“Melancholy and darkness, and dissonant, uncomfortable music, resonates with us, for whatever reason,” says singer and spokesman Craig Johnson. “The new record is more melancholy than dissonant. I feel we're just opening up a bit more on this record.”
Forming in Leeds in early 2013, Autobahn blew audiences across the North away with one of the most intense and visceral live shows in recent years. Encapsulating the landscape of their Yorkshire home, their sound soars from the harsh post-industrial concrete of the city right through to the endless Pennine expanses on its periphery. Following the release of two self-titled EPs, AUTOBAHN released their debut album, Dissemble, on August 2015 via Tough Love (recorded with Matt Peel). The band built their own studio in Leeds to record their second album 'The Moral Crossing' which will be released on November 3rd. 2017.
Lunar spiller drømmende synth-pop med stærke melodier og fængende lydbilleder. Musikken kredser om den klassiske sangskrivning inspireret af John Lennon og David Bowie og drager elementer fra det mere drømmende univers, der dyrkes af kunstnere som Pink Floyd og Tame Impala.
Sangskrivningen tager udgangspunkt i gennemgående temaer som tvivl, tro, foragt og kærlighed.
Lunar udgav i efteråret debut-EP'en, "Mirrors". Ep'en fik en del opmærksomhed. Blandt andet er andet nummer på EP'en, "Lucy Told" blevet valgt som Ugens Kanon på DR Karrierekanonen.
Nordic Music Review skriver følgende om EP'en: "Lunar are certainly a band not afraid to look at things differently, writing innovative clever music and interesting lyrics that are worthy of further consideration. The melodic sections show that they're a band that can also write a good tune, and even if they are undoubtedly still developing their songwriting, 'Mirrors' is a weighty and admirable debut".
Lunar består af Christian Therkildsen (Vokal, Guitar, Keys), Viktor Kongsbak (Saxofon, Synth), Benjamin Kollerup (Bas), Oscar Wetche (Keys, Synth) og Johan Knudsen (Trommer).
