Music Submission, Lunar Reverb

Artist or Band Name: 
Lunar Reverb

Lunar Reverb released an EP called Younger Days. All of the tracks are radio ready and include metadata. We are looking to get some airplay, features, gigs, or reviews wherever possible. Below I have included my band information, links to our social media, press, and links to our music below. I hope you dig it. Either way thanks for the time and consideration! Band Name: Lunar Reverb About Band: Lunar Reverb is a group of music loving people trying to create a modern fusion of classic rock, punk, blues, pop and groove. They are an indie alternative rock band from Arlington, TX looking to spread music and good vibes. The band includes Lizzy Casarez the lead singer, Joshua Hanson on guitar/vocals/aux instruments, Zack Bryant on bass, and Bryson Allsup on drums. Lunar Reverb draws inspiration from Led Zeppelin, Sublime, Jack White, The Black Keys, female musicians from the classic rock era-today, and blues to create a more modern raw classic rock sound for their debut Younger Days EP. They have hit the scene running with shows throughout the DFW area including The Old Cocktail Lounge, Dr Jeckyll's Beer Lab, Reno's Chop Shop, and The Ridglea. Lunar Reverb has been featured in podcasts, Voyage Dallas Hidden Gems, and Divide And Conquer Music. Younger Days Description: We went for a more raw rock sound for our EP. Our sound pulls from artists such as Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, and Texas blues. The vibe of the album pulls from the struggles everyone goes through when they feel alone in their 20 something Younger Days. Einstein was written after Josh was going through the motions from job to job with the goal of playing music and feeling stuck in his ways. Purple Pistol of Love was originally a song Josh's dad wrote in his band. Josh rewrote the piece lyrically to coincide with his story of love. What Can You Do and 2020 both touch on the anxiety of a young adult in today's world. 2020 was a live jam Lizzy wrote lyrics to on the spot from a riff Josh was playing around with. We hope to get another studio recording of this track. Cautionary Tale was also lyrically written by Lizzy and Josh from a riff he was playing around with. Lizzy had a friend who was going through a sort of abusive relationship and pulled from that energy. Zack wrote Take Your Time all on his own. I feel like musically it compliments the meaning of What Can You Do. When the rain comes you need to weather it. In time the sun will shine again.
