20-year-old songstress, Olivia Judd, is better known by her alias, LA LUNE. She has just released her dreamy EP, “Till my ribs hurt.”
Is there anything sweeter than an artist in a creative rut? I say that in the nicest way possible, because the outcome of said rut can often prove to be magical. When a musician goes off the radar and disappears from the world, there’s a good chance that they’ll return with something special. Think Bon Iver – For Emma, Forever Ago.
It is lucky, therefore, that London based singer-songwriter, la lune, did just that. Towards the end of 2018, Olivia Judd, better known as la lune, took a solo trip to the North of Portugal. Taking refuge in a small apartment, Judd slowly began to feel the inspirations return. Just six months later, the twenty-year-old songstress returned from her trip, armed with a brand-new EP.
“Till my ribs hurt” is a dreamy/electro-pop masterpiece. Hauntingly comforting, la lune’s soothing and tranquil vocals will transport you to another dimension. Dealing with themes of youth, love and identity (or lack thereof,) la lune’s new material is bold. She displays a braveness and maturity well beyond her years.

Through hard work and perseverance, Judd has been able to build up a steady and loving following. Her DIY ethos has seen her catch the attention of big guns like BBC, NME and Spotify.
With performances at large scale festivals such as the Isle of Wight and The Great Escape already under her belt, la lune is carving her own path in the music industry. And, if you’re in the UK in August, you’re in luck! She’ll be performing at the Boardmasters Festival on the 11th, the Twisted Village Festival on the 18th and at the Victorious festival on the 24th.
