Lumoy is an emerging, Sydney-based singer/songwriter, musician, who cites an eclectic array of influences on her work, including house music’s gospel, 70s soul and R&B, Middle Eastern and Gregorian chant, international pop and more. Over the past couple of years, the emerging Aussie artist has been working with Paris-based musician and fashion photographer Steve Wells on her debut EP, Maintenant an effort that sees her drawing from her own varied influences and tastes paired with soulful and bluesy vocals. She also is working on writing meditation music, and seeking other multidisciplinary creative projects.
The EP’s latest single “Bet On You” is a bluesy number that’s one- part Pretenders/Chrissie Hynde and one-part Divinyls “I Touch Myself,” with the song being built around a 12 bar blues-like guitar line, a steady backbeat paired with Lumoy’s sultry delivery and a soaring hook. The song evokes an aching, desperate, swooning longing for someone that’s begun to drive you a bit crazy.
“Bet On You” is “a track about being intoxicated and willing to give myself away to a drug I couldn’t get enough,” the emerging Aussie artist explains of the song.
Maintenant is slated for an August 25, 2023 release.
