Luna 04:40
Lyrics: It's a consequence of greed Wanting so much more than you could ever need It's the possibility To be more than what you are Invincible yet lost within a dream Luna Do you remember who you are? Luna I would animate you Shine a light behind your eyes Send shivers down your spine It's your nature at work Angels calling your higher self to serve It's the path to where you were Before you lost your way Free to breathe new life into the world Luna Do you remember who you are? Luna I would animate you Shine a light behind your eyes Send shivers down your spine

Lyrics: Whenever I walk around in Santa Fe at noon I think of what you said, and all the things that we've been through It's never easy to move somewhere new But that's what we did, and I'm here with you When I'm sleeping, I dream of what we had Then I wake up and you're holding my hand It's never easy to move somewhere new But that's what we did, and I'm here with you In the daylight this street seems surreal The vacant tracts The steel, glass and the whole damn deal It's never easy to move somewhere new But that's what we did and I'm here with you

Dreamer 06:12
Lyrics: When time was slow I waited for your call Would it ever come? Money, jobs and other instruments Designed to keep us in the mix Desire Thought Independent thought So innocent and sweet To be beautiful Somehow beautiful It's all I've ever dreamed of Dreamer A child killer With eyes like yours Driven by his lack and need Be careful, dear listener Just where your dreams may lead Dreamer

Halo 04:59
Lyrics: How I wish for you The holiness that words can bring Fresh in love, without reason Without thought Our minds unpacked and young Creased by habit, calling, speech We all inhabit what we're thinking Dance around the earth with her In a blacktop blur Her hands, they form a halo The future sweet and certain How I miss you When we are far apart Miss the shelter in your arms In our vows To share a soul and share a fate We found the solace we were seeking Dance around the earth with her In a blacktop blur Her hands, they form a halo The future sweet and certain

Lyrics: I came to thee in the midnight sun I came to thee in the midnight sun I was on my knees, crying 'rescue me' I came to thee in the midnight sun I sought salvation for my soul I had to find my way back home Take me away from these aches and pains I sought salvation for my soul

Calgary 05:47
Lyrics: I've got a long walk ahead of me West to east on 17th In the soft sun and the summer breeze The city seems to be at peace Born and raised here Gone, erased We're on our way We will celebrate This beauty we can't contain We're on our way I can't see our indie scene Squeezing into old skinny jeans We tailor what's handed down We make the best of what's around Gone, erased here Home again We're on our way We will celebrate This beauty we can't contain We're on our way Friends stay strong Please don't leave You are the heart this city needs We're on our way We will celebrate This beauty we can't contain We're on our way

Eden 04:55
Lyrics: Eden is calling A distant shore, so far away We'll leave the fallen We will find our home Eden is waiting A distant shore, so far away We'll keep on sailing Until we find our home

Brunello 05:11
Lyrics: What a lovely feeling When we talk as human beings What a lovely night To see each other eye to eye If you shattered a glass If you stained the floor I would only love you more I would pour for you, I would pour I would pour for you, I would pour I would only love you more What a fleeting chance To feel how our flavours dance How I've often thought of Pouring out this bottled blood I would pour for you, I would pour I would pour for you, I would pour I would only love you more If you shattered a glass If you stained the floor I would only love you more

about

"Calgary musician Evan Freeman’s debut album Luna is quite possibly one of the most ambitious and successfully so works of epic musical art to come out of this city in years if not decades — a masterfully sculpted piece of pop-informed shoegazing wonderment that is as intricate and realized and brilliant as it is pretty and pleasurable and spiritually uplifting.

It changes things."

-Mike Bell, Calgary Herald

Luna tells a story of rebirth and transcendence. From ambition to aspiration, from the personal to the universal. The thematic arc of the album is based on the life cycle of the Luna moth (Actias Luna): from larva to chrysalis to fully-realized being.  

Evan weaves this theme drawing from his experiences growing up in Calgary’s emerging arts scene; his travels in Iceland, Mongolia and the rocky mountains; and his recent two-year stint living in Mexico City.

Recording took place at OCL Studios, a creative oasis located near Calgary, with engineer Josh Rob Gwilliam behind the board. Derek Downham (The Beauties, Andy Kim, Serena Ryder) produced the record, infusing pristine textures and moments of overwhelming intensity into the songs. The album was mixed by Arran Fisher (Freak Heat Waves, Woodpigeon, The Summerlad) and mastered by Noah Mintz (Broken Social Scene, Constantines, Wintersleep).
