Lunarette - Clair de Lunarette (Tape)
What seemed like the end for the band Gingerlys in 2018 was the fresh start for Lunarette. Members Kevin Doxsey, Brian Alvarez, Colin O’Neill, and Jackie Mendoza chose to start anew and return to the studio with Connor Hanwick (prod. Gingerlys LP) to record their shimmering debut EP Clair de Lunarette. Striving for release, both personal and communal, Lunarette lean into the pop sensuality of their polished, electronic world. Lush, swirling guitar layered over dynamic, jingling synth melodies fill the atmosphere of their debut EP, out via Babe City and Topshelf Records on March 26, 2021. The EP's second single is the pulsing number "Lucky One," a windows down indie pop cruiser. Led by singer and keyboardist Jackie Mendoza's hazy, longing vocals, "Lucky One" features a driving synth bassline that simultaneously pulls listeners forward, while tugging on the heartstrings of retro pop nostalgia.
