Split between Cambridge and London, the enigmatic electro-indie quintet Lunacre has been recording together since late 2014. They blend a number of influences and call to mind the post-rock, melodic glitch of Alt-J and Radiohead.
The debut EP, "Troupe" included their first single, 'Engine,' well-received following a premiere at Clash Magazine:
"A new but ambitious project, the group fuse a lust for breaking electronics to a need to hone in on classic songcraft. Somewhere between those two poles, Lunacre emerge. Compared to Vondelpark and Mount Kimbie, there's also a sense of the Bristol sound in here; the intensity of those early Portishead records, for example."
Despite the band's diverse range of influences and experimental soundscapes, Lunacre achieve concise and accessible songwriting, overlaid with melody and harmonies, as evidenced by he next single, "Shit Picasso," released in January, accompanied by a video animated by the group's Ben de Vries. Lunacre are currently working on new recordings and plan to release their next EP in the summer of 2016.
