Review: "Cheap Silver Lining" (feat. Luke Sital-Singh) - LULLANAS

We're all guilty of overthinking at some point in our lives. Especially when you've experienced trauma from past relationships, it's hard not to be constantly afraid that you could mess it up again with someone else. They could look at you the wrong way and you'd start to feel like they're losing interest in you. 'Cheap Silver Lining' by LULLANAS highlights the thoughts we rummage through when you're overthinking subtle changes in a relationship. You're stuck thinking, "Are they mad at me? Did I do something they didn't like? Why do I always screw everything up? Do they still want me?". Sometimes we just have to take a deep breath, tuck away our insecurities and realize the special connection that we have with someone.

Mixed with a folk themed acoustic guitar and a Foster The People reminiscent bass, this indie pop track pulls you in instantly. Soft vocals of the sisterly duo bring their poetic lyrics to life. This song was co-written and produced by acclaimed artist Luke Sital-Singh, who LULLANAS invited to sing harmonies on the track, ultimately creating the perfect outcome of ethereal harmonies and an undeniably catchy groove. The style of this song reminds me of something that would be a part of The Hunger Games movie series soundtrack with it's plucked acoustic strings and the emotionally light and airy vocals, additionally combined with haunting harmonies and phrases ending in minor chords.

LULLANAS is a duo project by twin sisters Atisha and Nishita Lulla. Raised in Pennsylvania, the sisters grew up listening to a vast variety of music all the way from The Beatles to Shania Twain; but their true musical journey all started with the simple gift of a guitar from their dad when the girls were headed off to college. The Lulla twins used music to get through their most stressful times, particularly when they were doing Summer internships in New York City. They found themselves performing anywhere and everywhere that they could if they were given the chance. They've even performed in the produce section at a Whole Foods; how many artists get to say that?! Their career together changed forever when the girls went to India to visit their grandmother where they were given the chance to record one of their songs in a studio. Their debut single, 'Don't Say', has now surpassed over 3 million streams on Spotify since it's release. The girls hold onto a solid 500,000+ monthly listeners given they haven't released anything since 2021. But they are coming back strong in 2023 with 'Cheap Silver Lining' and much more music to come.
