The beautifully melodic “Rollercoaster” is a gem of a track from Peach Luffe, exuding a growing pop sound with heart-tugging strings. The shifting structural parts, ranging from understated and yearning (01:26) to bursts of vibrancy and realization (02:22), reflects the ups-and-downs that relationships tend to experience. The various components — from the smooth guitars and infectious vocal spark to the chamber-pop production — all work in unison to craft a song that entices replays.
Peach Luffe previously released music under the name Jong SL, impressing last year with the track “Paralyzed.” Peach Luffe puts the artist’s hooky songwriting on even greater display.
“‘Rollercoaster’ is about temporary emotions taking a toll on a relationship,” the artist says. “Every relationship has its ups and downs and I tried to portray that in song. As the song progresses, it changes in energy in each section to represent the waves of emotion during the relationship.”
“Rollercoaster” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2020’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
