Sometimes a beautiful soul walks into your life and releases something within you that you didn’t even know was there. Luna Blue channel that moment with their latest single, “Lou Lou”.
The light and bouncy track carries you on a spirit of longing. “Lou Lou, I’m coming back to you,” they declare. The reverb on their voice hints at a remembered perfection. The bright guitar sprinkled across the chorus evokes a trek across the map.
At one point, the heartfelt chest voice of the melody is doubled by a falsetto descant. The moment feels as transient as Lou Lou’s presence in their life. It’s both a beautiful and heartbreaking moment in context.
By the time the song ramps up for the close, choral vocalizations swell under the instrumentations. There’s a sense of belonging even as you realize the track’s ending. For just a few seconds, we feel the warm, filling sensation Lou Lou brought them. And then it disappears, leaving us wanting it again and again.
“Lou Lou” is the first of three new singles Luna Blue are releasing this year. With gigs already confirmed for spring, the four-piece are now ready to reconnect with fans.
