Bristol based Stay Lunar return with a dreamy new single. ‘Hello Friend‘ is has the bands finger prints all over it, floaty vibes, big hooks and beautiful pop energy that holds you warm and close.
Having already been drawn in by previous singles like ‘Not Your Fight‘ and the massively floaty ‘Dreaming That I’m Not In Love‘, it’s fair to day I’d already fallen head over heels for Bristol band Stay Lunar having raved about them to all my friends and putting them on our ones to watch list this year already. So when ‘Hello Friend’ landed in my inbox, like with any band you loves new release, I was hit with a nervous excitement, but why did I worry? This is a band that so far have always deliver and their latest single is no different. It’s metronome perfect beats set the pace for it’s gorgeous melody and highly addictive synth hooks. It’s nice to hear a little more guitar cut through and those delicate, dreamy vocals are perfectly polished. A track that rounds of the summer nicely in superb indie-dream-pop form, ‘Hello Friend’ is another sleek and captivating track from Stay Lunar and another step to the recognition they deserve.
