Lunikk has triumphantly returned with a new musical statement in the form of their new video and single titled ‘Daggers’ released today.
Lunikk is a truly expiremental duo. Created by Kristina Yordanova and Denny Popov, Lunikk is as much a brand as they are a band. And that is such a good thing. Just listen to ‘Daggers’. It is signature from the first note to last. You feel what is Lunikk. And now, with a slightly hip hop feel and tone added into the mix, you see how they can add to that already signature sound and take it to new levels.
Within that signature sound mentioned above, you have to artists with distinct styles of their own that seamlessly meld and mold into what Lunikk is. Kristina is a phenomenal singer and Denny is an original musician. Both respected songwriters. That is what Lunikk is to me. Originality at it’s finest.

Lunikk is an Eastern-European experimental-pop duo created by Kristina Yordanova and Denny Popov. After meeting a couple of years ago, Denny was in a rock band and Kristina was deeply deluded that music is something she doesn’t want to pursue. After many shared moments and conversations about music, they understood that their brains were chattering at the same frequency. As fate would have it, while Kristina kept a notebook with written poetry (called “Let’s live on Mars”) Denny’s band broke up, and slowly but surely the two discovered they wanted to hate and love the world together through the same melodies.
Consequently, they promised each other that there will be no compromises and that no ego can stay in the way. They built up a studio in a room at their apartment and 2 years and many cigarettes later, their imaginary world started to shape itself. A world that is based on the grey reality they are living in but delivered in a way anybody can relate to. The beats and instrumentals are all done by Denny, but the vocal lines and the messages are framed by Kristina. Influenced by artists such as Robert Johnson, Son House, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Muse, Coldplay, Twenty One pilots, Lorde, and Billie Eilish, to name a few. Their name comes from the Bulgarian word for “Moon”.
