Stay Lunar are a five-piece indie/pop band, formed in Swindon, UK and fronted by singer/songwriter Harry Leigh. The band started as a solo bedroom-project, until four brilliant humans, Charlie Skeates, James Rowland, Tom Caton and George Coggan wanted in on the action. As a five, the boys fuse dreamy and funky elements into their pop-fuelled sound, whilst still having a raw indie-rock edge and tons of live energy. Harry’s dream of creating music from his tiny box-room to share with the world was immediately magnified by a bunch that not only believed in the songs but wanted to add their own touch to them. Sadly, the bedroom wasn’t big enough for the five of them, so they had to venture into proper venues to find their feet.
