect Day” seem to exist in the 1960s, 1980s and now all at once, while zooming from Paris to New York faster than a Concorde ever could. It’s a transporting mix that has the faith in humanity of Gene Roddenberry, and earworms Khan could’ve taken over the galaxy with.
