Introducing: La Luz
Not ready to leave summer? Let's look backwards a bit with some indie surf. With an appealing sound that evokes Dick Dale or the Ventures combined with a '60s girl group, the young, all-female Seattlites called La Luz are just what the DJ prescribed.
The band members are Shana Cleveland (guitar), Marian Li Pino (drums), Abbey Blackwell (bass), and Katie Jacobson (keyboard). And they all sing. Give their new Damp Face EP a spin. Swing to the fast numbers line "Sure as Spring", feel a chill with the atmospheric surf noir instrumental of "Damp Face". If you like it, the Bandcamp site is your new best friend. The digital EP is available for "name your price" and the cassette for $4. Hang on to those summer vibes with La Luz, my friends.
