Video Of The Week #151: Lunar Bird – A Walk

Lunar Bird released their wonderous new single ‘A Walk’ last week and today we debut the accompanying video.

A Walk‘ is something we might all be taking more of as we attempt to cope with Coronavirus lockdown, without going stir crazy. A woozy catherine wheel of synth motifs and a glacial wash of percussion, that is redolent of early Goldfrapp or Jane Weaver, is draped with the ethereal vocals of Roberta Musillami, and are both evocative and life affirming. She says it is a “celebration of those hard moments: they constitute a valuable opportunity to flourish.”

The song was recorded, mixed and mastered at Sudestudio, Italy by Stefano Manca (who recently worked with artists such as Beirut, Laetitia Sadier and Michael Andrews).

They say:

“The song is a celebration of the inner strength we possess, when going through difficult times in particular. In fact, it’s a celebration of those hard moments: they constitute a valuable opportunity to flourish. So why is it that we are so afraid of showing our pain? And why do we feel ashamed when we cry? A walk aims to valorise human frailty. To unite in our emotional vulnerabilities. After all, it is only when we accept our struggles, that we may truly progress.”

Forming in 2017, the Italian/Welsh band released their debut EP ‘Daydreamer‘ in 2018 it was played on several radio programmes, notably on the Adam Walton show on BBC Music Introducing. Recent single “Siren Scales”, released on Diamond Club (Brilliance), gained airplay from several radio stations such as BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru and Amazing Radio.

The new singles releases will be preceding the debut album release in Spring 2020
