"Let La Luz sing your alarm ringtone every 6am morning for a month and they’d probably still have you starting the day in a state of mellow bliss."
The Guardian

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.

LOS BITCHOS

It’s been a busy lockdown for Los Bitchos, we’re beyond excited to say, they’ve finished recording their debut album with Franz Ferdinand frontman, Alex Kapranos, and of course, it sounds like the biggest party imaginable. With an arsenal of new tracks and a crazy tour schedule, they’re chomping at the bit to get out and play live again, and of course release their debut album into the wild. Further details on that to follow…

Championed by the likes of Cheryl Waters, Khurangbin, King Gizzard, Marc Riley, She Shreds, Vogue, NME, DIY and SXSW. Los Bitchos are set for a massive 2021 & 2022. Before lockdown they’d been wowing crowds supporting the likes of Mac De Marco, Ty Segall, Viagra Boys, Bill Ryder Jones, Dry Cleaning, Kikagaku Moyo and Methyl Ethel. Make sure you get along to a show to catch their effervescent and infectious instrumental Cumbia, at a venue or festival near you.

MELENAS

Melenas are a garage fuzz pop reverbcore group from Pamplona, Spain who will make fans of The Feelies, Stereolab and classic C86 jangle pop fall for their shimmering guitars, sweet melodies and driving rhythms. They also add a touch of sun-kissed, soft focus psych to their sound. Brilliant melodies, fresh bass lines, acid keys and a Lindy Morrison drum style are adorned with fuzz and phasers and surrounded with heavenly vocal harmonies. After having toured their debut album worldwide with shows at Primavera Sound, SXSW (twice), Eurosonic, Benicassim and even the New York Fashion Week (where they performed at the Ulla Johnson runway), their second LP, ‘Días Raros’ was released in May 2020 via much beloved Chicago imprint Trouble in Mind Records (Mikal Cronin, Jacco Gardner). In 2021 they won the MME Awards at the Eurosonic festival, a prize that has been previously won by Rosalia, Hinds, Fontaines DC or Dua Lipa
