Review: "the glass" - little luna
Self-discovery is an infinitive process. We are constantly finding out new things about ourselves while sometimes forgetting what we already knew. Some days you feel as though you know exactly who you are. Other days, it can be terrifying to look in the mirror, scared of who may look back at you. In her new song, ‘the glass’, little luna is re-discovering who she is. She’s gotten a bit distracted with life and lost herself in the process. In ‘the glass’, she’s taking the time and look within herself. What she thought would be scary and intimidating is not as bad as she once thought, and she realizes that it’s okay to be introspective with oneself.
In her social media bios, luna has written ‘I write songs about re-discovering your truest self’. ‘the glass’ fits this description well. luna’s sincere and earnest vocals, accompanied by a dreamy alt-pop beat, gently encourage listeners to try and look within themselves. Each chorus begins with the lyrics, “I’ve been facing the sight, of myself in the glass tonight/ and I realized, that it’s okay that I look inside”. The repetition throughout the song reminds the listener that self-reflection isn’t as scary as we think, and that it’s okay to learn about yourself. While the song expresses the importance of self-reflection, it also acknowledges that sometimes we get sidetracked by the opinions of others. Every day, whether through social media or in person, there are people telling us the ways we ‘should’ and 'shouldn’t’ be living. “It’s weird I’ve never seen it, I only needed my own help”, these lyrics are luna’s reminder that the only person who can make decisions for you is yourself. ‘the glass’ makes you think about who you are, but thanks to luna, the topic doesn’t seem so scary.
On her own path of rediscovery, little luna creates music that broaches the topics of self-discovery and introspection. She creates music for the moments in her life hopes that her journey can support others in their own. Much of luna’s work draws inspiration from the culture of the early 1970’s, especially in her music and fashion. For the last seven years, luna has taught yoga and meditation, finding the practices to be one of the best ways to get in touch with yourself. luna recently announced that she will be opening for 5 Seconds of Summer on their 'Take My Hand' tour. She will be opening for them on June 16th and 17th at the Hollywood Pallidum in Los Angeles, CA.
