British music outfit Blue Lupin return today with a grunge-inspired new single entitled ‘Surface of the Sun’.
Lyrically, the song tells of the trauma that comes with being in a toxic relationship, while the production presents listeners with a beautifully intense and gritty fusion of alternative rock and shoegaze.
“‘Surface of the Sun’ is a song about a toxic relationship and really testing the limits of what you can handle. Although it captures a painful period in my life, I find it really energising and cathartic the way it came out. The original demo was almost like a stripped back Broken Social Scene, but once Owen Lewis [Producer] got his hands on it, he managed to impart more of my shoegaze influences like My Bloody Valentine. His production took it to a different place and it was clear that he just ‘got it’ and had a vision about how to bring out the best in the song, which was so fun to hear.” – Joanna Wolfe, Blue Lupin
Garnering support from the likes of BBC Introducing, Dan Digs and Get Some, Blue Lupin continue to build momentum with each release. More new music will be unveiled between January and March next year.
