LOUNA was formed by Vit (bass) and Lou (vocals) of Moscow's leading alternative act TRACKTOR BOWLING to pursue wider musical ideas that were not fit within their original band. For this they have recruited guitarists Rouben Kazariyan (Southwake), Sergey Ponkratiev (Ens Cogitans) and young but talented drummer Pilot (Wayzz, Pony Clouds). After 9 months of musical creative research, hard work and intense rehearsing the new band presented a three song self-titled internet-EP and played its first successful gig at one of Moscow's famous venue ― Tochka revealing even more songs reflecting further musical direction of the band. Trying to escape any particular genre boundaries LOUNA's music extends beyond the regular alternative rock cliche incorporating a variety of different styles into their songs. Along with obvious new-metal, alternative and post-grunge influences you will find touches of eastern ethnic music and definite hardcore and even punk rhythmics in LOUNA's music.
