Bristol dream-pop outfit Stay Lunar broke into our lives in 2019, picking up support slots for the likes of Little Comets and SPINN, airplay from BBC Introducing and places among Spotify playlists.
Not Your Fight is their latest work, and a testament to their growth. Bombay Bicycle Club-esque vocals met with bright, bubbling synths make for a blissful, uplifting slice of dream-pop which could easily be plucked straight from a 2013 Swim Deep or JAWS album. Sure, it’s not a new or groundbreaking sound, but it does take you right back to easier, more joyous times; adding a hint of warmth to these dark and gloomy times.
Speaking about the track, the band say, “We want to make music that makes people feel something, but simultaneously want to dance.”
“We really enjoy capturing melancholic subjects in their rawest form, then crafting them into upbeat and energetic songs. For us, it spins difficult topics and situations into hopeful, optimistic pieces.”
