"Review: Lunar City"

"Lunar City exhales the stark, marching, paranoid strains of the almighty garage haze. Their lyrics ooze self-consciousness and persecution, confusion and panic, all told from a womb of detached happiness.
Each note is highly pronounced, the lyrics are often a frantic babble (in the best way possible) and the whole thing seems well-put together, if maybe lacking a coat of polish. (as if anyone really cares about that sort of thing nowadays anyway)

-Anon 4-10-10 - Tulsa Musician's Network


"July 2011 radio interview"

"They're [Lunar City] probably one of the most unique and weird bands in Tulsa."

-Drew McKenna, Edge Homegroan 7-3-11 - Z104.5 The Edge Tulsa radio station


"New Music Showcase May 8th!"

"Headlining the show, these dark, indie rockers have been on the scene for a little more than a year. After the loss of their drummer last fall, they are completely recovered and better than ever. The haunting vocals of Luke Melton have always reminded me of Jack Skellington, a swelling baritone. Complimenting his haunting tones is Leah Long, a lovely, feminine counterpart. The two together evoke decidedly dark and Gothic images. Backed with drums, guitars, and keyboards this band is a fun departure from your regular indie-dream-pop-boy-girl vocal lineup."

-Colleen McCarty 4-16-10 - The Tulsa Project


"Local Bands to Watch of 2009"

"I can't quite put my finger on what's so haunting and captivating about this band."

-Colleen McCarty - The Collective's Blog

Bio

Though Lunar City has undergone member reconfigurations, name changes and other various adaptations, complications, proliferations, and incantations over the last six years or so, the current lineup was formed in late 2009. With the manic vocals and meticulously structured guitar lines of founding member Luke Melton, the beautifully transcendent and often times ominous keyboard and striking vocals of Leah Long, the constantly rolling and climbing bass guitar of Adrianna Faulkenberry, and the fluttering heartbeat rhythms of most recent member and drummer Mark Weintz; Lunar City is at their greatest and most content period to date. They play frequent local shows in their home town of Tulsa, OK to which response is always warm, positive, enthusiastic, and at times quite insane and unexpected.
As things have finally stabilized for the band, they have recently completed their debut, self-titled album. It is projected to reach number seven on the international billboard charts by late 2011 (projections are based on polls taken in imaginary situations).
Though thoroughly eccentric and seemingly somewhat detached, the members of Lunar City are actually very friendly and appreciative to anyone who shows them support. So don’t worry if you catch one of them staring blankly into the sun. Feel free to say hello without fear of a rabid, foam-mouthed attack.
