If, in a parallel universe, Hank Marvin had joined Jefferson Airplane and the band were subsequently commissioned to pen the soundtrack for Quentin Tarantino’s first Western, you would expect it sound exactly like La Luz. In the real world though, La Luz are four incredibly talented women from Seattle.

Picking up the mantel from contemporaries such as Hinds and Warpaint, the four-piece are due to release unto the world their third LP Floating Features on the Hardly Art imprint. It’s an album doused with drama and saturated in reverb, shimmeringly beautiful and lurchingly sinister from start to finish. This should be the soundtrack to your summer, if it ever arrives, and La Luz should be your new favourite band.
