“Five Minutes With” synth-rock band, Loon Town

Loon Town is a 4-piece time-travelling collaborative synth-rock outfit. The tunes oscillate between dense high-energy textures and sparse moments of reflection. It’s music to dance, relax, cry, or drive; across wide open spaces, from one side of the continent to the other.
