Following on from their highly-praised 2022 sophomore LP 'A Modern Life', Lo Moon have now returned to announce the details behind their next studio album, arriving in the coming months.
The new full-length 'I Wish You Way More Than Luck' is being previewed by the new lead singles 'Water' and 'Connecticut', the former of which comes accompanied by a stunning Saoli Nash-directed music video, and is set to be released on the 5th April via Thirty Tigers / The Orchard.
Speaking about 'Water', the band's Matt Lowell said, “Since all the songs on our new album were inspired by the moment I found my artistic voice as a teenager, I started Water with the riff on an acoustic guitar. It really reminded me of something I might play when I was sixteen. It felt whimsical and nostalgic and when the band jumped in it felt like refreshing new ground for us. A couple days before the song appeared I had re-read David Foster Wallace’s transcript of a commencement speech he gave at Kenyon College in 2005. It had a much more profound effect on me from the first time I read it, and I thought the last line of the speech I Wish You Way More Than Luck could work perfectly within the musical framework. In some ways the song felt like it came to us, it’s hard to explain when those things happen, but we’re happy it did.”
