Today, pysch-pop four-piece Lo Moon offer another taste from their forthcoming third studio album, I Wish You Way More Than Luck, with ‘Borrowed Hills’. A true coming of age record, ‘Borrowed Hills’ set the tone and theme for the entire album. Listen HERE


Speaking about the track, Lo Moon’s Matt Lowell reveals, “Like many of us, I had an overwhelming feeling of confusion during the height of the pandemic in 2020.  It was a feeling that was strangely reminiscent of another time in my life…2001.  I was recruited to play hockey as a kid and was attending Pomfret School in Connecticut during 9/11. My older sister was living in Manhattan, my parents were on Long Island and all communication was down. That complete confusion and isolation drew me to music and I picked up my roommate’s guitar and over the next week or so wrote my first song. My music teacher at the time convinced me to play the song in front of the entire student body in the iconic chapel on campus.  Expressing the vulnerable feelings of the time and hearing my voice reverberating through that chapel altered my life. In December 2020, I went back to The Clark Chapel in search of reconnecting with that feeling.  I hit record on my phone and Borrowed Hills was the first idea that came out. I shared it with the band and immediately we were on a path for our third record. During the recording process of the album we went back to the chapel, to capture the spirit of that room. We knew we needed to have that reverb, that pipe organ, that piano, our voices singing together in that space, and the overall feeling of just being in that space. So much of what we recorded in those couple days together made this record, and it all started with Borrowed Hills.”


Borrowed Hills” follows the band’s announcement last month that their highly anticipated third studio album, I Wish You Way More Than Luck, is due for release April 5th via Thirty Tigers / The Orchard. Accompanying the announcement, the band shared two new tracks, including focus single, “Water” and a b-side “Connecticut,” – Listen HERE.

All three tracks were written by Matt Lowell and produced by Mike Vernon Davis (Ratboys, Pool Kids, Great Grandpa), with Alan Moulder (Depeche Mode, U2, Ride, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, The Smashing Pumpkins) mixing the record.


Accompanying the new music, an official Saoli Nash-directed music video for “Water.”  The video’s Creative Director, Warren Fu (Daft Punk, The Strokes, Depeche Mode, The Killers), a close friend and frequent collaborator from over the years, directed the official video for “Evidence” last year, as well as their first music video for “Loveless,”


New music follows the band’s tour last year which included four SOLD OUT nights at The Lexington in London. They also completed SOLD OUT underplay residencies last fall in Los Angeles, which saw them play four packed-to-the-rafters shows at Zebulon, and three jam-packed shows at the iconic Piano’s in New York City’s Lower East Side. Throughout the run, the band was joined by special guests, including Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES (WATCH), Adam Granduciel from The War On Drugs (WATCH), Curt Smith from Tears For Fears (WATCH) and Bartees Strange (WATCH).


Lo Moon comprises bassist/keyboardist Crisanta Baker, guitarist Sam Stewart, drummer Sterling Laws, and Lowell, the group’s singer, and chief songwriter. The band has toured with everyone from The War on Drugs, Phoenix, Glass Animals and Air to London Grammar, Chvrches, Metric, Muna and The Lemon Twigs.
