Glenn Lumanta’s latest single is “Rapture,” a song that’ll leave you in the perfect mood. The song also has an accompanying music video.
“Rapture” is the dream you don’t want to wake up from. It has a smooth and luminous sound that keeps you in a fresh, easygoing mood. Lumanta gives us a delightful and ethereal voice mixed with mellow, yet breathtaking production. Showing off his polished vocals, he provides riffs full of soul and rhythm. Opposite to its happy and upbeat message, however, the meaning itself is quite dark. Lumanta sings about the end of the world. He seems to think it’s inevitable, but still somehow imagines himself as being able to find love within all the chaos. In truth, it’s a getaway piece for when you feel like your entire world is crumbling down around you and you can only trust your lover. So, stream Glenn Lumanta’s “Rapture” to hear a song that turns an apocalypse into a daydream.
