The world is very aware that Y2K fashion is making a comeback, but is Y2K music doing the same? Serving up throwback sounds and buckets of nostalgia, indie-pop band Moonroof is here with track “Bored and Numb”. Calling on the classic boy band sounds, the warm strum of a guitar and the steady crashing of drums provide a pleasing foundation for the track. Serving up indie sensibilities whilst possessing the angsty twang synonymous with the likes of Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, the band’s vocals guide lyrics that ponder feelings of love as they transport listeners to the flip phone and Juicy Couture-filled days of the 00s.
“‘Bored and Numb’ has a 2000 nostalgic feeling,” explains the found-piece band. “It’s a song where one is trying to find the right one but can’t seem to get out of the loop of meeting people. It has the warm familiar sound which might make people want to hear it back.”
With the new track joining their already wildly successful drops such as “Honey Honey”, it is clear that the school friends-turned-band mates have set their hearts on a domination of their genre. And, with an EP on the horizon, fans can expect more stellar offerings from them very soon.
