Review: "You" - Luna Bay

Moving away from home is a huge step to take. It's a massive change and can impact several facets in life, including the relationships with the people you grew up with. Luna Bay explores feelings about those changes with their new single, "You." The track reflects on how everyone changes, for better or for worse, and how life goes on even after you move away. "You" is written as a letter to yourself, acknowledging the unchanging feelings for your hometown and the people in it. Deep down, those feelings are still there and you'll always have a bit of nostalgia for where you grew up.

Luna Bay's "You" is brimming with a bittersweet, nostalgic energy. The guitar-laden track is animated and anthemic, featuring driving beats and vibrant guitar riffs. Accompanying the song's reflective lines, the lead singer's crisp vocals deliver infectious melodies that feel both happy and sad. The sound created in "You" is reminiscent of The 1975 and Deaf Havana, masterfully mixing pop rock, indie electronic, and indie rock together. Some similar artists to Luna Bay include Bombay Bicycle Club, Corella, Holly Humberstone, and Only The Poets. Between the song's relatable message and irresistible sound, "You" is a compelling listen that deserves to be played again and again.

Since their debut in 2019, indie rock band Luna Bay has been steadily on the rise. Their early singles have gained the support from Huw Stephens (Radio 1), Jack Saunders, and John Kennedy (Radio X). With the release of their single, "Little Amsterdam," Luna Bay was added to the Radio 1 Introducing playlist and became one of the most played artists on BBC Radio Wales. Having supported acts like Nothing But Thieves, The Academic, and Declan McKenna, Luna Bay has gone on to sell out headline shows of their own. Some of their popular releases include "Call the Night," "Hometown," "20 Signs," and "Blue."
