After making quite the stir at BIGSOUND 2018, Canberra-based alternative-rock quartet Moaning Lisa have just unveiled their grungy, dream-laden new single ‘Comfortable’ – lifted from their forthcoming EP ‘Do You Know Enough?’ (due out on October 19 via Hysterical Records / Father/Daughter).
Floating elegantly with its steady rhythmic section, reverb-soaked guitars and sombre melodies drenched in sweet harmonies, ‘Comfortable’ hits all the right strings, including those of the heart.
Lead singer Charlotte Versegi shines a light on the theme of the song, explaining: "Comfortable was written during that in-between period of dating. It's a confident, albeit sardonic, journey from accepting to celebrating being by yourself”.
The track finds its extra gear in its soaring chorus, shining with a wall of guitars and, at times, emotively-driven, distant vocals. Additional fierce melody variations rear their head on the up-tempo bridge, before the outro winds everything down again to close out a perfectly executed rollercoaster of dynamics.
With a sense of sincerity and incredibly clever songwriting, ‘Comfortable’ is nothing short of a masterpiece set to dominate the airwaves and playlists as an anthem of summer 2018.
