Luna Rosa - Fear, Filth, Dirt & Death
Sam Jaques / 21-05-2019
Noticeably heavier than the previous endeavours of the Corby four-piece, their latest single snarls with societal vexation and hallucinatory riffage. Like Led Zeppelin munching on a Sex Pistols sandwich before taking a swig of Pink Floyd - Luna Rosa sit you down at hierarchy’s table and season your Rock ‘n’ Roll mouthful with refreshing originality. Anthemic lines like, ‘Prisoners of the state’ plunge you into the realm of grappling hooks that far surpass the reach of the band’s self-proclaimed following of a ‘disenchanted British youth’. Yet the Rock ‘n’ Roll format and punkish vocal delivery act as a vessel for a poignant message, a remembrance for the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster. The song eternalises those lost and poses a reactionary message.
Goodness shines through the murky riffs of this soaring single, with all sale proceeds going to charity. The single can be bought from the groups Bandcamp page and donations can be made via Justgiving. Through this song, Luna Rosa has not only generated sumptuous riffs but have shown the inherent healing power of music itself.
