SONG PICK: Luna Shadows – Nite Swim
In “Nite Swim” L.A.-based pop songwriter and producer Luna Shadows explores how a Romeo & Juliet story could have unfolded in the present day. Obviously, being in constant contact these days would have changed the story’s outcome significantly. This makes the song a summer love story on the surface, but Luna Shadows goes deeper than that in the lyrics. She explains:
“When I think of the extremely problematic R+J, a lot of their tragedy is based on farcical miscommunication that could’ve been so easily avoided in 2021. Yet in an age of instant & excessive communication, there has been a sharp rise in youth depression, suicide, and overall unhappiness. This song masquerades as euphoric but underneath raises some fairly dark questions re: technology and our mental health.”
“Night Swim” is on Luna Shadow’s upcoming album “Digital Pacific,” due out on February 12. Pre-order here. Listen to our Song Pick of the Day below:
