Genre-defying sister duo ALT BLK ERA have unveiled their new single ‘Rockstar: LUNAR’. A stark contrast to the trap metal sound for which they’ve become known, the new single showcases a very different side to this exciting new act.
The deep message, gentle piano and emotional vocals of ‘Rockstar: LUNAR’ is a sincere and polar response to their popular trap metal single ‘Rockstar: SOLAR’, an aggressive track packed with heavy riffs and scream rap vocals.
ALT BLK ERA comment: “Rockstar: LUNAR’ offers an alternate view of the message carried in our earlier TRAP METAL single ‘Rockstar: SOLAR’ – which was full of scream rap, romanticising the lifestyle. This song takes on a much more sombre tone.
“It highlights that all that glitters is not gold – by exploring the gaslighting which can occur in harmful relationships. It then grows and develops to show – that the way out is through self-love. We can imagine our listeners lying on their beds and being totally transported by this song.”
With a thoughtful and mature reflection on emotionally harmful relationships, the ‘Rockstar: LUNAR’ story leads listeners on a journey towards self-love, growth and empowerment.
The sisters don’t believe in being restricted in their art and continue to express the complexities of human nature with ‘SOLAR & LUNAR’ versions of their singles.
Their music is also a direct reflection of their own personalities with Nyrobi being the SOLAR: wild, free-spirit energy, and with Chaya possessing the LUNAR: calm, deep-in-thought energy.
Since forming in 2022 ALT BLK ERA have been picking up unstoppable organic momentum, boasting 42k followers on Instagram, 15k on TikTok, and previous single ‘Off With Their Heads‘ boasting 50k streams on Spotify since its release in December 2022. The duo have also been confirmed for many soon-to-be-announced high-profile festival slots this summer, and will play their first international show next month in Switzerland.
