Philly trio Lunison strut a confident rock infectiousness on new single “Name 3 Songs,” described as “an ode to a lover who has no interest in my music career.” They continue: “Regardless, I’ve made the decision to half-heartedly commit to a dalliance with the quip, ‘you, my love, don’t need to name three songs to put my t-shirt on.’ Rock snobbery be damned.”
Twangy guitar distortion and a moody vocal lead, with shades of Manic Street Preachers, excel during the opening verses — then traversing compellingly into an impactful hook, marked by jangly guitar tones and a crisply effective aura. The “1-2-3-4,” vocal count-in to the warming, textured verses plays cohesively, and “Name 3 Songs” continues a grippingly melodic rock appeal throughout — capped off by harmonious, wordless vocal soaring and a return to delectably jangly guitar tones.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
