Lower Dens: Real Thing

In hazy, soft focus—with a black backdrop lit by neon pink-red light—Lower Dens lead singer Jana Hunter delivers a visual treatment for the band’s latest single “Real Thing.” Synth dominates the track, accompanied by the twang of Hunter’s electric guitar. The lyrics here, however, deliver the song’s heart—with Hunter delving into the flaws of relationships and the impact of human desire. There’s melancholy afoot, but also empowerment—all wrapped up in wisps of nostalgia.
