“The Lunar Effect are a wonderful exponent of the beautiful ingredients of rock, fuzz and big-assed riffs”
“A modern take on soulful rock music firmly rooted in the seventies”
— Kozmik Artifactz Records
The Lunar Effect play fuzz laden riffs mixed with vintage psychedelia in a hard rock homage to bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, laced with a modern twist.
The bands original line up was formed in 2014 by guitarist/singer Jon Jefford and his brother Dan on drums. After recording some material with various local musicians, they met bass player Brett Halsey and singer Josh Gosling in 2016 .
This led to the release of their E.P “Strange Lands” which received glowing reviews from music blogs around the globe, leading to the band being heard on Kerrang radio, Radio X and Planet Rock radio.
In 2018 the band signed with Kozmik-Artifactz Records, releasing their debut album 'Calm Before the Calm' earlier this year. The album has already attracted critical acclaim from the most respected blogs, youtube channels, websites, radio stations and magazines worldwide.
