"All On Me" by Luna Kiss

Review

Today sees the release of the latest Luna Kiss single which has the title of "All On Me". Hot on the heels of last month's "Lust For Blood" and February's "Operate", this is the sound of a band in a hurry to make up time lost: and I mean that literally. The songs rush at you with an exuberance wholly in keeping with such an exciting live band.

Unlike its two predecessors, "All On Me" is less obviously surgical in theme (unless you count in the clinical precision of the playing) and the gore quotient is limited to the emotions.

In fact the over riding idea is that of compassion: of positivity and of communal support for each other. The mood is still very dynamic and hits you square on, but this song has a sense (at least in certain passages) of holding back to create strong contrasts within the track & enhances both the power & the discernibility of the lyrics.

One thing I think might be worth saying too about this trio of Luna Kiss singles is how well they reflect their live sound: the key USP which first attracted my attention & I imagine everyone else's too. It's hard enough to do this for any artist, but when your style is based so heavily on excitement (and how do you record that easily?) and powerful playing which comes across more readily at concert rather than headphone volume levels, it's a big ask but I feel the band seem to have cracked that particular challenge.

The last two singles also had eye catching videos to accompany them: in completely different styles too. I gather one is coming for "All On Me", so as they say, you' better watch this space.

 

You can hear "All On Me" too on the "Hot Music Live Presents" Spotify playlist via this link: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5FjGYjhwzcZShIsnPOA7m9?si=edd9fc0eaacf4289
