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.

Luna Honey’s first album, "Peace Will Grind You Down" was released 7/13/18 on BLIGHT.Records.

Track Name: Honey
These things I do for money
Don’t know what I might have done
If all the bees with all their honey
Weren’t busy smoking in their hive

Lead me to the auto-da-fé
I am eager for the burn
I found you, I found out.
I found out
I found out.

For all the bees that make that honey
Perfume their wings with burning pine
I need a window to let all the air in, air in, air in
Air fill my lungs til I’ve got something to say.

Love is a bind
And a kindness
And your hands
Burn steady.

And I’m at peace. Can’t lose your grip
With your fears
rising to the light.
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe
Track Name: Exorcism
Let me lock the door.
Tie each other to the chair
Anoint ourselves with holy oil.
Breath the heavy, incensed air
Somewhere there beneath the skin
Our new selves stirring, fresh and raw
Waiting for our flesh to fall
And a new world to begin.

My love is sharpening its teeth and nails
My love is training for the fight
My love is hungry to devour
The senseless beauty of this night.

Waiting
Waiting
Waiting

There’s no room for mermaids here
No maiden fair, no rescues made
We tie each other to the chair
Our new selves stirring, unafraid.

In this room a world is born.
An old world dies. We do not mourn
The night is long and full of sighs that groan
from heavy burdens borne
No longer.

Let me lock the door. Tie each other to the chair
Anoint ourselves with holy oil. Breath the heavy, incensed air

Waiting
Waiting
Waiting
Track Name: Weverton
We camped that night under a dead tree
Whose limbs had been lost in some other storm
We knew about wind, and falling trees
But we would not know about this.

We camped that night under a dead tree
Near the edges of a cliff and the grave
Of a dead dog once beloved now asleep beneath the dirt

Here we lie clinging to this earth
Here we lie unshaken from it
Here we lie clinging to this earth
Here we lie unshaken

We knew about wind and falling trees
But we would not know about this
Winds snuffed the daylight like a candle
And night fell suddenly

There was no rain. There was no storm as I had known them.
All was black and the wind turned wild.
Fist of earth choke the air with a fine grit
I press my face into the warmth of your neck
Cover my face with your shirt
And breath through you

Here we lie, clinging to this earth.
Here we lie, unshaken from it

We try our phones but have no bars
We must have in our slumber
Laid down upon the train tracks
I can hear the engines charging down the valley
I can hear Diana’s hounds calling out for blood
I have brought you here
and I must be punished
I could die of guilt
And I am ready to die because you are here beside me.

I lie on my back and cling to you and the earth
We are a lone point of warmth in the cold, cold night
The night is a beast racing round
The black is a void full of sounds that define fury

We are one beating heart and one baited breath
I lie on my back and cling to you and the earth.
And I wait for the punishment that surely must come
After the gods have revealed themselves?

Here we are
Here we are
Here we are here we are
Here we are here we are here we are
Unshaken. Unshaken.
Track Name: Peace Will Grind You Down
You see a struggle
Like so many others
And peace will come when you work long enough
And peace will let you down
Cause you’ve earned more than they have
And you deserve it all

Your heart is a battle
Each day that unravels
Says peace will come if you try hard enough
But peace cannot be found

I hope it’s through
I hope someday

Faith in a motive
The rewards prophets wrote of
Peace will come when you are hard enough
And peace will grind you down.

I hope it’s true
I hope and pray
Cause I don’t see the method
And madness all around

I hope it’s true
I hope and pray
Track Name: Intention
Come with me to the river
Lower yourself on the ledge
Cast away your intentions
See what they find in the dredge.

I’ve been a siren out calling
Lovers on out to their deaths
Now I hear the music that’s pulling
Life from the babies’ first breaths.

They are growing in the distance with a thousand hungry eyes
They are frantic in their playtime, they are eager for the prize
Hide and seeking in the schoolyards, playing house inside each home
The babes are flooding reckless down the spillways in a rush of blood and foam

Take yourself to the river
See what there is to be seen
I was a siren out calling
Now I’m dragged by a simple machine.

Hope for the perilous future
Hope for the stars to align
I feel the parallels shifting
Under the weight of the crime

And the tyrant in his parasitic opulence is sure
That the rustling in the bushes is a false provocateur
All the pundits nod their faces, taking solace in the truth
That the strong will always triumph and that steady wisdom always conquers youth

I had the best of intention
I had the purest of goals
Pray for me down by the river
Scatter my bones on the coals

Come with me to the river
Lower yourself on the ledge
Cast away your intentions
See what they find in the dredge
Track Name: Evolution
For weeks we have run with our soles worn thin
And we've burned all the wood we had saved
Now we drink from the ground like we're animals

And it's over
And it's over
And it's over

I once wore a suit to a cubicle
Now I scratch at leaves underfoot
Revealing the elegant circuitry
That’s rusting it's memory to earth

And it's over
And it's over
And it's over
And it's over
And it's over

Did we wish for this sudden apocalypse
Where the trees grip their memory and quake
While I’m losing my sense of the time before
This evolution. This turn of the wheel.

And it's over
And it's over
And it's over
And it's over
Track Name: Relinquish
To the house that we were told of
Up the mountain to the ridge
On the road a river flowing
From the rains that flood the town
All is wet and night is looming
And our resting place uncertain
And our resting place eluding

Every step our legs are burning
And the mud is ankle deep
Every breath is taut with worry
And our minds are fixed on sleep
Are we stuck out in this jungle?
Will we be caught out in the darkness
Can we outpace this darkness?

Relinquish. All is danger. Let it wash over. All is love.

Through the leaves the light turns sideways
Before it slides into the west
And my headlamps green with acid
Where the power cells have burst
You hand me yours and all is light
Taking turns in the light
We take turns in the dark

Days later on mototaxis
We fly down the mountain
Our drivers driving
Here we are flying
Trusting the hand on the gas

Relinquish. All is danger. Let it wash over. All is love.
