Debut Album Music & Sports Out 3/10 via Refune Records
“Close Dance” could easily be the love child of Björk and Aphex Twin with its
cloying vocals and hypnotic, slightly distorted melodies.” – VIBE
“…atmospheric sound and wonderfully unique vocals.” – Pigeons & Planes
Sweden’s electrifying singer Lune (née Linnèa Martinsson) is gearing up to release her debut album Music & Sports on March 10th through Sebastian Ingrosso’s Refune Records, and now she’s released “Close Dance” (soundcloud), the second track from the album with VIBE. In addition, Lune’s haunting reinterpretation of Swedish House Mafia’s hit song “Leave The World Behind” (video) appears as the title track to their upcoming documentary of the same name, which premieres at SXSW 2014.
Stream “Close Dance”
The core of Lune’s music is rooted in the dance and performance world she started in at an early age, writing simple songs with two chords, and simple, direct lyrics. Her sound ripened when creating music with Adrian Lux and Carl-Michael Herlöfsson, which resulted in movie-like pop melodies and lyrics about art, fighting, sport, love and sex.
Music & Sports is Lune’s debut album, recorded during a few intense autumn months in a vicarage on the Swedish isle of Gotland. It was mixed by Carl-Michael Herlöfsson, and mastered by the legendary Mike Marsh, who has worked with everyone from Massive Attack to Depeche Mode. Lune has also collaborated with musicians and producers Alexis Weak and Adrian Lux, for which she delivered vocals on “Teenage Crime” and co-wrote the single “Fire.”
