Kuru Luma is a band from Australia. Or maybe it's just one guy. The details are kind of odd. Either way the band is putting out a creative string of conceptual EP’s. According to the band “Luna Moth is the first EP in a four part EP story about a man's struggle with the current norm and expectations of the system we live in. The first EP represents anger.”
They are a rock band through and through. The songs are a mixed bag and the production could have used improvements. Up first is “Something Minor.” The first thing I noticed was how loud and prominent the bass drum is. It really kicks. Even louder in the mix are the lead vocals. After an initial sour note the vocalist gets on track and delivers a solid vocal performance. The music has a very serious feel to it with no real levity.
Up next is “Entry.” The drums are heavy like a metal song. The two voices desperately needed compression and to be balanced. One voice is more or less screaming. You can say he sounds angry which would work with the concept of the EP. The band has a little more success with “Pact” and “Tomorrow” but the best song out of the batch was “Circle” in my opinion.
Luna Moth is a decent first effort but there are definitely areas for improvement.
