Wednesday: Luna Aura
Crash-landing from outer space, genre-bending pop powerhouse Luna Aura is hell bent on paving her own path to stardom. The singer-songwriter, producer and triple threat delivers with Top 40 tracks that are brimming with messages of youth, feminism, individuality and far from ordinary. Just how she likes it.
Luna, who began penning songs and performing at age 14, has already shared stages with The Killers, K.Flay, Chance the Rapper, P!nk, Odesza, Major Lazer, Steve Aoki, Kid Cudi, Run the Jewels, Muse, and more of music’s biggest names. She has spent time on the festival market, playing KAABOO, Lost Lake, Global Dance Festival, So What Music Fest, EMERGE and many others. Named a Taco Bell “Feed the Beat” artist and BMI Indie Spotlight all in 2016, Luna began breaking pops mold, earning fans in Galore, GQ, NYLON, Idolator, Ladygunn, Teen Vogue, The 405, Teen, MTV, VH1, Ones To Watch and more.
As of late, the LA-via-Phoenix starlet joined forces with Wolves Music for her newest single “Sucker Punch.” Drawing on childhood influences like Blondie and Gwen Stefani, her latest work feels fresh and dynamic, both personally and in a broader scope.
With songs like “Sucker Punch, which she says is “very emotional and somewhere I’ve never been before as an artist,” every one of Luna Aura’s cards is on the table. She’s aware that there’s still growing to do but she’s radically self-aware now, making note of the cracks in her character and filling them with gold. There’s no hiding behind a curtain; if anything, she hopes that her newest work will resonate with those listeners going through the same trials.
“I’m showing more of who I am as a person through my music,” she says. “I’m not the perfect pop princess example that people expect me to be, I’m vulnerable, I’m human, and I’m being more honest than I’ve ever been.”
With a year, ahead packed full of new releases, features, festivals and touring, Luna has an extremely busy and promising 2018. Catch Luna Aura at Tempe Marketplace this Thursday at our Free Show w/ Sir Sly and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Preview her song “Sucker Punch” below, if you like what you hear, vote for it as the song of the week at the bottom of the page.
