Canada Synth-Rock Band, Lunar Lander Dance Commander, create an extravagant world of their own that emits flirtatious, groovy and cheerful energy into any room throughout their latest EP release, ‘Liquid Smooth’. Bold vocals from lead singer, Stephanie Wilkinson, blast off with a dose of sass throughout the first track, “Creeper”, that gives listeners a great initial impression of the style of music that Lunar Lander Dance Commander creates.
The ground shakes at the band’s arrival throughout the second track, “We Won’t Go”, in which lyricism stands tall in confidence with old-fashioned, straight to the gut charm that is pleasing to the heart. The third track, “Free”, begins with a dialed down dose of instrumental bliss that leads into a highlight of Stephanie’s vocal strength and power through the track in which lyricism speaks of the granting of freedom through releasing societal pressure and tension.
“Open Your Eye” is the fourth track with a cunning title and immediate instrumental shove into the other side that compliments the edge of the track as Lunar Lander Dance Commander lyrically confronts indecision over a thundering bass that adds to the emotive element of the track. The fifth track, “Rooftop Renegade”, begins with a mysterious and entrancing switch of direction that carries an Arabian instrumental touch that works over lyricism that carries a modern feel mimicking artists such as Phoenix, Little Dragons, and Phantogram.
Closing out with “Free (Soak It In Remix)”, Lunar Lander Dance Commander showcase the range in which they are able to approach the recording process through a remix that is balanced with an artistic and colorful vibe that is fulfilling and rich in positive energy.
