Moongirl is the debut EP from Lunar Femmes, an electronic duo who not only love their synthesisers but also love coming up with awesome titles for their band and their music. Seriously. There’s one thing I love about music and that’s when every element of a particular release just sounds so good, and this sounds so good.

The duo immediately show off their fancy for all things sparkly and celestial as the fittingly-titled ‘Launch’ kicks off the EP with a wondrous performance. Synthesisers wash the airwaves with a canvas of atmosphere, floating endlessly between flits and glitches of electronic sounds akin to a space station out in the eternal world of space. It’s rich, it’s lush, it’s gorgeous. (Note: make sure to one day get described as that)

Once the world has been constructed, Lunar Femmes head into a more accessible avenue with the title track. It’s effortlessly catchy beat sounds straight from the 80s and immediately turns Moongirl from a spacious wonder into a being filled with groove and vibrancy. It’s glorious.

Lunar Femmes have proper knocked me for six with this EP. Moongirl is a wonderful collection of sounds that absolutely transcends any usual listening experience into one full of twists and turns. I love the mix of ambient sounds with immediate, accessible grooves and once again, it just sounds so good.
