Lo Moon have today released their first new song since 2018. The track, entitled Dream Never Dies, was produced by the band and Yves Rothman (Yves Tumor, Miya Folick). Filled with piano accents, sprawling guitars, and frontman Matt Lowell’s signature soaring vocals punctuating the chorus, Dream Never Dies is equal parts early 2000’s Brit rock, the ache of summer nostalgia, reverb-soaked instruments, and one of the best melodies the nascent, critically-acclaimed band has ever written. It’s the sound of a band whose scope has widened in wholly stunning ways.
A video for the song has been released today as well, directed by Michael Hili (The Killers, Lemon Twigs, John Carroll Kirby). It takes the viewer on a journey through the architecture of dreams, expectations and hope.
Dream Never Dies is the first new song since their self-titled debut — a dark, luscious collection of songs full of crescendo rock and sparkling electronics — spanned the breadth of human highs and lows. The record could sit happily among the likes of Talk Talk, Roxy Music, early Coldplay, and the cinematic scope of Sigur Ros.
Says Lowell about the song, “As I get older, I’ve become more and more nostalgic about my youth. I had way less anxiety, I didn’t fear losing the people closest to me, or have to face the bigger questions of life. Hope and optimism were just a little bit easier back then. I work hard not to let the complexities of life suck the hope out of me. This song, if nothing else, is a reminder to try my best and not let that happen.”
Lo Moon will be touring through the U.S. and Europe opening for The War On Drugs next year. They will perform at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on 16th April 2022.
