Joining us in the studio for this Indie Rock Hit Parade Live Session is the surf-pop combo La Luz. Ever since the 2013 arrival of their aptly-titled debut album, It’s Alive, La Luz have charted a focused course through the worlds of garage rock. Formed by guitarist Shana Cleveland, bassist Lena Simon, drummer Marian Li Pino and keyboardist Alice Sandahl, La Luz recently released Floating Features, their third LP for Seattle label Hardly Art. Collaborating with Dan Auerbach, La Luz are in their element on Floating Features, which showcases the band’s deft instrumentation and otherworldly harmonies. While on tour, the group (temporarily operating as a trio without Sandahl) stopped by our studios to perform some of the new songs live.
