“Moving Mountains” – *Tibs Fav. | Gowhere Hip Hop ::
“….it’s flat out a beautiful song and visual combo as Skylar first gets introspective lyrically. ….I instantly caught myself reflecting at my life which doesn’t just happen when you listen to music that’s even aimed to do just this. Not sure if that’s Skylar’s intent because above all, “Moving Mountains” just feels like a strong, authentic, and personal release.

The visuals take the song to another level too as Skylar Grey literally moves up the mountains, amidst some deep, clean white snow. They smartly grab some incredible wide, overhanging shots that showcase the true beauty of nature. These shots are (also smartly) contrasted with Skylar playing the guitar in front of a fireplace and that’s the perfect mood and setting for this song too. Watch….you’ll be in from the very first chords like I was….”

“….feeling stressed? Overworked? Oversexed? Let Skylar Grey put things into perspective for you.

….the talented singer-songwriter returns to us with “Moving Mountains, a somber guitar-driven ballad about “finding your happiness” through all the craziness in your life.

….It’s one of those songs I think any of us hard-working, career-driven folks can relate to. Like Skylar, I’m sure many or your aspirations in life are to be heard and successful but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your happiness – It’s okay to just take a break y’all….”
