Toronto, ON-based all-female indie-folk trio, Lunar Bloom consists of Brittany Rae Robinson, Kelly McNamee & Jocelyn Regina.
On June 4, 2022, the band unveiled their album, Running Deep, which is made up of 11 tracks including their singles, “Running Deep”, “Call Me a Woman”, and “Heroes.” The album follows their self-titled EP, which was released back in 2019, and nominated in the Folk/Roots Category for an Independent Music Award in 2020.
Upon listening to the first two songs, I knew immediately that I was in for a treat, with beautiful vocal harmonies, and poetic lyrics, and the remainder of the album followed suit and did not disappoint.
The fifth track, “I Think I Could Love You” caught my attention as a very folksy-sounding song, full of harmonies. I got easily lost in this song, the music, and the lyrics intertwine perfectly, and at times sound reminded me of a calming track that you would play to reduce anxiety and relax.
“Apology”, the tenth track evokes sincerity and vulnerability in the lyrics, along with a beautiful light beat. When you’re listening, you almost feel that they are apologizing to you. It is easy to get lost in this song. I listened to it multiple times, as I was repeatedly pulled deeply into the lyrics.
If you’re on the lookout for a light-listening, folksy album, this one may be the one you’ve been waiting for, and if you’re in Toronto tonight (June 30, 2022), you can check Lunar Bloom out live at The Tranzac Club. Find out more information, and buy advanced tickets here.
