Canadian Luke MacDonald is chasing luma, which is a multi-hyphenate project that explores some of life’s most challenging yet fulfilling themes via beat-driven alternative pop with the release of “motions.”
chasing luma told us “In the process of trying to forget everything I once knew about creating music and starting from scratch, I was met with a lot of frustration and roadblocks. At the time of writing this song, I was not in a particularly healthy headspace. So I dealt with that in one of the only ways I knew how to – which was to plug my guitar into an amp, set up a microphone on a stand, and to belt out my frustrations — and just hoping something good would come out of me. luckily on that day, ‘motions’ basically wrote itself. I remember just screaming the first words of the chorus “i’ll come back, yeah” almost through tears. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that moment! motions’ has a bit of a claustrophobic feeling to it, feeling trapped or stuck in a place. but I think this song is the sound of having hope to break through, and addressing what’s holding you back from being where you want to be.”
