December 4th, 2023 – Misha Penton, the multi-talented singer, composer, director, writer, and filmmaker, is set to captivate audiences once again with her release, «Earthshine,» which dropped today, December 4th, 2023. The release coincides with the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, setting the stage for a truly introspective and evocative musical experience.
«Earthshine» draws inspiration from the enigmatic and contemplative qualities of the winter solstice, offering a unique perspective on this dark and quiet time of year. The video was made with the assistance of AI to create a broad layering effect on live clips that gives the video it’s timeless, ethereal quality. Misha Penton beautifully encapsulates the essence of the season in her own words: «This dark and introspective time is a pause before the lengthening days bring us toward summer. I love the idea of going inward and engaging with stillness before the beginning of a new cycle. Earthshine is the dim glow on the darkened part of a crescent moon — the reflected sunlight from Earth shining on the night side of the moon. My music video and song conjures the subtle illuminating energies of beautiful things unseen or unnoticed.»
