Part I 10:21
Morning cracks open and light spills out Whether red sky or gray Or gold-gilded white Whether we are hand in hand, or otherwise When it hits us the first time It is that same light that beckoned us Out of that salty liquid dark All that time ago Before memory Towards which we flew and fell To which we prayed Before we built our own small moons In the quietest place it is still humming In the quietest place it is like the pull of the tides We breath in sunlight And exhale miracles That which will outlast me As it touches my face so may it touch yours If I send all of my love there If my heart, too, cracks open Will you feel it Always Always

Part II 06:09
You merciless banquet Could you have been laid out with such indifference To offer knowledge, strength, and inspiration While we sit starving Hiding food under napkins Sullen children at a feast Can we be forgiven For straying so far from What was intended For taking this light And feeding it to the family dog How stubborn are we To go to bed hungry

Part III 07:13
There was a yard with two tall trees Whose limbs entwined over a tire swing And simpler times with simpler schemes Before we were such complex things Before the doubt that freedom brings Before divisions. Before we sent the brigades. When branches held us in their shade. Long since cut down their roots now decay in earthen mounds On either side of storied ground Though we may mourn what has been killed The branches bend and hold us still

Part IV 21:34
Bless the coat there by the doorway Bless the stitches Bless the thread that's served us Held us to each other Bless the needle and bless the hole Bless this body and all its mending May it be lifted like water May it be scattered like rain Take the fruits that bend down these branches Their ripeness is ready May they nourish another Bless this needle May it be lifted Bless the canopy of leaves yet to fall And the walkway they land on Wet with love and longing Bless our hearts left over from the flood Bless the stitches And bless the thread that's served us Holds us Holds us to each other Bless the smell of the soft earth Bless the smell of the soft earth that is our home May we be lifted like water May we be scattered

about

Luna Honey Washington, D.C.

Luna Honey combines murky bass grooves, unhinged distortion, and haunted vocals for a sound that builds from darkly hypnotic to feverishly unmoored.

Their songs examine what it means to grow older, to let go of guilt, to embrace fear, and to find the balance between safety and a meaningful existence.
