The 27th of March brings us a dreamy indie bop of a tune from Bristol based, Dream-Pop five piece, Stay Lunar, as they charm us with new single ‘Dreaming That I’m Not In Love’. “We want to make music that makes people feel something, but simultaneously want to dance", explains singer/songwriter Harry Leigh, which hits it home with the new single.
The track brings a fusion of light and airy sunshine with addressing, a not-so-sunshine, narrative of insecurities in relationships which relates to everyone, creating a beautiful contrast that balances so wonderfully on dance-y synths and bouncy guitars. It flows through you, resonating in your chest and you can’t help but at least nod your head along with it. There is a twist of simplicity to this track that is carefully crafted, lyrically it is straight forward yet soft, while the layers of guitar, synths and bass behind them support the whole vibe of the track without overcomplicating it.
The track has been crafted with the help of producers Ady Hall and Lee McCarthy of Sugar House (Pale Waves, Larkins, Viola Beach and Mint) which really helps it to excel as it sounds polished and perfected, allowing you to float away and get lost in the track.
I really like this track, it’s got a bouncy, feel-good vibe that’s underlined with a simple yet very real story. I have a feeling that this track is going to be big for the boys in Stay Lunar this Spring. Fans of indie dream-pop - you’re in for a treat here.
