"Distinctive and sultry psychedelic indie with hints of downbeat British electronica acts The xx and Portishead. Mournful dashes of violin and melodic lead guitar flourishes." -NXNE
Lunic is NY singer-songwriter, electronic musician, & multi-instrumentalist Kaitee Page. A classically trained violist/violinist, Lunic fuses contemporary & classical instrumentation with electronic composition.
Lunic's most recent album, Future Sex Drama, is a blend of dark ethereal synthpop and electronic rock similar to Metric, The xx, Lights or Ladytron. "Glossy enough for the dance floor but retaining that sinister edge." -CMJ
Page, born in upstate NY, attended university in Nashville, TN and moved to Los Angeles in 2003. Her experience as a performer began as an electric violinist and keyboard player in various LA-based pop/rock bands, most notably the Australian rock band Porcelain (Universal Records). Page began writing songs in early 2005 after seeing the British alt. rock band Muse perform live at Coachella Music Festival. In 2007 she relocated to London, and spent the next 7 years touring, traveling the world, writing new music, & studying Spanish, French, & German. Much of the inspiration for her writing is derived from her travels. To date she has visited 25 countries.
Her first release, in 2006, was a collection of piano-based indie rock songs called The Uglylights (demos), followed quickly by the EP Splinter, recorded in London in just 3 days. They were followed up in 2009 by Lunic’s fan-funded album, Lovethief. In 2012, she released Future Sex Drama, a full-length originally described as “sultry, ethereal synthpop” by Lunic herself. She has also released a plethora of digital singles throughout the years.
On Future Sex Drama, Lunic begins taking her first steps as a producer, bringing together the experimentation behind her early work and a cutting edge pop aesthetic. She describes her work as “a sensual, cathartic escape.”
Each album tackles a different set of influences and styles. Her newest album, Future Sex Drama, incorporates influences as wide as The xx, Ladytron, Metric, and Placebo drawing from genres like electro-pop, new wave, synthpop, darkwave, alternative, and art-rock. This approach has allowed the project to remain flexible and evolving.
Lunic has shared the stage with artists such as Moby, PiL, Lights, Mindless Self Indulgence, Company of Thieves, Dredg, Meiko, & Bell X1. Her performance is, "a psychedelic display of lyric poetry in the form of an understated, powerful show." -TriState Indie. In 2012, Lunic was the winner of the PlanetRox competition and was chosen as the US headliner for the Envol et-Macadam festival in Quebec City, Canada. In 2013 Lunic was the Grand Prize Winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the Electronic Category for her song, "War." In 2014 she was a semi-finalist in the rock category of the International Songwriting Competition for her song, "Magic Love-Hate Thing."
