Lunavela – “People That You Know”


“People That You Know” is the latest track from Lunavela, the project of New Zealand-based singer/songwriter Steve Mathieson (formerly frontman of Collapsing Cities). Following up January’s “Pandering Meandering,” Mathieson again shows a melodic sound with elements of jangle-pop and rock. Fluttering guitar strums and shimmering keys complement steady vocals to start, culminating in a lovely chorus with dual-vocal appeal amidst the guitar/pianointerplay. Twangier guitar fixtures and a heavier bass line excel past the three-minute mark, driving to a darker yet effective conclusion.

The project was featured previusly with the tracks “Burn For You” and “Pandering Meandering.”

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2022’ Spotify playlist.
