Sound City 2018: LUNABLIND

By Kath Hartley


Meet indie three-piece LUNABLIND, one of five LCoM acts performing at this year's Liverpool Sound City festival as part of the Leeds College of Music Showcase!

LUNABLIND are Music Production third-year Sam Garbett, and third-year Jazz students Luke D'Aulerio and Harry Beech.

LUNABLIND will be live from the Red Brick Vintage Stage on Saturday 5 May from 16:45



"They are remarkably consistent with quality. It's extremely well-made indie rock anthems that they do - just waiting to be discovered." - Alan Raw from BBC Introducing West Yorkshire

"This is Indie Indie with jangly guitars a plenty and great vocals. What more could this Indie boy (geriatric) ask for? Oh ok could I have a track that broodily builds into a glorious anthemic ending? Boom. Thanks guys." - Rob Ball, Fresh on the Net & BBC 6 Music

"... Masters of the eclectic indie anthem... I've been seriously impressed; one thing's for sure, they certainly know how to pull of an incredibly refined performance." - Faith Gledhill, Fiction Is Not Imagination

How does it feel to be chosen for Sound City?

Incredible! We know the standards of other bands at LCoM so for us to be chosen, it really does feel incredible.

How do you think Sound City will differ from other shows that you have done?

It’s our first festival out of Leeds, so we’re looking forward to reaching a new crowd that’s more than likely never heard our stuff before.

How would you describe your sound, and what can we expect from your live show at Sound City?

We like to brand it as indie pop, but it’s got influences from everywhere. We pride ourselves on our tight performances, with big bombastic melodies and hard-hitting bass riffs and drums.

Any other bands you’re keen to see, and why?

We’re sticking around to hear all of the LCoM bands, for sure, and we’re looking to catch DMA’s and Slow Reader’s Club!

What are you looking forward to most about your performance?

We just love getting our sound in front of new people! It’s a new city for us and we’re excited to be getting heard.

What do you think an opportunity such as Sound City will mean for your band?

Fingers crossed somebody will hear us and invite us back to Liverpool
