On 26th of December the well known duo LunaFly released their latest EP called “Unlike you” with 5 songs and on 27th they surprised fans with another release of the Music Video for the song “This Isn’t you”.
The title song called “This isn’t you” talks about the boy who is worried about his lover’s behaviour. He doesn’t understand why she is acting so distant, why she is saying unusual things, or why she is always on her phone. Though the song he is trying to communicate with her and he is asking what is wrong. He doesn’t know if this is about a breakup or something is actually happening, he just wants things to be as they were before. The music video itself is quite simple, the 2 singers are in a coffee shop, singing to the girl, expressing their feelings, while the girl is being distant or totally ignoring them, sending the message that they are trying to express in the lyrics. The Music Video doesn’t show much, it is quite minimalist and it doesn’t have any scenery changes or action. The beat is slow and appropriate for a love song and it matches the lyrics. There is an instrumental version for the song as well, for those who would like to enjoy the beat in a more calming and relaxing way.
The next song from the album is “Like a Fire” Which is a love song in English this time. I find the English choice really impressive and a good way of approaching International fans who often feel left out because they cannot understand the lyrics. The song talks about the boy who is in love with a girl, but he feels invisible next to her and feels like his love is not enough. He doesn’t know how to talk to the girl because of the lyrics you can tell she is a popular girl who’s got everyone’s attention and he is just another guy waiting in the line for her to notice. He is not willing to wait for her forever and he is feeling used because she keeps tossing him around like a toy. The beat is quite unique and modern and matches with the lyrics, and in my opinion, this is a better song than the Title track. There is also an instrumental version of this song.
The last song called “Singing for you” is another English song that I find really interesting. The beat is slower so that it can match the love sad lyrics of the song. The song talks about a love that is impossible to happen, because the girl is gone and the guy is feeling lonely. He is doing everything to remember her, and simple action that he is doing each day reminds him of her, like watching TV or listening to music. In my opinion, this is the best song from the album, because it really touches your soul and fans can actually relate to the song. It makes you feel like the song is actually talking about a real love story that went wrong. The voices of the 2 singers match and intertwine perfectly while singing the song. It sends a really beautiful message for all the lovers that feel that their love is not enough.
