Zero Point Red is a teaser from Lunarin‘s new album Duae, which is set to drop tomorrow. The new release continues the band’s fascination with gloomy art-rock while digging deeper into their musical roots of grunge and classical music. Incorporating sample and synthesizers into their sound, they retain their heaviness while sculpting a densely-layered soundscape.

This album is a diary of events, thoughts, ideas and varying forms of psychoses that took place since their debut album The Chrysalis in 2006. Through a trilogy of songs like ‘Midas’, ‘Red’ and the Alice-In-Chains-esque ‘Serpentine’, the rock trio creates a movement in three levels and gain an epiphany in the final one. Lead single ‘Zero Point Red’ was specifically written for local filmmaker Jason Lai’s Brother No. 2, a documentary about the Khmer Rouge, touching on themes of reconciliation and resignation.

Describing the album as “a diary, a journal, a journey”, it has certainly been so for Lunarin. Duae charts their growth as musicians given that they step into the realm of home recording and building their own studio. The album is produced by the band at their home studio and mastered by Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering, USA.
