Decatur, GA-based outfit Lunar Vacation have returned today with the announcement of their second album, Everything Matters, Everything’s Fire – produced by Drew Vandenberg (Faye Webster, Toro y Moi, Of Montreal) which will out September 13th on Keeled Scales. The news comes backed by the record's first single Set The Stage, a towering, scuzzy pop jam centred around the choices we often make when clouded by love. “This was the first love song I wrote about someone and then sent it to them. That is the first and last time I will ever do that. Love can make you do really strange things,” says vocalist and guitarist Gep Repasky (she/they). “It took some convincing on my end to fully realise this song, but that’s the best part about making music with my bandmates; they are the voice of reason and I trust them. So once the walls were down, we went in blazing, and changed the vibe of the sad, acoustic demo to the monster that it is now.” Take a listen for yourselves below with the music video directed by actor and musician Finn Wolfhard.
