Lunar Isles Shares Bloom + Drops Visitor EP
It’s easy to get caught up in the American indie scene, for obvious reasons. But, when it comes to dreamy indie pop, you’ve got to step outside that to discover the best Monday gems, like South Korea’s Lunar Isles. The group just dropped their Visitor EP, and this last single is definitely worthy of a few minutes of your time. I love the steadying of the musical elements; they seem satiated, not looking for more, just happy with their existence. That patience and self-awareness allows the vocals to really charm, matching the mood with this affected dreaminess that just caresses your ear caverns. There’s some slight lifts in the guitar work, making sure the song isn’t merely satisfied with being, and that adds just enough to make the song rewarding on repeat listens.
