Brighton based band ‘Luna Blue’ have brought to all of us a brand new 6 track EP, funk mixed with rock, mixed with indie, what’s not to like?!
The boys from ‘Luna Blue’ are breaking into the Indie-Funk scene, and they have the arsenal of a blinding 6 track EP to show what they’ve got. Recently being picked up from management agency ‘New Legends’.
With the release of new EP ‘Nightjar‘, the band are touring and playing live gigs to promote both EP and single, ‘Borrowed Words’.
The start of this Funk-indie fusion project, starts with a sleek and groovy intro ‘Checkmate‘. This is a strong opener, that makes the intentions of the band clear, and really proves that ‘Luna Blue’ have the ability to get you hyped as well as calm the soul. As ‘Checkmate’ ends, the single for the EP, ‘Borrowed Words’ bursts on and you know that the party is really starting. For the follow up, ‘Float Away’, sweetly helps you slip deeply into the sounds of clean guitars fused with Hendrix styled solo’s and melodic riffs and notes from both vocalist ‘Tom High’ and guitarist ‘Ryan Wellman’.
Track 4, ‘Take What You Get’ brings the beat up and gets you back on the roll. Reverb on guitars, pounding vocals and punchy drum fills, are what this song brings you, in full force. Easily the dreamiest tune, ‘Welcome Home Master’ has a relaxing and weightless feel, inspired by 1975 styled soft anthems and successful in putting your mind into a sublime state. As the finisher ‘Nightjar’ is the last track, which leaves you in a positive mental state, through its intro which is heavily revolved around drum rolls brought by ‘Seb Bowen’, soft yet emotional bass lines from ‘Nick Davie’ as well as palm muted guitar, the rest of this piece has a 70’s psychedelic feel. This song is a carefully picked and diverse send off for this well-rounded debut EP.
