Los Angeles four-piece Lo Moon—singer and chief songwriter Matt Lowell, bassist Crisanta Baker, guitarist Sam Stewart, and drummer Sterling Laws—emerged out of nowhere in 2018 with their debut release, “Loveless", a slow-burning epic that transfixed everyone who heard it. The song set out a paradigm that the band honed over the course of two critically acclaimed albums. Songs that shift and stretch, moving from quiet to loud and back again, tweaking the rock template with impressionistic touches and ambient interludes, but anchored by solid gold, melodic pop hooks, Lowell’s affecting falsetto, and lyrics that are intensely personal, if not painfully honest, yet strangely elliptical.

After spending the past few years on the road supporting tours for The War On Drugs, Phoenix, Glass Animals, Air, London Grammar, Chvrches, Metric, Muna and The Lemon Twigs, the band’s third outing (to be released in ’24), revolves entirely around a single unifying idea, of life and personality forged from the revelatory moments of lived experience. It’s the singular work of a group of musicians whose confidence and abilities have not only scaled the heights of their ambitions but outstripped them.
