Moonrunner83 blends indie alt-pop with synthwave in his cover of the hidden ’80s gem, “Lovers In A Dangerous Time” by Bruce Cockburn. Listen to the cover now below.
“Lovers In A Dangerous Time” is a fitting ’80s anthem brought to life again during a time of tremendous global strife and uncertainty. Blending smooth synthwave elements with spacious guitars, analog warmth, and swirling vocal harmonies, Moonrunner83 creates a stark and beautiful contrast between lingering melancholy and distant hope — hope felt by those young and those in love. We live in dangerous times. Empty streets. Strangers passing each other with nothing shared between them except a faraway smile and a mutual understanding of the weight of such a burdensome situation. In a rare instance without an accompanying feature artist, Moonrunner83’s solo effort on “Lovers In A Dangerous” is a passionate, heartfelt reminder of how very human and fragile we all are.
