Anna Lunoe’s new OWSLA weapon will make you “strip down to your undies”
Sydney prodigy Anna Lunoe has been killing it since making the full-time move to LA last year. When inthemix caught up with her in December 2013 she was “next level busy”, dividing time between touring the world with The Weeknd and putting in serious studio hours.
Now one of the fruits of her labour has caught the attention of Skrillex: as the story goes, Sonny Moore heard Lunoe’s slice of tribal techno during her debut Coachella set in April, signed it to OWSLA and mixed and mastered it, and now we have Bass Drum Dealer, a four-minute ride through pounding tribal drums, trademark OWSLA bass and sirens and the menacing refrain, “I’m your high heel killer, I’m your bass drum dealer, and I always deliver.”
As Lunoe wrote when she dropped the track earlier today, “I hope this makes you wanna strip down to your undies and do cartwheels. Xoxo.” You can listen below and download it for free at Nest HQ. Next up for Lunoe is a series of US shows in the lead up to Lollapalooza and, as she promised last week, “a bunch of new music starting next week.” Good times ahead.
