LA LUZ: THIS FILTHY MIRAGE

May 11th, 2018

Los Angeles is a city where good and evil mingle in every golden sunset and beautiful moments seem to shine more brightly as they break through the toxic haze. This setting inspired the songs on La Luz’s third album, Floating Features, written after Shana Cleveland, Marian Li Pino, Alice Sandahl, and Lena Simon moved to L.A. from Seattle. Singer/guitarist Cleveland started having intense dreams—even nightmares where dark figures came out of the wall and pinned her to the bed. As the city seemed to take over her subconscious, the stuff of dreams became a focal point for the lyrics she brought to the band. Floating Features is out now on Hardly Art and La Luz will return to L.A. with a show at the Teragram on Fri., June 22. This interview by Daiana Feuer.
