NEW LUNA Unveil New Track ‘Red Music’
The latest New Luna single is a rousing blend of dream pop and cutting post-indie.
Manchester outfit New Luna bring out their latest track Red Music, a blend of their subtler, softer dream pop aspect and the more explosive post-indie sound that evidences itself during their live shows. Rousing guitars and dynamic drumming set the scene for raw vocals, creating a sonically cohesive racket that captures the searing energy that this quartet have to offer.
A chilled out opening, complete with light guitars, slowly builds and grows into an unstoppable momentum that hurtles its way forward through electrifying solos and gripping breakdowns. The high, dainty guitars of the opening transform into a force to be reckoned with, and the texture rises and falls in accordance with the music. Yearning vocals contrast the euphoric instrumentals, and upon initial listen, you would not suspect the emotional depth of the lyrics based on the light instrumentals itself.
Guitarist Zack Bamber explains:
It’s a very direct and raw sounding song that goes on a trip through a few different feelings and places. Musically, it might sound upbeat and pleasant but Tommy’s lyrics heavily offset that, creating a sense of almost sarcastic melancholy in both the floating breakdowns and the heavier drops.
