Swinging back into the alt-pop scene, rising star LONA unveils his latest sensational release ‘Darkest Days’.
Laced with softly melancholic guitar riffs, LONA’s gravely rock-edged vocal performance punches through to reflect the rawness of the song’s deeply personal core message. Contrasting with the captivating pop-infused melody, the heartfelt and vulnerable lyricism sees LONA speak from first-hand experience about looking to the light at the end of the tunnel to pull you through life’s tests. Reflecting this idea of battling through the tunnel, the track’s video sees a spot lit LONA focus on the light to overcome life’s darker moments.
Speaking on the track, LONA explains “Darkest Days is a tale of two people struggling in a relationship. It’s about when the person you love is lost and they feel like there is no way out of the black vacuum inside their head. The song is about being able to battle through these times. It’s about knowing that life won’t always be like this even though you may see no way out. I personally know that the darkest days don’t last forever and that’s what this song is really about. I saw no way out - but there was and the people closest to me got me through my darkest times. I wrote this song for the people who may not have other people to get them through. You’ve got me.”
Already building serious heat with critical acclaim from the likes of CLASH and WONDERLAND, 2021 continues to be a stellar year for LONA as he prepares for his slot at the Isle of Wight Festival where he is opening the main stage for Liam Gallagher.
Continuing to enthrall fans and tastemakers alike with his beautifully honest song writing and hypnotic vocal performances, LONA’s rock-infused pop anthems underline him as a seriously notable artist while he carves his name into 2021 and beyond.
