“A lyrical prowess that is second-to-none” – Come Here Floyd
“These tracks are stellar, unlike anything else in the genre…. we’re addicted and can’t wait for our next fix“ – The LA Music Critic
“Unlike much we’ve heard before, a creation that is living on the edge in all the best ways.” – The Tripwire
With 2 self-released EP’s under her belt, Scottish alt-folk solo artist Luna Neptune has wowed critics and audiences alike. Deftly fusing folk with melodic psych-rock and spacey alt-pop soundscapes, Luna Neptune’s innovating folk for the 21st century.
With other worldly vocals, bold lyricism and bittersweet guitar lines, Luna’s drawn comparison to Zola Jesus, Bon Iver, Father John Misty and Jesca Hoop; leading to a European tour, headline slots across London, and festival appearances at Fairport’s Croperdy Convention and the main stage of Solarsphere Festival.
5th Moon EP (2017), announced Luna’s signature space pop folk rock sound to the world and gained blog support and artist of the week slots on Skowt, District De Capo and Dear Damsels. Sophmore EP Next Automated Wave (2018) received rave reviews from international tastemaker blogs including Fresh On The Net, Come Here Floyd and Muzikalia. Both records were fully written, performed and produced by Luna Neptune, with Alex Fernades mixing tracks Elspeth & Elijah and The Illustrious Pen Thief, which was named one of Valley FM’s (Aus) songs of the week.
Thematically, Neptune’s music examines themes of propaganda, feminism, misogyny, politics, and human relationships. Every song released has received international radio play including Amazing Radio, the legendary Folkal Point show, New York’s Radio Soho, Blues and Roots Radio (Canada) with live sessions on Hoxton Radio, Roundhouse Radio and a Vochlea Session at Abbey Road Studios.
Gaining a reputation as a meticulous, vividly creative producer; and an engaging and enticing live performer – Luna Neptune is one to watch. Having recently recorded with Tom McFall (Biffy Clyro, Bloc Party, Pete Doherty), a new EP is on the way in early 2019.
“A really distinctive voice. Really interesting songs, really bold stuff that deserves a wider ear.” – Colin Larkin, Author ‘The Encyclopedia of Popular Music”
“One of Valley FM’s favourite bands! Glittering folk rock with a spirited chorus.” – Valley FM (Aus)
‘Electronics and found sounds, an ethereal distant vocal and psychedelically strummed contemplative acoustic guitars…the lead vocal is plaintive and warblesome and not a little bluesy, a little Grace Slick – could certainly make Jefferson Airplane comparisons…a fair bit of lovd up and love lorn desert psych going down here. “– The Dublin Castle
“The purest form of music you’ll ever see, Luna’s stage presence is supported by her incredible voice.”– Roadtrip & The Workshop
“Beautiful space folk songs” – Dear Damsels
