Artist, producer and innovator Luna Morgenstern invites you into her euphoric trance-inspired world of alternative pop with her new single “Dance Dance (Don’t Go)”. The Amsterdam-based, Cologne-born creative ushers in a new era with the effervescent title track from her forthcoming EP.

The new project captures the cravings for living life without limits… for a rush of adrenaline and the simple yearning for something, anything to happen. Combining club-leaning sonic touch-points with her love of some of pop music’s brightest shining lights Charli XCX, Shygirl and Caroline Polachek, Luna blends progressive, modern pop-songwriting with festival-ready dance influenced production.

‘Dance Dance (Don’t Go)’ captures a storm of emotion within its pulsing sonic walls complemented by Luna’s confident, nonchalant attitude. A different take on yearning, it’s playful and disruptive as it explores desire and the potential of a friend becoming something more.

“‘Dance Dance (Don’t Go)’ is a daydream about a long term crush. It’s about hidden looks and lusty-thoughts in a close knit friendship, where you don’t want to lose the person, but also can’t help falling for them.It’s when you try to suppress your emotions, that opening the door to the fantasy becomes like a delicious rush on its own, possibly surpassing reality by far. The melancholy of knowing that there is no future in it battles with the euphoria of feeling for someone so intensely.”
Luna Morgenstern

The EP also doubles down on the nostalgia with an accompanying CD release, which is available for pre-order now. Pairing fictional and autobiographical elements, the EP stands as a fragmented series of diary entries covering topics of coming of age, identity and love in a world dominated by social media. 

A self-taught producer, Luna shapes powerful melodies and delicate vocals with production that takes inspiration from EDM behemoths Kaskade, Da Hool and Gigi D’Agostino: “Growing up, I used to buy these compilation CDs called BRAVO, so I would end up listening to these huge dance and trance hits when I was really young”.

Luna Morgenstern‘s new single “Dance Dance (Don’t Go)” is out now via Nine And A Half.

The EP’s release follows on 9th June 2023.
