The Age of L.U.N.A
(Living Under No Authority)
Mixtape Out July 28th
“As a quartet, their expressed goal is to deploy conscious lyrics and live instrumentation to connect with the listener on a deeper level, and on “Boom” the tether is very strong indeed.” – Okayplayer
“Think about soulful music – songs by Erykah Badu, Tribe Called Quest, Fela Kuti; tracks that’ve been infused with unrelenting energy for life. Combine those earthly influences with a British accent and you’ve got The Age Of L.U.N.A…” – Noisey
Fresh faced four piece THE AGE OF L.U.N.A are the voice of the next generation and Live. Under. No. Authority their motto. It’s also the title of their debut mixtape that the band are readying to drop on July 28th.
They dropped first single, “Memory Lane” to critical acclaim and garnered huge support from DJ SEMTEX [BBC RADIO 1 / 1 XTRA] who gave the group ones to watch for 2015 off the back. Noisey just premiered the video for “Memory Lane,” which they stated, “The Age of L.U.N.A have a mission statement: to force musicality and conciousness back into mainstream rap music. Five seconds into the young Londoners’ latest track “Memory Lane,” it’s clear that the manifesto is working to full effect.”
The Age Of L.U.N.A are one of the few British rap groups who, despite being an average age of 18, are standing above hashtag themed rap to create something more wholesome than a forgettable hook. Now, they share their second single, “BOOM”, which premiered with Okayplayer. The track highlights the group’s sound and approach, which is largely built on their eclectic infusion of collective influences.
The movement and mixtape to follow, titled Live Under No Authority, will be the first step on the groups still very early path. The Live Under No Authority mixtape will be available to download from http://www.liveundernoauthority.com for free and also in limited cassette format.
