The eclectic band's 10-track album 'Luunah' explores the themes of transition, self-awareness and acceptance of the unknown; fittingly resonant given today's chaotic landscape.
Cork alternative band Luunah have only just released their debut album of the same name, but their fanbase has been building since lead singer Sarah Beth O'Mullane formed the band while studying at CIT Cork School of Music.
Sarah-Beth, a native of Kilmurry, wrote the album's core songs throughout her final years of college after meeting fellow members Paul Brennan (drums), Lee Kennedy (bass), Emily Naughton (synth) and James Gormley (guitar).
Producer Brian Casey offered Luunah musical direction and years of expertise in his West Cork studio while the outfit created their noteworthy self-titled debut.
Dreamy electronic textures and a driving rhythm section act as a canvas for Sarah-Beth's vulnerable and frank lyrics, vivid imagery and introspective musings.
The band incorporate acoustic and electronic elements into their live set creating a sound that is retro but contemporary, inspired by St.Vincent, Metronomy, Bat for Lashes, Gorillaz and David Byrne.
Indie-alt gem 'Easy on the Eyes' is taken from Luunah, and utilises Sarah-Beth's clear, ethereal vocals and a catchy melody to create a memorable track.
Embracing the full spectrum of human emotion, Sarah-Beth writes accessible lyrics and her bandmates pair them with effortlessly snappy guitar, drums and synth beats.
