Lunar Vacation have announced their debut album Inside Every Fig Is A Dead Wasp, will drop on October 29, 2021 via Keeled Scales (Secretly Distribution). Today, the band, have the shared album track “Mold” in the form of an official music video directed by Rach Rios Rehm; it’s a memorable and psychedelic display, bright and bemusing like Lunar Vacation’s own sonic universe.
Vocalist/guitarist, Grace Repasky says the song is about “…navigating the oddities and strange tides of West Coast culture, specifically L.A., and influencer lifestyle for the first time. We played a festival out there and it felt like I was in an immersive Instagram advertisement. It kind of freaked me out. To make it all more confusing, the song also deals with having feelings for someone wrapped up in that culture and the conflicting feelings of wanting to fit in.”
Produced by Daniel Gleason of Grouplove, Lunar Vacation’s upcoming full-length, draws from early influences like Rilo Kiley and Tame Impala, and landing a little closer to contemporary favorites like Alvvays and Slow Pulp.
Says Maggie Geeslin (songwriter / vocalist / guitarist) of making the video, “We looked no further than Rachael to direct this one. We’ve been friends for years and working with her on this project was a no-brainer. We told her we wanted something funky and she worked her magic, cooking up a world of absurdity. We had such a good time, in fact, that Grace tattooed the address of the studio where we filmed on their leg at the wrap party.”
Grace Repasky (songwriter / vocalist / guitarist) and Maggie Geeslin (songwriter / vocalist / guitarist) met in the eighth grade and immediately began sharing their own music. By the time they were old enough to drive, Lunar Vacation was born. The pair forged demo after demo, took to as many stages as Atlanta could offer them, and added Matteo DeLurgio (synth) and Connor Dowd (drums) to sonically match their songs’ increasingly vibrant spirit. Shortly after graduating high school, Lunar Vacation self-released two EPs — Swell and Artificial Flavors — which landed them quick critical attention, millions of organic streams, and support runs for Remo Drive, Sidney Gish, and SALES.
