Ava Luna’s “Moon 2” Imagines Life On A Utopic Satellite

by BUST Magazine

Moon 2
(Western Vinyl)

Ava Luna’s fourth LP imagines what life could be like if Earth had a utopic second moon, exploring the pseudo satellite through its signature, genre-bending style. “Childish” and “Leaf” capture the expansive nature of outer space, building mysteriously echoing vocals over playful, semi-tropical beats; the ’80s-inspired chanting choruses on “Deli Run” and “Set it Off” will invade Earthlings’ eardrums for days. While a few tracks float too far out into the galaxy, overall, the quintet blends glimmers of soul, R&B, and post-punk to provide a promising soundtrack for life on Moon 2. (4/5)
