Moonchild is the blue-haired Port Elizabeth-born fashion designer, poet and experimental musician. She officially announced her presence with her album Rabulapha! earlier in 2015 after a few singles in 2014. She has appeared on Okayafrica, The Mail & Guardian, ELLE and more reputable publications. Below she shares a list of her five favourite albums of all time and why she likes them.
“I love Paloma’s writing. When I discovered her music, it spoke to me. I love her story, I love her writing. She’s very theatrical and is also a great singer as well. The way she writes her stuff is so clear, yet not basic. She’s like a UK Lady Gaga.”
Jhené Aiko – Souled Out
“I like that she’s got a mellow vibe but still commercially appealing. Her lyrics are relatable, [it’s as if] she speaks for you. Souled Out is different to the stuff she did with Chris Brown and Omarion.”
Sia – 1000 Forms of Fear
“I love Sia. She’s all about the music. She also plays a huge roll behind the scene – making great artists even greater. After being told about her, 1000 Forms of Fear was the first album I listened to and I was impressed.”
Destiny’s Child – Destiny Fulfilled
“I wasn’t even dating and didn’t know anything about sex, in primary school but it was great to harmonise to this album. I would sing “Horny horny”, without even knowing what it meant. It was great to play the different roles of the members ”
Moonchild – Rabulapha!
Moonchild also included her own album Rabulapha! on her list. She says the album brings back a lot of memories. She is proud of it as it makes her proud of who she is and how far she has come.
