Combining pop, soul and electronic sensibilities, LUNIR are an artist that refuses to be pigeonholed. Cubs feels effortlessly cool from the offset, with Becky Sikasa’s rich, sultry vocal feeling instantly reminiscent of the likes of Solange or Emily King. The pair’s flawless harmonies soar effortlessly over jangling guitar twangs and pulsating drum beats to create an undeniably addictive piece of feel-good alt-pop.
Talking about the single, David Scobie elaborates, “I recently discovered I’m now too big to navigate between the branches of trees and began reminiscing about my childhood friend and I running carefree through the forest like a pair of cubs. This track is about this feeling, like a wild freedom where opportunity for joy abounds.”
