WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE ’88 TRAIN’ BY THE LUNAR KEYS
Powered by influences from the ’80s, “88 Train” is primarily pop based and fits perfectly in the current alt-pop charts. Constantly building into a stunning piece of music, The Lunar Keyshave really found their feet in this hectic industry.
About a quarter of the way through, the track finds a place of strength, especially with the drum beat. The only thing that makes me rethink slightly about the song is the melody. It feels like it’s quite comfortable. It doesn’t explore the unknown as much as hoped.
Saying that, I love how energy the release is and how it takes listeners through a transformative journey. The single is all about the desire for connection, and the search for meaning.
Quite a deep concept, the track is highly impactful. There’s no way you’ll be getting this song out of your head anytime soon.
It blends thunderous guitar riffs, pulsating drums, and the emotive vocals of The Lunar Keys with ease. The band are all about dedicating themselves to pushing boundaries and creating innovative music.
All about embracing the present and not longing for things in your past, or looking forward to the future, this is about keeping your feet on the ground and staying, well, just grounded at all times.
I love the progression in their music and the constant build.
