Track Of The Day: La Lune – ‘Grape Soda’

Brighton based dream-pop artist La Lune has shared her sugary new single ‘Grape Soda’ and its a bitter sweet exploration of “love, lustful addiction, and self-destruction”. She’s also shared a hand-illustrated music video to accompany the track, made by graphic designer and fashion student Eva Kubacka.

La Lune has been writing, producing and releasing music with a DIY ethos since she was 18. Now at 20 years old, she’s beginning to capture the attention of BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 6, NME, and Spotify, landing a spot on New Music Friday UK with her recent collaborative release, ‘Heartstop’.

Her refreshing and ambient sounds are reflected in her approach to promoting and sharing her own music too. Masked beneath her pseudonym and with a subtle social media presence, La Lune is using obscurity to protest against the over-sexualisation of women in music, stating that her music should be listened to and judged at “face value”.

With songs as catchy as ‘Grape Soda’ and mesmerising visuals to match, we’re sure La Lune’s approach to music will be respected for what it is: pure and well produced. Watch the video for her new single below and follow La Lune on Facebook for more updates.

VIDEO PREMIERE: Saint Genevieve – ‘Lies’

In her latest single ‘Lies’, Saint Genevieve chronicles the search for light in darkness after the end of a toxic relationship. Inspired by great artists, both in paint and in music, Saint Genevieve’s music places her emotions on a melodic canvas, combining dominating ​vocals​ ​with​ ​crisp ​production​ ​to​ ​gift​ ​listeners​ ​with​ ​an​ ​audible​ ​artwork.

This movement from light to darkness is represented by the haunting echoes at the beginning of the song, as well as resonant guitar twangs that create an inescapable sense of anxiety, with the sentiment of relief depicted by the sunset at the finale of the ‘Lies’ official video.

Saint Genevieve does not seek to imitate other artists and with training that stretches from classical to jazz, she mixes the finest of global​ ​music​ ​to​ ​create​ ​her​ ​own​ ​unique​ ​sound. Watch the video for ‘Lies’ below, and follow Saint Genevieve on Facebook for more updates.
