About

Lunar Hand

SoCal psych garage pop trio Lunar Hand are just out of high school but boast some killer chops with distinctive 1950s vintage pop flair. The greaser theatrics which the Arctic Monkeys have been chasing on their past few releases seem to come naturally to these youngsters as they deftly maneuver through futuristic Buddy Holly-esque versus into a full-throttle, desert rock hook. The sound is huge and the cryptic lyrics are whip-smart, sung in an aching baritone that belies their age. Spearhead Junior Reed fronts the group while Derulo Boulet (Bass) and Christian Ruth (Drums) carry the backbone.
