Produced by Daniel Gleason of Grouplove, Lunar Vacation’s debut full-length Inside Every Fig Is a Dead Wasp is a vibrant offering of melodious guitars, propulsive rhythm, and fitful, gripping vocals that take on the contemporary strain of coming of age. The album boasts a celebratory sound, a reckless sense of ecstasy specific to fluid youth, and rock-solid friendship. Drawing from early influences like Rilo Kiley and Tame Impala, and landing a little closer to contemporary favorites like Alvvays and Slow Pulp, Lunar Vacation make bright music replete with bliss.
Grace Repasky (songwriter / vocalist / guitarist) and Maggie Geeslin (songwriter / vocalist / guitarist) met in the eighth grade and immediately began sharing their own music. By the time they were old enough to drive, Lunar Vacation was born. The pair forged demo after demo, took to as many stages as Atlanta could offer them, and added Matteo DeLurgio (synth) and Connor Dowd (drums) to sonically match their songs’ increasingly vibrant spirit.
Shortly after graduating high school, Lunar Vacation self-released two EPs — Swell and Artificial Flavors — which landed them quick critical attention, millions of organic streams, and support runs for Remo Drive, Sidney Gish, and SALES.
