Atlanta newbies, Lunar Vacation is a five-piece dreamy, surf- rock group testing out their sound in Atlanta. The band has only been together since summer 2016 and have played shows opening for Ne-Hi and American Wrestler. The talented Grace Repasky is the lead singer, and guitarist, and her best friend, Maggie Geeslin plays guitar alongside bassist John Michael Young, keyboardist, Andrew Harris, and drummer, Connor Dowd

In the summer of 2016, four highschoolers got together in hopes of introducing a new sound to the local music scene. Starting out of a bedroom, Lunar Vacation has quickly emerged into the Atlanta scene by writing tunes that make you want to bop. Their sound fuses elements of psychedelic rock with dream pop to deliver a carefree, melodic sound that is sure to get you groovin!

Described by the Washington Post as "throwback indie rock," Makeup Girl is a music lover's dream come true. From their humble beginnings as a rock duo started by singer Brody Steck and drummer Caleb Schiebel, the band has expanded and matured into something much greater.

Joined by multi-instrumentalist Johnny Leander, and bassist Avery Steck, the band is now at full power.

Drawing from the likes of Stevie Wonder, the Strokes, Funkadelic, and the Arctic Monkeys, Makeup Girl's sound can be described as an explosive combination of pop rock and other genres including jazz, R&B, latin, and funk. Drummer Caleb Schiebel tirelessly pushes his set to the height of its capabilities, pumping out tight rhythms that allow guitar lines and melodies to run wild. Audiences should expect an engaging live show, ranging from energizing rock songs to dreamy jazz inspired numbers. Makeup Girl songs are filled with surprises as the band flows from groove to groove, seamlessly switching tempo and time signatures as the songs progress.

The band is currently preparing to release their newest and most ambitious EP to date, “Living Safe” - an atmospheric group of songs designed to pull listeners into a world of their own. With lush and carefully constructed arrangements, Makeup Girl’s newest release warns listeners of the dangers of “living safe” urging them to follow their own path in life. Although the most cohesive project from the band so far, “Living Safe” still keeps with the theme, using a mixture of many different styles and grooves that gives this release a sound of its own. Check out “Living Safe”, available everywhere May 11th.
