Bella Lune Releases Fourth Studio LP ‘Tranzendance’
Arizona indie electro group Bella Lune has released their fourth official studio album, Tranzendance, on January 31, 2015, via the band’s self-run record label Aetheria Music.
Their first album since 2013’s Secrets draws on influences from dance-oriented music like EDM, EBM, pop and witchhouse, and adds a more bass-heavy approach to their song template of post-punk and ethereal music. Lyrical topics include introspection in both positive and negative lights, in addition to the politically charged Cease To Exist, which concerns climate change.
The album as a whole is a collaboration between Bella Lune front-woman Fuchsia, keyboardist Hurley and Mike Jenney of Alter Der Ruine. Jenney laid the beats and percussion for each song and provided additional production. Under his side-project Dystonix, Alex King of BlakOpz also contributed a remix of Hollow Hearts, a song from Secrets, adding layers of dance-oriented synths and a heavier atmosphere.
Tranzendance is available for purchase as a digipack on the band’s website http://bellalune.com/. Fans can also name their price for a download of the album on the Bandcamp pageÂ http://bellalune.bandcamp.com/. A portion of all proceeds go toÂ musicandmemory.org, a charity that seeks to enrich the lives of elderly Alzheimer’s patients in nursing homes through music therapy.
