Night Tapes' latest offering, "loner," is a captivating piece that takes us through the realms of indie pop, weaving together ethereal vocals, subtle melancholic guitar, and a bass accompaniment that evokes a sense of youthful nostalgia and a longing for someone to be by our side. The track serves perfectly as your next self-indulgent indie coming-of-age anthem, exploring conflicting love interests that beckon us into a realm of confusion, wonder, and desire. 

The opening lyricism adds a layer of depth to the ethereal vocal quality of the band. The lines, "I've been searching for so long, for the truth," set the stage for reflective exploration. The themes of searching for authenticity and truth are echoed throughout the song, creating a desire to discover something we don’t yet fully understand.

"loner" continues to be a trophy of introspective bliss as we are brought into the verses. “All I've ever wanted was to do as I do / All I ever wanted was to feel free” and “To be all you wanted / To be made of dreams,” sings Night Tapes, echoing a conflict aided by the song's instrumentation which complements this introspective nature of the lyrics. Taken altogether, it creates a feeling that is both intimate and far removed. The arrangement is a delicate dance between dreamy pop elements and a touch of melancholy, perfectly capturing the bittersweet essence of existence.

Overall, Night Tapes has crafted a piece that not only engages the listener but invites them to lose themselves in their own coming-of-age dreamscape painted by the music. With its ethereal vocals, subtle melancholic instrumentation, and a dreamy flute finale, "loner" is here to fuel our dream states and serve as the background in your own life's soundtrack.
