Review: "TIMEZONE" - Olivia Lunny

Olivia Lunny exudes effortless versatility in first release of the year, “TIMEZONE.” As the old saying goes, distance makes the heart grown fonder, and that maxim is the embodiment of this new bop. Many fear space from their loved ones as an intangible force keeping them apart, but “TIMEZONE” hits the nail on the head where time apart is not always a bad thing. The yearn in your soul for your people to always be near never dissipates, but you can change your mindset, and let the pain power you to become a stronger version of yourself you could only dream of. There is great energy that comes with independence. Life is truly in your hands to make it what you want. Your person is always just a flight away, and when they return, it’ll feel like they never left. Take the time when they’re gone to be selfish. Push yourself to try new things. Find solace in being alone, and when they inevitably return, love them hard to make up for lost time. Being comfortable being alone is a trait many wish for, and it’s an essential quality for self-growth and long-lasting relationships. No matter what timezone your other half resides in, your hearts are always on the same clock, and the time you get to spend together transcends any city, any country, and any universe. Cherish those moments apart as space to grow and time to better yourself, and when you finally reconnect, every second apart will make perfect sense.

“TIMEZONE” is an alt-pop track seeped with hypnotic beats and strong feelings of love and desire. This song was inspired by a series of events in Olivia Lunny’s life. She moved to the west coast and was faced with her own struggles of missing family and the chaos of long distance relationships. She had to find the right time to call her dad while he was in India, and they were juggling timezones on opposite sides of the world. “TIMEZONE” is an upbeat, head-banging bop that has a deep message we all can relate to. It is unapologetic, carefree, and as Olivia says, “makes me want to drive along the ocean with the windows down!” The music video, directed by Sam Leviton and produced by Jack Birchler, perfectly encapsulates the themes and vibe of the song. Give it a watch for 3 minutes and 8 seconds of escapism, intimacy, and a visual, cinematic masterpiece.

Olivia Lunny is an undeniable pop powerhouse. This Canadian singer/songwriter continues to deliver a dynamic breed of alt-pop full of emotional depth that is instantly infectious within first listen. She picked up a guitar at age 12 and wrote her first song, soon ascending to national fame earning a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for Pop Artist of the Year at the ripe age of 17. Olivia then scored a Top 40 hit with her 2019 single, “I Got You.” After releasing her debut EP, To The Ones I Loved, Olivia Lunny became one to watch out for. She has continued to drop songs with entrancing vocals and lyrics that resonate, and she has worked with some of the biggest artists in the business, including Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Yachty, and Bhad Bhabie. Olivia has garnered more than 15 million global streams and has gained support from the most prestigious in media. We can’t wait to see what she does next, and we know she’ll be on repeat in each and every timezone!
