Track Of The Day 9/11 – Lunch Money Life


Lunch Money Life exist on their own terms. A staunchly independent group, the band’s debut album ‘Immersion Chamber’ seemed to break every boundary possible, melding together jazz, left-field electronics, and a whole lot more besides.

Subsequent EPs ‘Tarmac The Lake’ and ‘Under The Mercies’ expanded on their stellar promise, introducing sharp-edged pop melodies amid their helter-skelter experimentation.

The five-piece close out the year with a new single, and ‘Telecommunion’ ranks as one of their most riveting constructions. Powered by warped synths and carefully auto-tuned vocals, there’s an alien quality to their approach which is truly arresting.

Opening themselves out to further questioning, ‘Telecommunion’ is a startling slice of sci-fi drenched pop music. The band comment…

“’Telecommunion’ is a song of unrequited love set in a dystopian, technocratic future. Rejected phone-calls and answering machines foster an increasingly delusional internal monologue.”

Tune in now.
