“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)
‘Space Pop Folk Rock with additional trinkets thrown in’…sounds about rite…samples, 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
“Luna Neptune is a Skowt fave” – Skowt
“Beautiful space folk songs” – Dear Damsels
“Melodic and memorable” – Find a Song
Luna Neptune is a Scottish alt-folk solo artist, based in Hackney, drawing comparison to Beth Orton, Bon Iver, Father John Misty and Jesca Hoop.
Luna released her debut EP 5TH MOON in January 2017, and has been creating a buzz gigging at venues such as The Dublin Castle in Camden and The Good Ship in Kilburn, headlining shows at The Betsy Trotswood and The Lucky Pig. This summer Luna appeared at Fairport’s Croperdy Convention Festival and on the main stage of Solarsphere Festival. Luna features on the Hot Vox roster.
The debut EP was well received gaining blog coverage and artist of the week slots on Skowt, District De Capo and Dear Damsels. Every song released has gained international radio play including Amazing Radio, the legendary Folkal Point show, New York’s Radio Soho, Roundhouse Radio, Riviera FM, Valley FM (Aus), SHMU FM, Blues and Roots Radio (Canada), 2 Lochs FM, Crystal FM 107.4, Dunoon FM 97.4
Sophmore EP Next Automated Wave was released on 27th July 2018. Fully written, performed and produced by Luna Neptune, tracks from the EP have gained support from Amazing Radio, Loud Women, Hoxton Radio, Muzikalia, Find A Song, Merryn and Beehive Candy amongst various other international blogs and radio stations.
Ambitious and affecting, NEXT AUTOMATED WAVE deftly fuses folk with melodic psych-rock and spacey alt-pop soundscapes. With other worldly vocals, bold lyricism and bittersweet guitar lines, it was described by Loud Women as being “haunting” and The Tripwire as being “unlike much we’ve heard before, a creation that is living on the edge in all the best ways”.
‘The Illustrious Pen Thief’, the first track from Next Automated Wave EP was named one of Valley FM’s (Aus) songs of the week. “Elspeth & Elijah” had its exclusive first play on Jim Gellatly’s Amazing Radio Show.
A forthcoming video of Luna performing at Abbey Road Studios for music tech company Vochlea is scheduled for release later in 2018.
