L.U.N.A.R. - "In the Forest" (audio) (premiere)

Indie pop meets tropicalia on this sunny new track.

Comprised of bassist/singer Anna Disley-Simpson and programmer/singer Jamie Minns. English band L.U.N.A.R. combine indie pop and tropicalia, and as you can hear on their new single "In the Forest" the mix makes for a brighter, more vibrant sound than the current wave of contemporary synthpop.

"'In the Forest' was something we had wanted to do for a while, they explain. "We had this hook knocking about for a few months and started to sink into the melody and finally a tropical beat. The song feels like a crazy nod to nature and our apparent love of warmer climates. We were aiming for a sound that could lean towards a more nostalgic time but still felt of current, fun, worldly and not too serious - something that would place influence on the rest of our up and coming EP."

"In the Forest" is available at iTunes.
