Lady Moon & The Eclipse Share Their Futuristic Afro-R&B Sound In ‘Rollercoaster’
Watch the visuals for "Rollercoaster," the latest single from Brooklyn-based band Lady Moon & The Eclipse.
In their debut EP Believe, Brooklyn-based musical group Lady Moon & The Eclipse hope to create a piece that examines their multiculturality, spirituality and melody.
Named after lead vocalist, Ngonda Badila, whose name means “moon” in Congolese, the six-person band fuzes R&B influences with afrobeat rhythms to tell stories on “inclusivity and spiritual unity” notes the band’s website.
The band—the ‘Eclipse’ to Ngonda’s ‘Lady Moon’— includes Nkoula Badila and Ntangou Badila as backup vocalists, Arlen Hart on the keys, Jonathan Camuzeaux on bass, and Ken Reichl on drums.
Their lead single “Rollercoaster,” which the group released a video for earlier this year highlights Ngonda in a white scarf and ethereal lighting singing directly to the camera.
An afrofuturistic sound and visual, “Rollercoaster” resonates with Lady Moon & The Eclipse’s overall appeal—funk meets afrobeats, old R&B meets new wave.
If you’re intrigued or hooked, catch Lady Moon & The Eclipse at their next performance at the Brooklyn Bowl on June 27. In the meantime, take a listen to Believe below.
