Stay Lunar release new single Distance

Following on from earlier single, I Like It When You’re around, Stay Lunar present their next in a long-line of fantastic singles, Distance.

It’s been a long run to this point for Stay Lunar, but as the tracks keep coming out the sound gets tinges of a band nearing the fully formed and developed sound.

Distance has the sound they’ve carried so well through their career, the ever-so-present and versatile sonic that always feels like it could soundtrack a film, but there’s something slightly more immediate and certainly more forthright about the band’s latest offerings.

Distance is the launch pad of the band’s much promised change in direction, not that it was needed, but chief writer in the band, Harry, has always intended to push the boundaries of the project and Distance is the first real slice of Stay Lunar’s take on the Are-These-Guys-Really-English sound.

Stay Lunar

Taking cues from their British contemporaries like Far Caspian & early stage SPINN, whilst nodding to the likes of Day Wave and The Drums further afield, Stay Lunar are offering a quintessentially British take on a much loved and revered sound.

Of the track, singer Harry Leigh said: “Distance is a song about running away from your problems, and how it always catches up with you one way or another.”

Employing the services of new producer, Alex Quinn (Overpass, Royston Club), the band have managed to keep their much formed identity in place whilst delivering a fresher take on it.

Already this year Stay Lunar have worked with the brand Lucy & Yak and supported King No-One in their much-loved Thekla, all the while feeding the Blogosphere with earlier single, I Like It When You’re Around.

Things will only improve too, as the band are set to release their sophomore EP later in the year, details for which will follow.

Closing 2022 one band and starting 2023 feeling like a new one is so typical of a band as meticulous as Stay Lunar, everything is done for a reason. To celebrate the release, the band will be supporting Sunnbrella at Rough Trade, Bristol on 1st April. 2022 saw the band make some in-roads with the release of their debut EP and live shows supporting Fickle Friends, SPINN as well as a headline show to round it all off.

Their songs have also been given airings across BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio (Charlie Ashcroft & Shell Zenner) and even Robert Carlyle of 51st State, Trainspotting and The Full Monty.

With huge support coming from Spotify with adds to their Indie Pop playlist (1.5 M followers), Hot New Bands and Fresh Finds:

Rock playlist whilst Hotel Chocolate and Starbucks gave the band some love via their in-store playlists.

I like it when you’re around is the start of a big year for Stay Lunar, and it’s good to have them around.
