Quebec-based artist MUNYA, the solo project of Josie Boivin, has shared her first-ever English song “If I’m Gone Tomorrow (It’s Because Of Aliens).” It’s a dreamy melody that packs a punch of wittiness and paranormal air that stretches the boundaries of our imagination. What a great song to send to your boss and miss work tomorrow:
“When I was a kid I really loved the movie Independence Day,” she explains of the track. “One night, years later I was home alone and I kept hearing really weird loud noises, not like a truck driving by, but a truck crashing into a building over and over. It freaked me out so bad I called my boyfriend and told him that if I’m gone tomorrow it’s because of aliens…he wouldn’t stop laughing at me. I was so mad he wouldn’t take me seriously I didn’t sleep that night and instead I wrote this breakup song.” shared MUNYA.
Boivin is a classically trained pianist, opera singer, and jazz student who have been making music from her kitchen. Yep, she’s not a bedroom producer but a kitchen producer. MUNYA’s recording have become part of an EP trilogy where each project is made up of three songs and named after a significant place in her life. “If I’m Gone Tomorrow (It’s Because Of Aliens)” is from her upcoming second EP Delmano (named after Hotel Delmano in Williamsburg), which will be out on October 5th.
