The album has been hailed by critics as “luminous,” “highly emotive,” and described as “dark pop with a taste of anarchy.” During the show, Luna Shadows performs three songs from Digital Pacific in a live, stripped down setting. She performs “nite swim,” “trash tv,” and “The Nineties.” Follow Luna Shadows @lunaxshadows Presented in partnership with Music Connection
