Watch La Luz’s new video for “Metal Man”

On the heels of their critically acclaimed self titled release, La Luz have shared a video for their single “Metal Man.” Director Hamilton Boyce shares: "Since “Metal Man” is such a vivid and colorful song I wanted the video to be more of an extension or visual translation of the music than a standalone piece with the song as a backdrop. During the idea phase, I brought Kubrickian sci-fi, disco lighting, and 60s psychedelic visuals to the table. The band brought Warholian pop art and levity. The overlap I think fits perfectly with the themes and moods of the song."  You can watch the new video by clicking HERE

What people are saying about La Luz: 
 
“La Luz’s self-titled fourth album sees a band at the top of its game” - The Line of Best Fit
 
"La Luz harmonise their dusky, ethereal voices in lingering, softly hued layers that seduce the senses." - The Saturday Paper
 
“Surf guitar meets kaleidoscopic psych on a career best LP.” - Uncut
 
"La Luz’s new single “In The Country” is 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." [“In The Country”]  Stereogum
 
"La Luz create a vibrant and balmy atmosphere on “In The Country”, with warm guitars and Cleveland’s tender vocal. The fuzzy and chirping electronic additions do indeed sound something like cicadas in the nearby trees – or perhaps something further flung like intercepted alien broadcasts. Either way, La Luz are settling back, pushing aside any obligations, and taking it all in, purely enjoying being “In The Country” – and with this song they invite us to join them in repose and enjoy the summer air." [“In The Country”] Beats Per Minute 
 
"Known for reverb-heavy guitar licks, a tasteful deployment of dynamics and singular harmonies––a range of emotive “oohs” and “ahhs” that vacillate between haunting melancholy and revelrous mirth––the band (Shana Cleveland-guitar, Lena Simon-bass, Alice Sandahl-keys) has crafted a lush, earthy and undeniably psychedelic collection of songs for La Luz. And the record is also the band’s most personal." [“Watching Cartoons”] WJCT
