The reference points for a rap-based band incorporating male and female vocalists are fairly obvious: the Fugees
loom large in the list of musical relatives, while you'd expect the L.U.N.A. crew to also look to the likes of Digable Planets
for elements of their inspiration, as well as to collaborations between rappers and female singers such as the several Mary J. Blige
enjoyed with rappers such as The Notorious B.I.G.
and Method Man
The self-titled album wasn't something they decided to start to make: rather, the group have been writing and recording more or less non-stop since they got together, though 2016 was the year everything started to come together. Their burgeoning fan base will know the likes of debut single 'Blow Me Away
', released in March; May's follow-up, the delicate yet forceful love song 'Sweetness
', which won them support from DJ Semtex; and the in-your-face rambunctiousness of 'Freddie
', which was premiered in August by MistaJam.
