The Lunar Effect

"A heavy exploration into new rock territories while maintaining and utilizing brilliant ingredients of rock n roll history"

The Lunar Effect are a 4 piece from London comprising of Jon Jefford, Dan Jefford, Josh Gosling and Brett Halsey that play fuzz laden riffs mixed with vintage psychedelia in a hard rock homage to bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, laced with a modern, post-grunge twist. They have described their sound as a heavy psyche, fuzzy, riff laden juggernaut with the odd patch of slow burning grooves. All with the soaring vocals of Josh which really just ties everything together.

The band was originally formed in 2014 by guitarist/singer Jon Jefford and his younger brother Daniel on drums. After writing and recording some material they put together a gigging band with various local musicians. During this time they recorded the EP Strange Lands and began playing various venues on the London gigging circuit. Following the departure of a couple of members they met bass player Brett Halsey and singer Josh Gosling in 2016 and everything clicked into place, with the band beginning to have a shift in sound with the new vocal stylings of Josh. This led to the re-release of their E.P "Strange Lands" after re-recording the tracks to highlight the change in sound with a new singer. This went on to receive glowing reviews from music blogs around the globe, also leading to the band being heard on Kerrang radio, Radio X and Planet Rock radio.

Since the re-release of Strange Lands the band began working on material for their first full length album, which will show the bands more group based writing style following the bulk of Strange Lands being penned predominantly by Jon. This new approach has led to more risks being taken with compositions and each member really pulling to take the bands sound to new places. This new record which is due to be released in late 2017 should really show just how far the band have come as musicians and composers/songwriters since the initial release Strange Lands. As part of the build to this release they have also released a live video of their new song "Weaver" in a performance for Hunter Studio's 'Live Artist Series' which is available to view via the bands YouTube channel.
