Luna Green – “Lotus Interception”
“An intriguingly unique shadowy pop song” – God Is In The TV
“..a song as nuanced as ‘Lotus Interception’ is the type of multidimensional music she was destined to make.” – The 405
“Dramatic and captivating, a controlled chaos thrives under Green’s fingers and their lavender touch”. – Oh-Es-Tee
“Wild and wonderfully original.” – Super World Indie Tunes
“Heady bits of fractured pop wonder” – Nooga
This is the first new music from Swedish artist Luna Green in over two years. Since debuting in 2013 with an year long cycle that spawned three studio albums, blog praise and raving reviews in Swedish newspapers, Luna’s been secretly working on another dimension of her music. Something closer to what she hears inside her head. Darker, harder, more exploring and at the same time more specific to herself.
“Lotus Interception is a video I directed together with Emiliano Altera. With Therese Korning and Alexander Pihl filming it we tried to capture the beauty of this steril, calm winter, the snow uniting the buildings in swedish abandoned mining towns with the deep forest around. It has such a soul to me. It’s based on a reflection on a dystopian world, after mass consumption and greed has left the world empty of human society.The two people in the video are made to symbolize one single person, and the friction and conflict within ones soul, like polarities in unison. As much as they are at home with themselves it shows feelings of being out of place, wanting to feel absolute connection but experiencing separation and isolation from ones self.
For me personally, this is not only a reflection on my own emotional self but also on this time and the collective thoughts that seem to be present.We seem to be more disconnected from each other in physical terms then ever before through social media and the fast pace of things. Many people appear to be a feeling that we are “seeing the last of the good days”.The worlds looks quite harsh with nature being affected by our global warming, the free market being in charge rather than values and the politics centering in around racism and fascism. I think people are scared. I’m sort of praying for practical solutions and political reasoning to make globalism and unison possible without mass consumption in the same regard. Humanity is worth saving!”
”Lotus Interception” – her first single for Birds Records and the first release out of two this spring – is a dramatic piece of music which allures in the same way as FKA Twigs, Kelela or Massive Attack. It’s written, recorded and produced by Luna herself in Stockholm this winter.
