“Instead of throwing all of the versatility the band’s six pieces have to offer at the listener at the same time, they choose to minimally complement each other, resulting in wonderfully spaced, open arrangements for Lora-Faye Ashuvud’s delicate vocals to occupy. The first offering from the EP is ‘Wind Up,’ and it’s a sparse excursion with lots of gravity.” - Stereogum

“If you're looking for an artist somewhere between tUnE-yArDs and Anna Calvi, a woman who goes by the name Arthur Moon might just be your best bet. Hers is a kind of experi-avant-pop that you can deep dive into via her debut EP Our Head. Sometimes the songs revel in a delicious discordancy (‘Room'), sometimes they recall and dark-hearted Fiona Apple (‘Wind Up’).”- Noisey

“Arthur Moon switched it up by showcasing her perfect rhythmic changes and unexpected tempo transitions. Each song throughout the set continued to take listeners further into an enchanting, hypnotic journey filled with haunting vocals, unique textures, and intricate chord progressions.” - Wild Honey Pie

“sonorously boisterous… imbues vulnerability with calmness.”- Deli Magazine

“… experimental, ‘incorrect’ pop” - Time Out

“… ethereal… enchanting… euphoric” - Sensible Reason

“The band has released their debut EP Our Head, a dizzyingly raw release that combines spaced-out electronic components with more traditional rock instrumentation. During the live show she is a commanding presence: Lora-Faye is able to throw her voice disorientatingly into small nooks and crannies, highs and lows.” - No Smoking Media

“Brooklyn based Arthur Moon played a sold out show at National Sawdust last week… [The] show was unpredictable, emotional, powerful and very romantic.” - The Wild Honey Pie

“‘Wind Up’ is a sobering and sublime mirror to modern western society.” - Blah Blah Blah Science

“‘Boxing’ is our latest favorite song to come out of Brooklyn, NY… The beautifully spaced arrangements blend perfectly with Lora-Faye Ashuvud’s lyrical compositions as this sprawling track rises and falls in tempo.” - Next Northwest
