"You Are (Live Studio Session)" by Luna KissReview
To make up for not being able to gig, Luna Kiss have released a new single "You Are (Live Studio Session)" which is intended as a gift to their frustrated fans be trying to recreate the live experience as best they can from a safe social distance. In their own words "…it has sucked not being able to get out on the road this year and see you lot, our fans! Live music is an experience like no other, and creating those individual moments that are unique to every show is something that we all really miss."
As you can imagine from such a powerful live act, the outcome is impressive & you can hear the pent up frustration in their performance. In four & a quarter minutes they manage to express their own feelings & show their understanding of those of their audience too.
They express themselves as being very satisfied with the outcome (as they are entitled to be) and likewise with the actual process of making it (it must have been pretty cathartic). It features the characteristic Luna Kiss surges & abrupt gear changes which are almost as exhilarating out of your speaker as on stage. What is striking (and this must be a factor in why they chose this song rather than others) is how the lyrics apply so well to the current situation: almost as if they'd written it about our times….
