Touching On Time-Blurred Nostalgia With Luke Hemmings In ‘Close My Eyes’

With the release of ‘Close My Eyes’ by Luke Hemmings from his upcoming album, ‘Boy’, we're beginning to understand why the name of his debut solo tour is ‘Nostalgia For A Time That Never Existed’. 

The indie-pop-rock artist is taking on the hues of blue that have transpired throughout his in childhood, teenage years, and adulthood. These shades represent self-depreciation, confidence, depression, imagination, mourning, soothing, and stability. 

He delicately weaves in these complicated emotions and perspectives that have been bottled up over the years - in his case, this upcoming album, like ‘When Facing The Things We Turn Away From’, we can assume will showcase how he has tried to cope with himself and who he has become.

Conan Gray’s third album is full of nostalgic synths, drum kits, dreamy elements, and wavy guitars that pair with Gray’s vibrato - making the listening experience feel like you're living life with a magnetic dream filter on.
