Luna Luna Share New Single “Dance With U” Out Now
Austin based, by way of Dallas, indie synth-pop sensations Luna Luna are set to share their first single of the year with “Dance With U” out Tuesday, May 2nd. After a fulfilling last year for Austin-based dream pop band, Luna Luna is ready to head into a new chapter with their newest track “Dance With U” which takes the quartet fully into a new direction as they relocate the world of bedroom pop to the dance floor.
Elevating their sound, the single marks the first to be made outside of their homes and produced fully in studio. Their latest era is audibly driven by exploring the sounds of the Latin music they grew up with, recognizing that the common denominator of the music that raised them was the ability to spark an instinct to dance alongside emotive lyrics. This influence moved the Austin-based quartet to create an anthem for crying at the club, with this first single working as a stepping stone to warm audiences into their new sound.

Taking their signature love-lorn lyricism, the band is moving their audience from passive listeners to active dancers by creating a song around heartbreak while sonically constructing a danceable track to get the party started. Where previously they wanted people to listen to their tracks, they now want to enter an era for people to groove to it. The song itself revolves around thinking you’re over someone, but being swayed back into your feelings for them the moment you see them dance. Adding even more texture to their new direction, the single features a collaboration with Latin artist from Monterrey, Mexico, Shrt_Lyf, who adds a dynamic verse into the track.
On the single, singer Kaavi shares “We aimed to make a song that can make people move while still talking about heartbreak. We wanted to give sad boys something to dance about, a crying at the club moment, if you will.”
