Dream wave duo LUNAR TWIN debut EP via Emerald & Doreen Recordings
"Dreamy sound....the vocals are rife with an aching lost effect that gives an air of slight despair. Like Edgar Alan Poe, he loved too well... and yet..and yet... This is pretty deep" - Joe Foster (Creation Records) on 'Champagne'"With ambient synth-pop and amazing vocals, this release is packed with audible ecstasy" - Slug Magazine "Rather brilliant lyrics with an affected tone fitting snugly between Nick Cave and Tindersticks' Stuart Staples with a little of Matt Berninger of The National" - Sound and Vision"Lynchian pop with a warm analogue glow. Night music for moon lovers" - Mat Handley, You, The Night & The Music (Sine FM)
"Waves crashing on a beach, intertwined with hazy reverb drenched guitars, addictive vocal’s & that 80’s influenced synth line... filled with pulses of new wave, dream pop & psychedelica with an almost bluesy vocal line" - Primal RadioFOR FANS OF: Massive Attack, Nick Cave, Tindersticks, American Music Club, Everlast
Dream-wave duo Lunar Twin presents their new EP on German boutique label Emerald & Doreen Recordings. This release features two tracks from their debut Lunar Twin EP - a new edit of their breathtaking 'Champagne' along with some rather amazing remixes, and a new edit of 'Metroplex'. This EP takes listeners on a journey from lush downtempo through chillwave territory and ultimately to the dance floor.
An international bouquet of remixers also reimagine 'Champagne' according to their own worldview. Ummagma, Mushrooms Project maintain the original indie alternative vibe in their remixes. Statickman offers up some synthpop bliss, while Woolfy and Go Satta offer the dance ticket, the latter flirting with innocent girly accompaniment. Japan's celebrated Red Bull artist Haioka present epic chillout splendour, with Romin taking us into a dark underbelly of downtempo.
Chris Murphy and Bryce Boudreau met in July 2011 at the Denver Underground Music Festival when Bryce joined as a guest of Chris’ previous gothic synth band Nightsweats. They formed Lunar Twin in October 2013, and derived the band’s name from a theory about earth having possibly had a twin moon. Inspired by space and time, as well as nature and culture, the band members record the music and vocal separately from quite a distance. Vocals for this EP were recorded in the Hawaiian rainforest at Chopo Audio in Keauu/Puna, Hawaii. All music was recorded in the high desert valley by an alkaline lake at Desert Heat Audio in Salt Lake City, USA.
Champagne (Remixes) is available for pre-order on iTunes & Amazon and will be streamable through Spotify, Rdio, etc. The band's original Lunar Twin EP is also available through Bandcamp.
