Fans of Y2K-era Euro-Dance will fall in love with Luna Morgenstern’s latest single, ‘IDONTOU’.
While the production of the song presents listeners with a euphoric mix of nostalgic electronica and future-forward pop, the hard-hitting lyrics look at the troubling cases of assault that have come to light within the Dutch music industry.
“The surfacing of several cases of sexual assault at ‘The Voice Of Holland’ last year heavily triggered me. I was so angry and appalled by the victim’s accounts, that I had to transfer these emotions into a song. I wanted to write an anthem to all people who have experienced any form of sexual assault in their life. It shouldn’t be a sad song, but one that could be played at a party and that would make people want to dance, in order to reclaim ownership over their bodies.
For the lyrics, I took suggestive phrases and cat calls I had (over)heard countless times in my work surrounding or while going out and randomly connected them into a monologue that the protagonist has to endure. While the verses are kind of twisted, I wanted the message of the chorus to be very clear: you don’t own me and I don’t owe you, period.”
The track continues to showcase this Amsterdam-based, self-taught producer’s impressive skills, and serves as a taster to the their future releases – which will be inspired by the notion of ‘living life without limits’.
