Ladies and gentlemen, The Aliens have landed. Comprised of ex-Beta Band personnel and armed with a bottomless bag of psychedelically inclined rock and acid-dipped electronics, the Scottish band's freedom of spirit and certainty of intent set them apart from the current crop of guitar-slingers. Inspired by Sergio Leone and Serge Gainsbourg, Brian Eno and Brian Wilson, Larry David and Ol' Dirty Bastard, their songs in the key of Fife reference the past while belonging resolutely to the future.

The Aliens recorded Luna in an isolated, ramshakle studio in a small Scottish village. Self-producing the album, the band embraces their freedom from the major record label machine and explores each track with focus and wilful experimentation. Luna is an ambitious, thrilling, and immensely rewarding album, the sound of The Aliens fully realizing their extra-terrestrial musical vision. Its songs unfold into rolling, expansive sonic panoramas. It's a mesmeric, psych-tinged, honeycomb folk-pop masterpiece that runs free, and has been drawing comparisons to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.

Formed in 2005, these Aliens have history. Between them, they have been behind some of the most enthralling British music of the last decade: John Maclean and Robin Jones were in the Beta Band, and Gordon Anderson was a founding Beta Band member who went on to record two albums under the Lone Pigeon moniker.
