Indeed, there are moments in music that demand a different kind of introduction, and Dune Moss‘ latest single, Eyes Inside My Walls, is one such occasion. This track is a seismic force, an unapologetic collision with raw, genuine emotion that leaves no soul untouched. It’s a powerhouse of sound and vulnerability, where the artist lays bare their inner world. But it’s at the two-minute mark that the true magic unfolds, a monumental vocal crescendo that is nothing short of a life-altering experience. After this, no listener can remain unchanged; it’s a musical journey that resonates long after the final note fades away. Thank you Dune!
“What have I done? What have I done?”
“Eyes Inside My Walls” is a song that reflects one of my deepest scars. I grew up in a religion that pinned me down and restricted many aspects of who I am. In my community, when you turned 8, you were baptized and told that you were at the “age of accountability” with the responsibility to repent of all your sins. I was obligated to repent for being a normal, sexually curious teenager. All the men I confessed my sins to were older and compelled me to describe intimate details about what I did sexually. I was made to recount specifics about all encounters, including merely kissing boys. They twisted my innocence and turned it into shame. “Eyes Inside My Walls”, though, is not about shaming myself. Instead, it’s the raw feeling of anger and sadness for all the years I spent faithfully following their all-male leadership. My childhood and teenage years were spent with the patriarchy’s eyes watching every move I made.
Here I am at 22, only now realizing what was done. The patriarchal system within my church imprisoned my soul and influenced every decision I made. As an adult, I am finally on the journey to build myself sexually and spiritually as the woman I want to be from the ground up.” Dune Moss
