In what could be our last story for 2021, we take a look at the new Luna May single ‘Reluctantly Romantic’.
As you’ll no doubt have seen on the site over the past couple of weeks, things have really started to wind down for the year in the music industry.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a couple of gems popping up here and there.
One of those gems happens to be the aforementioned new Luna May single ‘Reluctantly Romantic’.
A collaboration with producer Sam Phay, the track was created in the mire of Melbourne’s sixth COVID 19 lockdown earlier this year. And lyrically, it documents the breakdown of a relationship.
“The song tells of one partner unwilling to let their guard down, fearful of getting hurt,” Luna explains. “The other holds the relationship together, imploring their partner to let them in.
“Written in the wake of my own relationship breakdown, it’s really about feeling like you want to be with someone but not being able to figure out a way forward.”
Sam not only lends his production prowess to this track, but his vocals too.
Dare we say, it’s a wonderfully impressive, polished way to end 2021.
