As we press into March the number of new albums and EPs released increase exponentially. That means there is lot of competition for our ears, well, LUUNA has put together a debut EP, Moonflower, that differs from most other EPs. The trio from York, England stands out of the crowd with their interesting blend of trip-hop, dark-pop and haunting, ethereal vocals. What is interesting about LUUNA is their ability to create so much texture on each track of the EP while maintaining a minimalistic, unbound sound in conjunction with the delicate vocals.
There is not a whole lot out in the world about LUUNA, but we do know that the BBC Radio One has featured their debut single, “Soap”, which is beautifully dark and filled with layers of sensual, airy vocals.
The two additional tracks “A Big Fat Something” and “Remedy” (the fourth song is a radio edit of “Soap”) are excellent tracks that are worthy of a 2AM show on a Saturday night in a cigar smoke-filled lounge. They have those deep blues tones and tender vocals that transports you into the corner booth sipping on a drink soaking in the sounds and atmosphere.
There is freedom in what LUUNA is creating. They are not held to any particular standards and are making music their way and it makes their music unique. Moonflower is absolutely worth a listen.
The Moonflower EP by LUUNA will be available via their website: HERE.
