Los Angeles, CA’s Lo Moon – comprised of Matt Lowell, Crisanta Baker, Sam Stewart, and Sterling Laws – have released a third taste of their forthcoming, highly anticipated sophomore album, A Modern Life, set for release on February 25th via Strngr Recordings/Thirty Tigers. Entitled “Stop,” the new song – which could easily fit in amongst Coldplay’s most beloved early tracks – is a bona fide anthem, the kind only Lo Moon could create. The song deftly marries soaring guitars and frontman Matt Lowell’s incredible, visceral vocals into one impressive whole. “Stop” follows the amazing album tracks “Raincoats” and “Dream Never Dies.”
A Modern Life is the band’s way of navigating through struggles with identity and expectation – but at its core, remains filled with hope and a desire to stay true to oneself. Produced by the band, the album features additional co-production by Yves Rothman (Yves Tumor, Miya Folick), as well as Chris Walla, who helmed their 2017 self-titled debut.
Siphoning guitar transmissions and a dynamic vocal push-and-pull through a lens of cinematic production, Lo Moon deftly balances expansive soundscapes and eloquent songcraft, using music to make sense of each day on A Modern Life. “It’s about survival,” observes Lowell. “Navigating through all that’s thrown at us. Maintaining who we are and where we want to be. Music itself has been so powerful for us in our own survival, it can change everything in an instant. As a band, we’ve got a lot of reverence for it and strive for it. We don’t take it for granted.”
