Lo Moon Announce New Album, Release New Songs ‘Water’ and ‘Connecticut’

    Lo Moon has announced their third LP, I Wish You Way More Than Luck. It’s set to arrive on April 5 via Thirty Tigers/The Orchard. The follow-up to 2022’s A Modern Life Both was produced by Mike Davis, with Alan Moulder on mixing duties. Today, the psych-pop quartet has shared two tracks from it, ‘Water’ and ‘Connecticut’. Check out the Saoli Nash and Warren Fu-directed video for ‘Water’ and listen to ‘Connecticut’ below.

    “Since all the songs on our new album were inspired by the moment I found my artistic voice as a teenager, I started Water with the riff on an acoustic guitar,” the band’s Matt Lowell explained in a statement. “It really reminded me of something I might play when I was sixteen. It felt whimsical and nostalgic and when the band jumped in it felt like refreshing new ground for us. A couple days before the song appeared I had re-read David Foster Wallace’s transcript of a commencement speech he gave at Kenyon College in 2005. It had a much more profound effect on me from the first time I read it, and I thought the last line of the speech I Wish You Way More Than Luck could work perfectly within the musical framework. In some ways the song felt like it came to us, it’s hard to explain when those things happen, but we’re happy it did.”
