Arthur Moon is the moniker of award-winning composer/singer Lora-Faye Åshuvud, who WNYC calls "an artist bent on upending your expectations of what a pop song should sound like." Åshuvud writes her lyrics using cut up newspaper and magazine articles, and describes the process of composing the experimental pop arrangements as similarly collage-like.
"On the best days," she said in an interview with LPR, "it feels like playing a rousing game of Exquisite Corpse--except only with myself." The band’s debut EP Our Head was released on Velvet Elk Records in the Spring of 2017, after their debut track/music video “Wind Up” premiered with NOWNESS the previous summer. The Arthur Moon band also includes Martin D Fowler (composer for This American Life and Limetown), Cale Hawkins (Quincy Jones, Wyclef Jean, Nikki Yanofsky), Aviva Jaye, Nick Lerman and Dave Palazola.
