LO MOON – This Is It




Lo Moon is an American indie rock band from Los Angeles that is currently signed to Columbia Records.

The band released its first single, “Loveless”, in September 2016. Its self-titled debut studio album was released on February 23, 2018.

Prior to the band’s formation, its eventual lead singer, Matt Lowell, began writing songs in New York City with the intention of forming a band.

He later moved to Los Angeles where he met bassist and keyboardist, Crisanta Baker.

He played her a demo for the song, “Loveless”, and, soon after, she became the second member of the band.

Guitarist, Samuel Stewart (son of the famous musician Dave Stewart, of Eurythmics fame), joined shortly after.

The band soon began practicing in Lowell’s backyard shed.

The “Loveless” demo, which Lowell had begun writing in 2012, attracted the attention of Columbia Records and spurred the label to sign Lo Moon.

Sterling Laws later joined as their touring drummer.

In September 2016, the band released “Loveless” as its first single …

… which was produced by former Death Cab for Cutie guitarist and producer, Chris Walla and François Tétaz.

After the song’s official release, the band played a smattering of live shows before going on tour in early 2017.

In May 2017, the band released a second single, “This Is It”.

In June, it performed at the Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City, and two months later at Lollapalooza in Chicago.

They also opened for Glass Animals in August 2017.

In September 2017, Lo Moon was one of three acts added to NPR‘s inaugural Slingshot emerging artist series.

They also opened for Ride.

The following month, they opened for Phoenix on five dates in North America and toured with London Grammar in the United Kingdom and Europe.

That month, they also released a new single, “Thorns”.

The band began headlining shows in November 2017, including sold-out stops at the Troubadour in Los Angeles and at Rough Trade NYC.

In January 2018, the band announced details of its self-titled debut album.

The album was released on February 23, 2018 through Columbia Records, and produced by Chris Walla and François Tétaz.

The song “This Is It” peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Adult Alternative Songs chart that month, …

… and the band performed it (along with “Loveless”) on Jimmy Kimmel Live on January 16.

THIS IS IT

Lyrics

Parallel love
Innocently vacant
On the edge of breaking
Shouldn’t keep me waiting
Yesterday’s drugs
should never be taken
I fell into rotation
Surrender mistaken

This is it
This is it, love
This is it
This is it
This is it, love
This is it

I kill the hollow coward
Holding on impatient
Nothing left is sacred
There’s no way to save it

This is it
This is it, love
This is it
This is it
This is it, love
This is it
This is it
This is it, love
This is it

Let me out
Out of my cage
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine
Let me out
Out of my cage
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine
Let me out
Out of my cage
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine
Let me out
Out of my cage
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine
Let me out
Out of my cage
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine
Let me out
Out of my cage
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine

This is it
This it it, love
This is it
Let me out
Out of my cage
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine
This is it
This is it, love
This is it
Let me out
Out of my cage
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine
This is it
This is it, love
This is it
Let me out
Out of my brain
Out in the sunshine
