Sonic Descent go back to the future with their new single and lyric video Luna Tick — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The first pre-launch view of the Southern California rock outfit’s upcoming album Full Throttle, the dynamically nostalgic Luna Tick blends ’70s, rock, ’80s synth-wave a la Devo and a ’90s sensibility — all turbo-charged with contemporary sonics to forge a high-energy sonic blast of indie-rock futurism. Boasting a perfectly paralleled balance of originality and familiarity, the track gives listeners something fresh yet instantly familiar.

Sonic Descent is the new project from artist Jeff Thill, who has put together a diligently crafted 12-song album of space-themed tracks that are versatile and multifaceted. Thill, a veteran of the prominent Southern California scene, has been highly active since the ’80s, working with a multitude of artists. With Sonic Descent, his highly skilled musicianship, production value and artistic merit come to the forefront in a way that showcases his talent effectively. As an avid fan of science fiction, Thill’s passion for space-themed concepts play a vital role in his signature sound. With the album still in its post-production and distribution stages, Luna Tick makes a vivid impression that sets the tone for the rest of the record.
