We all have an afterglow. A digital footprint we leave behind once we pass away. It’s probably grown exponentially since COVID-19. All those Skype meetings, Zoom quiz nights, TikTik scrolls, all a pixilated reality, but a source of communication in the current nightmarish world. Latenight Honeymoon’s new single, Afterglow, delves deep into such issues, searching for a morsel of optimism.
Afterglow is a beacon of hope, and it’s shining brightly. Investigating the fear and concern surrounding a global pandemic, the band passionately exclaim the effects it has on an individual, a relationship and a household. Being stuck inside twenty-four hours a day is unhealthy, and this song is a prime example of this. The emotion transpires through each instrument, every word muttered from Ted Joyce’s mouth, we’re all fed up, and technology is our safety blanket.
Taken from their forthcoming EP, Codependency: B.S.T, Afterglow is an indie masterpiece packed full of meaning, remorse and enthusiasm. A beautiful reminder of the intricacies of the internet in an epidemic, Latenight Honeymoon are a band to look out for. Now go and play this song and video on repeat. Cheers.
