Golden-hued n’ Reverb-drenched California trio La Luz Are Back, and with “In The Country” their first reveal since their acclaimed 2018 album!
La Luz’s frontperson Shana Cleveland says of the new single, “I moved to the country a few years ago after living in cities for most of my life. Being out in the middle of nowhere makes it easy to imagine how it would be possible to leave society all together. I love how in this track some of the most unnatural elements of the arrangement (synthesizers, fuzz, effects) create an atmosphere around the instruments that ends up feeling very natural–I can hear bugs buzzing around and bird sounds in different directions.”
“a rich, expansive bit of spaced-out surf rock with a serene refrain from singer/guitarist Shana Cleveland” – Rolling Stone
“an extremely cool piece of spectral, shimmering folk-rock. It’s full of eerie, layered harmonies and reverb-drenched surf-guitar notes, and it absolutely nails its out-of-time pop-psychedelia sound.” – Stereogum
“it shimmers with a glowing melodic light.” – Clash
