STG Presents and KEXP Welcomes La Luz at The Neptune on Friday, November 19, 2021.
California band La Luz are experts at making earworms out of sonic contradictions. The music of Shana Cleveland (guitar, vocals), Alice Sandahl (keys, vocals), and Lena Simon (bass, vocals) is, at times, both atmospheric and driving, golden-hued yet weirdly morbid.
Their songs interpolate everything from surf rock legends Dick Dale, Link Wray, and Takeshi Teracuchi to the airtight harmonies of the Ronettes and the funhouse organ crescendos of the B-52’s. When combined, these influences evoke the sight of a vast and glorious UFO overhead, as the beguiling music of La Luz pulls you in like a tractor beam.
La Luz have released three full-length records (2013’s It’s Alive, 2015’s Weirdo Shrine, 2018’s Floating Features) and 2012’s Damp Face EP.
