We have become so desensitized that nothing seems to faze us anymore. To us, it is just another abduction, another rape, another murder. We forget that this is someone child's, someone's sister, someone's friend. It is important that we are reminded that every life that is affected by sex trafficking is a human person. She was born from her mother's womb and she was loved. In the course of working on our new album we explored the themes of human mortality and the need to make sense of the world. This campaign therefore resonated with us and we thought “Coralline” would be spot on for this cause.

Lunarin consists of an Unholy Trinity of Linda Ong, Ho Kah Wye and Loo Eng Teck. They have been playing together for more than 15 years.

Initially inspired by grunge bands such as Alice in Chains and Soundgarden, the Unholy Trinity has since expanded their musical horizons to create a soundscape reminiscent of the progressive art-rock / heavy metal stylings of Tool, A Perfect Circle and Mastodon coupled with the lyrical sensitivities of PJ Harvey and Tori Amos.

When not busy banging out heavy art rock riffs in a hope to shock people, the trio holds professional day jobs, in line with their ongoing roles as double-agents for the underground.
