The xx meets Bryan Adams — that’s what the new track from Los Angeles-based synth-rock band Lo Moon sounds like to me.
The song is called “This Is It” and is the latest song to emerge from the mysterious band that seemingly popped out of nowhere with the song “Loveless” last year. I make the Bryan Adams comparison because singer Matt Lowell’s voice is a bit reminiscent of it to me. But behind Lowell’s voice is a sound brooding and mystic similar to The xx and even select songs from The Naked & Famous.
“This Is It” premiered on Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 and is now available on streaming services.
Lo Moon will play Governors Ball this weekend and also has a date in Los Angeles in support of Air on June 25 at the Greek Theatre. Tickets to the Greek show are priced at $45.00 and are still available.
