After releasing their first record, It’s Alive, La Luz survived a traumatic car accident on tour which helped them reflect on having deep resilience in life.
For their second album, Weirdo Shrine, the band called Ty Segall to help produce a record full of “spur-of-the-moment flourishes that occurred while recording.”
The band’s music is a bit of surf-rock, doo-wop, and tight four-part harmonies.
Here’s what other people have said about La Luz!
“La Luz is ready to take on the world.” — MTV Hive
“…a uniquely haunting — albeit occasionally unintentional — spin on the innocent guitar-driven pop of the late ’50s and early ’60s, nudging the sock hop vibes of Dick Dale and the Shirelles into a darker parallel dimension.” — Paper Magazine
“Imagine all of the Shangri-La’s trying, precariously, to balance on top of Link Wray’s surfboard.” — Pitchfork
“One of those bands that hit the ground not running, but sprinting.” — Elle
