Los Angeles trio La Luz are releasing a new self titled album on October 22nd via Hardly Art Records. Now they have shared a new song from it, “The Pines,” via a green screen-aided video. Hamilton Boyce directed the karaoke-inspired video.

La Luz is guitarist and songwriter Shana Cleveland, bassist Lena Simon, and keyboardist Alice Sandahl. The band’s last album was 2018’s Floating Features. La Luz includes the band’s single, “In the Country.” When the album was announced they shared another new song from it, “Watching Cartoons”.

Listen to “The Pines” everywhere songs are streamin’ and check out the music video directed by our friend Hamilton Boyce. Set in a mysterious karaoke bar and featuring Shana as a Rodeo Clown, Lena as Emo, and Alice as…. Alice from a couple years ago, “The Pines” is a social distancing fever dream that includes unbelievable choreographed dancing, jaw-dropping copyright-free backdrops, and the world’s first Giant Sip.

Adrian Younge known for his work with hip-hop, soul, and jazz acts—produced La Luz. He had this to say in a previous press release: “We both create music with the same attitude, and that’s what I love about them. They are never afraid to be risky and their style is captivating. I don’t work with many bands, but I love taking chances on people that share the same vision. We both love to be ourselves, and it was an honour to work with the band.”
