Artist: LA LUNA
Songs: Broken Heart Emoji + Always Already
Recorded at The Gladstone Hotel's Melody Bar (Long Winter 5.2), January 6, 2017.
This quartet's genre tags on their bandcamp includes the string "emo emotional emotive emoviolence", which manages to convey a certain aesthetic sensibility. Live, they gave the impression of loudfastpunks who were learning to slow down, with grinding instrumental passages punctuated by counterpoint co-screaming from guitarist Nicolas Field and bassist Alex Kurth before vocalist Vanessa Gloux would return to the fray to push the song forward.
[You can also see some video over on Brandon Caswell Douglas' playlist from the night.]
[Long Winter continues this Saturday (February 4th) with the action moving to The Theatre Centre, featuring music by Devon Welsh, Off World, Saidah Conrad, Germaphobes, L CON, Ivy Mairi, FIN, Young Clancy, Roberto and Vibrant Matter.]
