Oak Cliff’s own Luna Luna finally released their newest song just two weeks ago, on October 23rd. The new synth-heavy track is titled “Time” and features a hint of Latin sound and all the hallmarks of a hit indie rock ballad. The song itself is a commentary on time’s tendency to get away from us, and how it keeps going “on and on.” Overall, it stays true to Luna Luna’s signature style.
“Time” is an excellent example of Luna Luna’s ability to combine retro indie rock music with their heritage Latin sound, a recurring them in their music. As a band, Luna Luna can be categorized as both indie rock and LatinX. Though they all hail from Dallas and still reside in the area, each member of the band is of Hispanic descent. They utilize their indie rock theme as a way to get their LatinX sound into the US mainstream. It’s common throughout all of their songs to feature hints of traditional Latin sound, whether that be from switching to Spanish lyrics or using horns or other classic instruments.
Luna Luna’s legacy
Luna Luna’s unique music has been a staple in the Dallas-Fort Worth since 2015. They released their first official album back in 2018, titled “For Lovers Only.” Prior to “For Lovers Only,” Luna Luna had released multiple singles, many of which were featured on their first album. They had also collaborated with several other well-known LatinX-Indie artists, including LYTA and ASH. Luna Luna also released songs made with DJ JAKEGATEWOOD of Fort Worth and Pretty Boy Aaron of Dallas. Though only being a part of Dallas’s music scene for a short time, Luna Luna has made a name for themselves due to their unique style. We believe the band has what it takes to be an indie rock great, and look forward to what’s next from them. You can listen to their newest song, “Time,” on Spotify now.
