Lunar Sounds are a trio from Leeds and this is their debut single “Reputation”. The song dissects the patriarchal nature of modern dating, and how it’s all just…weird.
“The song questions how men view women, and how women often feel like they need to portray some ideal version of themselves to be found attractive – especially with dating apps and hookup culture” says Chesca of the band. It’s only once you take a look into it that you realise just how bizarre it is. Everything is done through an app. All effort is spent designing the perfect message rather than having a genuine conversation and if you fail once? SWIPE. BYE BYE.
Scrappy guitars, frantic drums and passionate group vocals fill the airwaves with pure Punk intensity, allowing “Reputation” to get its message across properly. It’s hard hitting, full of emotion and power and straight up exciting to hear. Definitely a great way to kick off a band.
