'Viral Hit' was chosen as the Number 1 Irish Track of the Year for Nialler9 by Broadcaster and DJ Cian Ó Cíobháin -

"There have been many songs referencing the Covid-19 pandemic, but this was one of the first and – indeed – perhaps one of the best, courtesy of Galway’s Loner Deluxe, released shortly after the nation first locked down back in the spring. The song brilliantly captures the sense of fear, confusion and hopelessness many of us felt as we slowly began to comprehend the impact this new threat might have on our lives." - nialler9.com/cian-o-ciobhains-top-irish-tracks-of-2020/

Rusted Rail is pleased to announce the release of a new song by Loner Deluxe called 'Viral Hit'. A topical track made during a bout of cabin fever during the ongoing lockdown, for this song Loner Deluxe consists of Keith Wallace (bass, beat generation, synthesizers, vocals and lyrics) and Cecilia Danell a.k.a. A Lilac Decline (electric guitar, banjo, vocals and lyrics). This song acts as a taster for the forthcoming third album by Loner Deluxe which will see the light of day on Rusted Rail later this year. An exclusive digital release via the Rusted Rail Bandcamp page this is a song for these times. Available to stream or to purchase (in these precarious pandemic days for musicians and creators).

These effects are staggering
I don't really know a thing
what is really happening?
we are here all wondering

Hibernation in the spring
lots of social distancing
we're in lockdown and shut in
is this really happening?

These effects are staggering
we don't really know a thing
no more friendly gathering
staying in just handwashing
