Lunar Division – “Young Lady”


Oklahoma City-based rockers Lunar Division impress with “Young Lady,” representing the first single from their upcoming album Monuments. Clanking percussion and murmuring guitar tones drive into a confident vocal opening — “young lady in my bed, or are we in yours, it remains to be said,” — with palpably climactic appeal, and a ’90s rock nostalgia with shades of The Pixies. “I know the drill,” the vocals proclaim as twangier guitars and fervent percussion enter; lyrical acknowledgements show willing to play “the game,” as long as they can see their beloved again.

“It would be nice to hear where you have been,” the vocals continue, furthering the sense of yearning. “I’ll play this game if you can promise that I’ll see you tonight.” The title-touting resonance commands with its replaying-inducing infection, especially captivating as wordless vocal layers mesh cohesively rounding the two-minute turn. A steady, snarling angst leads this riveting alt-rocker from Lunar Division.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
