“Until I’m Dead” is about following your passion and doing what you love even though you might not know what lies ahead. "I know I'm on my own. You never know what's coming your way." The song begins with a simple guitar line which is soon accompanied by bass and drums. When the vocals enter for the first verse, The Lunas win you over with their entrancing melodies and crystal clear tone singing. When James Priestner sings, there is a slight edginess to his voice, adding character that goes very well with the indie vibe of the song. The band, in return, provides a tight foundation.

Where “Until I’m Dead” truly starts to shine is when you reach the first chorus singing, “Go, you said, that this is life for me until I'm dead/Go, you said, climb up to the mountain find your head”. The hook has a memorable melody and groove that will have you listening to this song on repeat. After the first chorus, the song continues to build and progress showing off the out-standing musicianship of the band. The song features a small instrumental interlude keeping the song energetic and captivating from start to finish.
