Luunes have followed their debut in style with new single ‘Torrents’
Newcastle duo LUUNES are here with their second single ‘Torrents’, the lush, dreamy follow up to their moody debut, ‘Glass’. It’s a track that swirls and loops in a way that envelopes the listener completely, relaxed and ethereal in parts, but with pockets of crisp, higher-energy percussion that push the song up a notch or two.
‘Torrents’ began as nothing more than a simple guitar progression before a walk down to a nature reserve with a field recorder got the ball rolling for Sam Litchfield’s atmospheric production work. It’s the perfect match for Anna Milat’s beautiful vocals, allowing for a surging soundscape heavy with emotion.
Luunes describe ‘Torrents’ as “that feeling when you meet somebody and just fall into them, like you have become a part of one another and are completely under each other’s skin. It’s the excitement of that feeling, but it is also the fear of commitment and the idea of losing that person into an inevitable impermanency, or into the depths of emotional waves.”
It’s worth keeping that in mind as you inevitably fall into this tune, as well as noting how skilfully put together ‘Torrents’ is. It’s only Luunes’ second release, and it’s no secret that they have some serious talent.
