Every now and then I hear a track that instantly gives me a warm feeling inside, and this week Luna Bay are providing all the feels with their new single "Little Amsterdam."
Hailing from different parts of the UK and meeting at college in London, lead-singer and guitarist Connor O’Mara (London), bassist Sammy Penniston (Buckinghamshire), guitarist Rye Milligan (Cardigan Bay), and drummer Alex Ross (Suffolk) are revitalizing the UK indie scene.
Having already caught the ear of music aficionados John Kennedy and Mazin Tappuni at Radio X and Huw Stephens on Radio 1, their last single "Hometown" has already hit over 1 million plays on Spotify, with "Little Amsterdam" likely to do the same.
An uplifting and summary tune, there's a little bit of early Kooks about "Little Amsterdam." It's an indie-pop gem fuelled by melodic guitar riffs and Connor O'Mara's effervescent vocals that I've had on repeat all day. Luna Bay are proof indie isn't dead yet.
