Things have been an uphill rise with Age Of L.U.N.A these past couple of weeks.
Actually that’s a lie, since the release of Indigo back in 2014, they have been non stop, from radio interviews with the likes of BBC Radio 1Xtra, Reprezent FM and Mi Soul Radio, to touring schools around the UK.
The madness hasn’t quite stopped there with the 4-piece-collective performing at Brixton Pop Box, Notting Hill Arts Club, The Pit London and Street Fest, just to name a few.
“Our main focus is to work harder and aim for more live shows and to develop our songwriting and production abilities for the future.”
Now with the release of Six Feet Deep and their debut mixtape entitled Live Under No Authority – which is also an acronym for L.U.N.A (we see what you did there) they aren’t looking to stop or slow down any time soon; from supporting Royce Da 5’9” and DJ Premier on their Prhyme tour to getting an endorsement deal with Adidas.
The group consists of 16 year old NK-OK, singer Daniella Edwards and rappers Butch Arkas and Kyote Noir who are 21. Their 12-track mixtape is made up of smooth beats and deep lyrics, these guys have revealed their heart and soul, and got intensely personal on this project. Tracks such as Thelema, Better Than, and Aesthetic take us deeper into the lives of Age Of L.U.N.A.
There is no filler on Live Under No Authority, it is testament to their diversity; the beautiful solo vocals from Daniella on The Harvest couldn’t have come at a better time of the year, to the jazzy instrumental from BlueLabBeats and Nick Wills entitled Blue.
They wild out on Boom, a track full of energy that continues to take us on their emotional rollercoaster. Memory Lane is a very intimate and honest track where Kyote Noir talks about the absence of his father and spending some time in a mental institute. Butch brings you deeper into his life on Habits where he talks about his mum’s gambling addiction and the rows between his parents.
Age Of Luna are an important group for the UK scene, the diversity of the collective reflects the depth of the UK experience. We have Grime, we have UK Rap, we have Age of Luna.
