Atlanta-based Lunar Vacation formed in the summer of 2016 as a way to escape the
monotony of suburban Catholic-school life. The five members- guitarist/vocalist Grace Repasky,
guitarist Maggie Geeslin, bassist John Michael Young, keys man Matteo De Lurgio, and
drummer Connor Dowd- began writing and performing in their junior and senior years of high
school. Unsure of how to label their fusion of dreamy melodies, surfy progressions, and psych-
rock jams, the five-piece has described their music as “pool rock” Their first single, “Anna”,
released in early 2017, quickly gained attention, and the band self-released their first EP,
entitled “Swell”, later that year.
They released their second project, “Artificial Flavors”, in 2018, further crafting their sound. After
all members finally graduated high school, the five teens headed out on their first tour as a last
hurrah before starting college. Lunar Vacation will play their first U.S. tour in the spring of 2019.
