la lune is back with a brand new single ‘bathe’, released this Friday 12th accompanied with her first ever (home made!) music video.
bathe sees a more upbeat side to la lune that we haven’t seen before, and I absolutely love it. She still possesses the slow synths and echoed vocals, but her voice seems more confident and boasts her impressive vocal range even more than before in her previous songs. It’s a really great, uplifting song that’s filled with positivity and makes for a really great track for the spring and summer months – every aspect of the track combines wonderfully to create a really lovely and catchy single. la lune has shown nothing but amazing development as an artist, and I have no doubts she will continue on this upwards journey.
la lune is performing as part of The Alternative Escape this Saturday 20th May at Beyond Retro at 1:50pm.
Listen to ‘bathe’ and watch the music video here:
For those who aren’t familiar with la lune, you should be; she’s an 18 year old Brighton singer-songwriter influenced by artists such as The Japanese House and Bon Iver, and her music is a wonderful combination of calming synthesisers paired with haunting vocals. la lune chooses to conceal her identity – she believes her music should be consumed at nothing but face value, and wants to avoid any prior judgement based on her name or her appearance which is admirable for a small artist trying to break through the bedlam of other Brighton artists on the scene.
Climatise starts out slowly and subtly builts up to a beautifully put-together song filled with emotion and hope. la lune definitely wouldn’t be la lune without her hypnotising vocals and slow, subtle backing beats and it’s always a fantastic combination for the ears. She has the perfect voice and vocal range for the music she writes; her voice brings a dark but calming atmosphere to her songs and this is no exception. Climatise has some beautifully haunting backing vocals that fade in and out throughout, and every aspect of the song has been so obviously thought out and is perfectly orchestrated from the slow build up, vocals and subtle synthesisers and beats in the background. The song fades in and out at the right times, and leaves you feeling the perfect mix of serene but uplifted. It is without a doubt that la lune is an artist you should be looking out for on the Brighton scene; she has a great deal to offer.
la lune’s music is available on Spotify, Soundcloud, iTunes and Apple Music
