Lunchbox - "Over Way Too Soon"

We're a week away from the new album from Lunchbox and the Oakland duo have another single from that album. "Over Way Too Soon" is everything we love from Lunchbox. It's an upbeat, almost summery draped in 60's AM radio vintage vibes and 90's indie rock sensibilities... which I guess is also vintage at this point. The horns in "Over Way Too Soon" are particularly groovy and truly create the ambiance of the song.

Lunchbox explain their single and video: "'Over Way Too Soon' plays with themes of love, death and impermanence against the backdrop of the ever-changing Oakland cityscape. Singer/ghost Donna McKean haunts guitarist Tim Brown across the sites of their shared personal past and the gentrifying public present. At once love letter to Oakland and requiem for lost love, the song and video are a pop meditation on how nothing, from favorite bars to sites of first dates, can ever stay the same. 'Over Way Too Soon' is about all that’s lost, and what remains."

You can watch the video for "Over Way Too Soon" below. After School Special, the upcoming album from Lunchbox, will be out October 30 on Slumberland Records. You can pre-order a copy of the album here. For more on Lunchbox, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
