"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 New York singer-songwriter, electronic musician, & multi-instrumentalist Kaitee Page. A classically trained violist/violinist, Lunic fuses contemporary and classical instrumentation with electronic composition.
Lunic's most recent album, Future Sex Drama, is a blend of dark, ethereal synthpop and electro 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, but was deported a year later. From 2008-2012 she remained in Albany & New York City for two years each, and then moved to San Jose, Costa Rica in December 2012. Much of the inspiration for her writing is derived from her travels.
Her first release, in 2008, was a collection of demo songs called Skeletons written & recorded in California, followed quickly by the EP Splinter, recorded in London in just 3 days. They were followed up in 2009 by Lunic's official debut album titled Lovethief, written & recorded in upstate NY. In 2012 she released Future Sex Drama, a full-length written & recorded in Germany & New York City, originally described as, "sultry, ethereal, synthpop," by Lunic herself.
On Future Sex Drama, Lunic begins taking her first steps as producer, bringing together the experimentation behind her earlier work and a cutting edge pop aesthetic.
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, & 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."
