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 Bussiere Kim, the universe ofLunaLiis 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,LunaLiis the sound of an everyday symphony, crafted from the perspective of the female gaze.When the pandemic started,Listarted self-recording instrumental interludes as a radical form of care. By letting others into spontaneous moments of creation, she made her process transparent and communal. Her self-recorded “jams” —video snippets of her constructing beats piecemeal —went viral many times over, racking up over 8 million streams and producing a fiercely loyal following. Its resulting self-titled EP garnered widespread acclaim (“Why aren’t people queuing up to buy beats from this person?,” askedThe Needle Drop’sAnthony Fantano.) and led to coverage inFashion,Paper Magazine,i-Dand a slot opening for Japanese Breakfast. In 2021Liperformed on the main stage of 88rising’s “Head In The Clouds” festival, and in 2022 was selected as one ofNME’sTop 100 Emerging Artists.LunaLi’s debut recordDuality(featuring Jay Som, Dreamer Isioma, and beabadoobee) 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 powerlies in its most delicate moments. “Each song on the album has some element oflight and dark,”LunaLisays. “Where there’s happiness there’s still uncertainty; where there’s anxiety there’s also beauty; and where there’s tension there’s freedom.”
