When the new post-hardcore supergroup L.S. Dunes debuted “2022” at Riot Fest, singer Anthony Green called it “the most fucked-up song I ever wrote.” He elaborated, “It’s about learning how to get through shit so that you don’t want to kill yourself every day.” The studio version is out now, and it rips.
“2022” originally appeared on Green’s solo album Boom. Done. but was removed from streaming services a month later. It now reemerges as the first song on Past Lives, L.S. Dunes’ debut album. It makes for a grand introduction. “If I can’t make it ’til 2022,” Green sings, “at least we’ll see how long I can swim.” The music matches that vibe, creating a swirling current of sound for Green’s voice to escape from. It’s a powerful and catchy rock song, so check it out below.
Past Lives is out 11/11 on Fantasy.
