Lunar Vacation Sign to Keeled Scales, Unveil Video for New Single ‘Shrug’

    Lunar Vacation have signed to Austin-based label Keeled Scales (Secretly Distribution) with plans to release their debut LP later this year. The Atlanta-based rock band have also shared a new single, ‘Shrug’, alongside an accompanying video filmed by Violet Teegardin and featuring animation by John Andrews. Watch it below.

    “I look back now and realize that this song was a pivotal moment in delving into self-identity and ultimately identifying as a non-binary person,” songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist Grace Repasky said in a statement about the song, which was produced by Daniel Gleason of Grouplove. “The more I tried to fit into a box, the more I felt out of place. Reconstructing thinking patterns and unlearning a binary outlook is a lifelong journey, and I think ‘Shrug’ is a documented beginning for me.”

    Repasky co-founded Lunar Vacation with fellow songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist Maggie Geeslin when they were barely old enough to drive. The duo later expanded into a four-piece with the addition of Matteo DeLurgio on synths and Connor Dowd on drums. Their debut full-length will follow a pair of EPs, 2017’s Swell and 2018’s Artificial Flavors.
