"Her hands, they form a halo The future sweet and certain"

We all cringe at what ambition sounds like when it fails. But what about when it succeeds? It sounds like Evan Freeman’s startling, out-of-nowhere debut, Luna. This Calgary native has never been afraid to dream big. Luna, two years in the making, is a sonic testament to going hard or going home. It’s staggeringly lush, juicy and complex, and outrageously ambitious. Freeman is fascinated by art as transformative power –the luna moth’s journey from lowly worm to otherworldly night-visitor as a metaphor for the struggle to become fully human. While his grand compositions play within the layered, ambient soundscapes of shoegaze and dream-pop, this world-travelling prairie boy muscles it up with upbeat, powerful rock tones and strong lyrics. The combination is otherworldly enough to be magical, and catchy and grounded enough to be 100% accessible. LS/FF
