Alternative Rock Newcomers Hello Luna to release edgy new single
Hello Luna, the rising alt rock act from Columbus, OH have released their latest offering, “Sweet and Deranged,” to drop on June 9th. The band have been undergoing a quiet metamorphosis of sorts as they assemble their next release. The is offering their first glimpse into their upcoming album, “Sweet and Deranged,” a single that lives up to its title. The song came to life under the guidance of Capital House Studios (Beartooth, Hawthorne Heights) and represents a somewhat new direction for the band, who are embracing their heavier side with more edge than ever before. Indie/alternative leaning fans will still find plenty to love here, but the band hopes to reach a new segment of fans – ones that might be into acts such as PVRIS, Spiritbox, or even Bring Me the Horizon. The subject matter of the single is heavy & personal. Vocalist Kenzie Coyne explains, “This song is about my childhood and feeling like I was the crazy one for growing up in an abusive home.” With her father’s impending release from prison following a conviction for a case that received considerable media attention, Coyne mentions that the song had been “bubbling within me for a while.” The song expresses feelings of suffocation and isolation, and the music presents this visually in a contrasting manner. Though the song and story is incredibly personal to Coyne, many will relate to the portrayal of being happy and bright on the outside, while tumultuous on the inside. The band has a big 2023 planned, with their debut appearance at one of the preeminent emerging music festivals, Audiofeed, in Urbana IL. Tour dates have also been announced with rising alt-pop artist Jady.
Hello Luna have been living up to their name since 2015, seeking to “bring light into the darkness” wherever they go. They have released three EPs and one full length record, Into Static. They have shared the stage with the likes of K. Flay, Sunflower Bean, SHAED, Hoko, and many more. Follow the band on Instagram and TikTok.
