Lo Moon – produced by Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) and Francois Tetaz (Gotye) – features previously released songs “Loveless,” “This Is It,” and “Thorns,” as well as guest turns by The War On Drugs’ Adam Granduciel and Charlie Hall.
The record – a cool, dark, meditative exploration of bittersweet sadness and cathartic joy – could sit as happily among the likes of The xx as it could Talk Talk, Depeche Mode, early Coldplay, or the cinematic scope of Sigur Ros.
Lo Moon made themselves at home on the road throughout last year – opening for Phoenix, The War On Drugs, London Grammar, Glass Animals, Ride, and more – and 2018 sees them rapidly becoming one of the best new live bands to emerge over the last few years. The New York Times’ esteemed music critic Jon Pareles called them one of the Top 10 artists he saw at Governor’s Ball 2017, alongside the likes of Lorde and Chance The Rapper.
Early Praise for Lo Moon:
“Lo Moon is one of those young bands that seemed to come out of nowhere, fully formed.” – The Los Angeles Times
“That mystery suits the band and keeps the focus on the music: big, gorgeous, sweeping, well-crafted songs that convey a lot of emotion but leave a lot of room for, well, mystery.” – WFUV
“Shimmering, immersive and otherworldly, ‘Loveless’ is a stop-you-in-your-tracks kind of song…The song has a big sound that’s as intimate as it is anthemic; all seven minutes are worthy of your attention.” – NPR
“They delivered a rousing set of beat-heavy dream pop with the gusto of seasoned vets.” – LA Record
“This four-piece, mysterious band has totally got the whole cool, dark vibes thing down to a tee…Lo Moon’s authentic passion and energy takes their coolness to a whole other level, a real level, which emerges through ultimate guitar shredding and genuine, kind words between songs.” – WXPN The Key
