On the heels of their critically acclaimed self-titled record, La Luz has announced the release of a new single entitled “Endless Afternoon,” available today worldwide on all DSPs. LISTEN TO "ENDLESS AFTERNOON" HERE | YOUTUBE Shana Cleveland of La Luz says that “Endless Afternoon” is a “California lullaby. The melody for this song came to me while I was hiking in the hills above the Yuba River. About the sweetness found in slow days close to home.” This song is the A-side of a physical 7” that is b/w the track “San Fernando Shadow Blues” (available digitally on June 14th) with both songs physically available on July 7th via Hardly Art. You can pre-order this 7” via the Hardly Art MiniMart and Bandcamp.

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”] - WJC
