Singer-songwriter Luke Daniel Peacock has dropped his third single of the year, The Odd Specifics. The melancholy alt-pop ballad takes its influence from 80’s synth sounds, with the singers genuine, heartfelt lyricism floating atop the dreamy soundscape.
Lyrically, the track is a critique on current social attitudes and neglect in its many forms. The song also makes observations on the overwhelmingly curated culture of social media and the fictitious space it creates.
“The Odd Specifics was written out of frustration in witnessing so much of our world in the hands of fools,” the singer said of the release. “It’s calling out neglect in many forms, but focusing on the attitudes, the ghosting and the lies that have become commonplace in Western culture.. It’s examining how life has become about whose lie and whose smile is the most convincing.”
Earlier this year, the singer released Older Then, which peaked at #2 on AMRAP, and Give Me A Reason. The musician also featured as a performer and curator of the 13th instalment of the Isol-Aid Festival. Throughout his career, Peacock has recorded, performed and toured extensively, collaborating and taking to the state with some of the most revered and respected names within the music industry, be that in his home country of Australia or globally.
