iluvlive, Music Week & MusicConnex presents RADAR 29.6.17
The Age of L.U.N.A
West-London group The Age of L.U.N.A launch into 2017 with the unveiling of striking video to new single Body & Soul.
Setting media alight with their quest to forge musicality and consciousness back into mainstream rap, The Age of L.U.N.A have received support and praise from the likes of The Guardian, NOTION, DAZED, HUCK and Noisey.
Following a 2016 that saw L.U.N.A hone their captivating live set; performing an exclusive set for BBC 2 at Glastonbury Festival, supporting Anderson Paak at Obonjan and touring with Kiko Bun across the UK, L.U.N.A. launch into 2017 with a string of festival announcements.
Some voices sweep away everything in their path, sending shivers up the spine, chilling the blood and inflaming the senses. Adam Naas may only be 24, but his soul-man voice is one such phenomenon. That fact did not escape the band AaRON, who invited him to guest at their concerts.
Adam Naas bares his soul simply, discreetly and fearlessly. Each line of his lyrics delves deeply into the most anguished and intense of feelings, and he has a tremendous capacity for honesty. Writing his music himself, he transmutes his personal experiences into universal emotions (love, fear, disquiet, hope…). So with just a few nostalgic and compelling, melancholic and radiant songs, he has defined his art: a personal, intimate, startlingly sincere soul-pop.
From the very first notes, the majestic bird takes wing… Adam Naas soars, borne up by the winds of soul, folk, pop and indie rock.
Today, the curious young man (he graduated from high school in sciences and studied economics to “understand the world better”) freely embraces his lucid romanticism. The shy boy has become a superb crooner, projecting a charm and appeal of which only he seems unaware.
His first EP will be released this fall on Virgin/Mercury.

A regional champion disco-dancer, a reclaimed boat dweller, an abstract painter and a proclaimed pesto addict form a band. It’s the story of Suffolk’s SuperGlu, aka bassist Krista Lynch, drummer Ben Ward and brother guitarists Ben and Alex Brown. Since forming in Manningtree, Britain’s smallest town just two years ago, the punk- pop group have built a reputation as one of the UK’s best emerging live acts with a gift for hooks and harmonies.
Unsigned, their self-released music has achieved over 150k streams and their Spotify profile attracts more than 20k monthly listeners (peaking at 46k on single release). Consistently supported by Radio1’s Huw Stephens, the DJ and presenter helped confirm the band as headliners of the BBC Introducing stages at 2016’s Reading & Leeds Festivals. Subsequently, their performance and interview from Reading went out on his Radio 1 show and the live version of single ‘Dreams’ was BBC Music’s Thursday Tip on YouTube in November 2016.
