Luna Li is more than a musical project. It’s a world unto itself, and a kingdom of its creator’s making. For the Korean-Canadian, Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist songwriter, composer, and producer Hannah Kim, the universe of Luna Li is hyperlush and inclusive by design. It’s an evolving, musical transmission that takes its cues from nature’s healing properties to explore vulnerability and identity. A blend of indie rock and psych; where experimental neoclassical morphs into pristine pop, Luna Li is the sound of an everyday symphony, crafted from the perspective of the female gaze.
Li’s debut record Duality wrestles intimate, otherworldly questions to the ground in order to better understand the collective. Capable of both detonating an incendiary riff, or slipping into the splendor of celestial strings, the album’s power lies in its most delicate moments. The album garnered widespread acclaim and led to coverage in NPR, Pitchfork, Paper Magazine, i-D and was selected as one of NME’s Top 100 Emerging Artists. Within the last year, Li supported Grammy nominee Japanese Breakfast, Beabadoobee and Charlotte Day Wilson, performed on the main stage of 88rising’s ‘Head In The Clouds’ festival, and sold out her first North American headlining tour.
