Los Angeles' Lo Moon have been chosen as one of three very special artists to pioneer the new Slingshot program by NPR Music and VuHausSlingshot is a new collective effort among tastemaking public radio music stations to discover and elevate the most promising up-and-coming artists.  Program directors from VuHaus' public radio music station network selected Lo Moon - as well as Big Thief andJamila Woods - as the inaugural class of Slingshot artists participating in signature studio sessions and live events across the country. The unique content, interview and live event series will kick off this fall.

In tandem with the Slingshot launch, a super awesome 360 degree video of the band's performance of "This Is It" for KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" show can be seen HERE.  

Lo Moon will also be returning to the road through the end of the year, with headline shows at Rough Trade in Brooklyn and the Troubadour in Los Angeles, as well as opening for the likes of PhoenixRide, and London Grammar.  All tour dates are below.  

Lo Moon are a Los Angeles-based band - comprised of Matt Lowell (vocals/guitar),Crisanta Baker (bass/keyboards), and Sam Stewart (guitar) - whose sound meets at the intersection of artists like the xx and Talk Talk among others.  With only two songs out in the world - 2016's "Loveless" and 2017's "This Is It" - the band is already becoming one of the most talked-about new artists to emerge from Los Angeles's burgeoning indie scene.  The trio have received early accolades from The New York TimesNPR MusicV MagazineKCRW, the Los Angeles Times, and more.  Having opened for the likes of Phoenix, Glass Animals, The Lemon Twigs, Air, London Grammar, and others, Lo Moon are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album with producers Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) and Francois Tetaz (Gotye).
