Must Be Paid: The Lunar Keys mourn the destruction of our beautiful planet on ‘Silent Ricochet’

As the fragile world burns and turns on each other with their masks on too tight, The Lunar Keys show us what is really going on outside with their honest and well-written new single called ‘Silent Ricochet‘.

Not without positive rage and lunar love.’’ – The Lunar Keys

His vocals illuminate a bright light into the cloudy sky, there are so many that want peace but there is so much going on that needs to be solved quickly. People are being shot for no reason and there are so many wars going on for no reason — as you hold hands — and come together to show that peace is really possible.

As we rack our brains to find answers and wish that things weren’t so money orientated — we all the need to be at peace — and be able to breathe healthily, to be truly free after all.

The driving drums drop in so sweetly, as we are introduced to an authentic voice that breathes new life into the dull year of stale air, and dark clouds. This is all about the trauma about the ravaging bite that is 2020 and the rhythmically energy brought forth, is a pleasant listen from Alutepena Hughes-John. The Surrey, UK based performer speeds into the wild waters with the relevant ‘Lockdown‘.

Her voice is so smooth and authentic, her various styles and bands in her armor mesh with much enthusiasm here, this is a performer with so much to offer our sad hearts. The frustration of how the UK lockdown has been handled is so apparent, the confusion and poor management is described vividly, the shocking levels of sadness of the people is for all to see. The end is not in sight, and seeing other countries open up again, gives even more ammo to the weary-eyes souls of the once-proud nation.

With a vibrant energy that shines through the gloomy skies, the new single makes you smile as stories of sacrifice and not knowing what is right to do, and what is not. The vocals swim through the rock-filled waves with aplomb, her words are so hauntingly honest, and will make you feel better about things as you aren’t alone.

With her music style changing all the time from Steampunk to Goth dependent on her mood, the wildly talented Alutepena Hughes-John shows us all that creativity is alive and strong on ‘Lockdown‘. The citizens of the UK will just have to be a bit more patient for a while until the rain has passed, for this is a time that has shown who the great leaders are, and who are the ones that need to sit down, and leave big decisions to wiser souls.
