Atlanta band Lunar Vacation have self-released just two EPs while still in college and have already sold out venues in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Austin, and New York. Today, they released their latest single “Unlucky”.
“Unlucky” was recorded with producer Dan Gleason (Grouplove) and engineer T.J. Elias who will also be working on their forthcoming full-length album.
Of the song, lead singer Grace Repasky says “Unlucky was the first song that stuck after around five months of not writing anything that I was happy with. In March of 2019, I was feeling really discouraged with music, was having trouble with some relationships and got cheated on. Looking back, I definitely wrote it in a mindset of self-pity and wallowing in sadness, but the song has changed meaning over time. The song wasn’t fully finished until October of that year, which gave me time to really think about what I wanted to say with it. But now, I feel it’s more about reflecting on things that happen in your life and how to grow from it, realizing that you aren’t the only one who goes through shit. Even though it may feel like nothing is going right for you, everything happens for a reason and it shapes you to grow.”
