Toronto-artist Luna Li will leave you enchanted with her exquisite new song ‘Trying’. The release of her latest single is her first taste of new music for the year and was shared alongside equally mesmerising visuals, which features vintage film reels and scenes that feel part of a daydream.

Just like the dreamlike scenes in the visuals, her lullaby-like song channels how states of anxiety and confusion can leave you feeling bewildered and restless. On the single, Luna Li said, “Trying” is about anxiety and the feeling of desperation and sense of unreality that can happen when everything gets to be too overwhelming. The dynamics and dreamy feel of the music reflect the feeling of being dazed and restless.”

She also notes that she found herself drawn to the Song Exploder podcast, including listening to artists embracing vulnerability and opening up on various episodes.
