In their debut EP Believe, Brooklyn-based musical group Lady Moon & The Eclipse hope to create a piece that examines their multiculturality, spirituality and melody. Named after lead vocalist, Ngonda Badila, whose name means “moon” in Congolese, the six-person band fuzes R&B influences with afro-beat rhythms to tell stories on “inclusivity and spiritual unity”. The band—the ‘Eclipse’ to Ngonda’s ‘Lady Moon’— includes Nkoula Badila and Ntangou Badila as backup vocalists, Arlen Hart on the keys, Jonathan Camuzeaux on bass, and Ken Reichl on drums. Their lead single “Rollercoaster,” which the group released a video for earlier this year highlights Ngonda in a white scarf and ethereal lighting singing directly to the camera. An afro-futuristic sound and visual, “Rollercoaster” resonates with Lady Moon & The Eclipse’s overall appeal—funk meets afrobeats, old R&B meets new wave.
