L.A. 4-piece Lo Moon has announced the release of their third studio album, I Wish You Way More Than Luck, to be released April 5th via Thirty Tigers/The Orchard. To coincide with the announcement, the band has revealed two new tracks, including focus single, “Water” and a b-side “Connecticut.” Both tracks were written by Matt Lowell and produced by Mike Davis (Ratboys, Pool Kids, Great Grandpa), with Alan Moulder (Depeche Mode, U2, Ride, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, The Smashing Pumpkins) mixing the record.
Speaking about “Water,” Lo Moon’s Matt Lowell reveals, “Since all the songs on our new album were inspired by the moment I found my artistic voice as a teenager, I started Water with the riff on an acoustic guitar. It really reminded me of something I might play when I was sixteen. It felt whimsical and nostalgic and when the band jumped in it felt like refreshing new ground for us. A couple days before the song appeared I had re-read David Foster Wallace’s transcript of a commencement speech he gave at Kenyon College in 2005. It had a much more profound effect on me from the first time I read it, and I thought the last line of the speech I Wish You Way More Than Luck could work perfectly within the musical framework. In some ways the song felt like it came to us, it’s hard to explain when those things happen, but we’re happy it did.”
