SOUNDTRACK: Black Moon by Heathers
Soundtrack to Veiled Intentions: Black Moon by Elle Keaton
I hope I got the lyrics right for this song. I had to transcribe it myself because I can’t find them anywhere. I loved how the guitar-heavy sound, languid vocals and minimalist words fit the vibe the of the book.
The verses “Strange moon on the horizon / then we’re crawling in its wake / looking over our shoulders / counting up our past mistakes” remind me of the part where Niall always think himself a bad person because of his past and therefore undeserving of good things. Also how the case connects to the death of Matt’s father a decade ago.
The last verse describes the happy ending at the end of the book: “glorious we are together / we could leave the rest alone / we could hear the call of every new morning / we wake up where we belong“
