Tomavistas Festival 2022
May 19-21, 2022
La Luz are Shana Cleveland (guitar, vocals), Alice Sandahl (keys, vocals), and Lena Simon (bass, vocals) and this trio from California are expert on creating one-in-a-kind songs, a music 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. Everything can happen when listening to them.
La Luz (Spanish for “the light”) have been illuminating the alternative music scene since 2013 when they released their acclaimed first full-length “It’s Alive”. This album was followed by a second work titled “Weirdo Shrine” with Ty Segall serving as producer and engineer. The trio kept touring making their name bigger during those years until 2018 when they came back to California to record “Floating Features”, their third and most polished and ambitious album to date and produce by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.
Now they are working on the next chapter of their career: a forth album with which to continue bringing light to the musical panorama and that they will present officially at Tomavistas 2022.
