Lunarcode is a brand new band from Los Angeles, California. Born out of the pandemic, three friends came together to make music when each of their jobs were put on hold. On April 30, 2021 the band released the video to their debut single, “Heartbreak.” The powerful rocker is a story of dating in the 21st century. In the age of ghosting, some folks have found creative new ways to break hearts. The new single from Lunarcode tells that tale from the perspective of the ghosted.
“Heartbreak” opens with a brief guitar intro and soon kicks into an upbeat and percussive Rock groove. The energy continues unabated as the band dolls out some Arena Rock power. The track lives in a space somewhere between Hard Rock and Soulful Pop. It’s like Maroon 5, but with more Metal. Vocalist Vincenzo reaches stratospheric heights and packs plenty of soul. Guitarist Ronny shifts effortlessly from Metal to Pop and from Blues back to Rock. Drummer Jason is in lock step with the groove and also flexes plenty of flash. Avid film buffs, the band produced an excellent, dramatic boxing-themed video for the song starring and co-directed by Jessica Gillette.
