The Lucitones latest release Three Moons, on Batcave Records, is a unique combination of already uniquely distinct influences which leads to a truly innovative and individualistic raw sound. Formed “in a dark alley in Whitefish Montana” The Lucitones bring a fascinating sound: upbeat and rhythmic yet still gritty and raw, accompanied by dark imagery and themes again juxtaposed with acceptability and appeal. “A New Domain” displays their far reaching influences, a dark ominous soundscape grounded by a raw dance-able drum pattern and the equally enticing upright bass is complimented by somber lyrics delivered in an infiltrating and catchy melody and tone. Punk, Noise Pop, Alternative Rock, Folk, Surf Rock and Pop Punk all uniquely emanate from this LP, “Mark Of Cain” accompanied by a full music video, is an outstanding amalgamation of many genres, a call-and-response chorus with repeating chants is topped off with a Bluesy guitar solo at the climax of the track. “Change The Locks” and “Confessions Of A Misanthrope” both amp up the intensity of this LP only further turning the tempo and mood up on an LP jam already packed with energy. “12 Bar Crawl” may begin with a slower tempo but the raw attitude remains only to be kicked into full gear halfway through the track, a fitting end to a fantastic album from a very exciting band.
