Lunarin are gearing up to release their full-length on January 15, and in the meantime we are streaming a teaser track from this painfully beautiful new drop.

The band’s original plan of releasing a short EP of B-sides, following their second full length album, Duae, has snowballed into a full length album. This change in the band’s plan came about after they embarked on a series of acoustic shows to promote Duae. In the midst of their preparations, the band invited Natalie Soh (violins) from Serenaide and Linda’s younger brother, Victor (cello), to play with them.

“The group not only worked on the B-sides, we also took the opportunity to re-work the earlier songs released on Duae as well as on our first album, The Chrysalis, in order to play these songs acoustically as part of our set,” bassplayer Linda Ong explains. “The groups spent long hours in my apartment, located at The Midas, rehearsing and fine tuning these songs.” The end result of those hours of hard work quickly became a labour of love. “The strings brought an added dimension to the songs that I did not envisage,” Linda continues, “It dawned on us that it would be a waste not to record down all these ideas and release them after we were done with the acoustic performances.”

The Midas Sessions will be released digitally on 15 January with only limited edition hard copies for sale. Lunarin will also be performing at The Pigeonhole that day. Click here for more details.
