One of the coolest songs I've heard in a while comes to me from Melbourne Australia. Luna Ruggiero is an alternative artist that's looking to make a name for herself with her dark and smoky vocals that made me immediately think of one of my favorite female music icons, Amy Lee. The way Luna expresses herself in this song has a breathless ease and an atmospheric quality that fills up all the space in the room. Her voice is HUGE and she knows exactly how to use it.
The synth is gigantic in this song. It's got a surge and swell to it that pulls you out into this musical journey of letting go and walking away. Sometimes we have to burn bridges in order to maintain our sanity and our happiness and if that means we cut out the negative in our lives like cancer, then that's what we have to do. Core out what's rotten and make a clean break. Luna is doing an amazing job of expressing that in this song and it just makes you close your eyes and get swept away in her journey.
She's a relatively new artist and I can't wait to hear more from her and this is her debut single. It was a very smart choice to use a song like this as her break out single because it cuts through the chatter of so many other young female vocalists. I think she's got an amazing voice that's super distinctive and that's going to give her an edge above so many other female singers in the industry today. You're going to be able to hear her (and I think she can go much harder with her vocals or softer and they'll both sound amazing) and know immediately that you're listening to a Luna Ruggiero song.
