In 2016 two long time friends Andrew Wicks and Jamie Clarke began writing music together with the aim to let their music, thoughts and voices be heard. What resulted was the establishment of the band now know as Lunar Umbra.
Lunar Umbra released their debut EP, ‘Phases’ in late 2016, alongside their first single “Somebody Else”. The EP was a collective of songs the pair had written, recorded and produced together in the their bedroom studios. Lyrically the Phases EP explored the realms of mental health, love and self worth.
In January 2018 Lunar Umbra released “Pull us through” and as can be seen in the offical music video addresses the political climate at the time.
In February 2018, it was time to expand and bring fresh energy into the band with Isaac Stephens on drums and Mitch Treharne on keys. Now as a four piece the band brings a whole new dynamic in their writing and live performances.
In December 2018, with Isaac and Mitch firmly established in the band, Lunar Umbra released a new EP titled ‘Unplugged’. The EP consists of stripped back songs the band has recorded for their debut album release in 2019.
