La Luz might sound like blissed-out Cali surf rock, but their music has a darkness that lies beneath. Maybe that's because the all-girl four-piece hails from Seattle, where storm clouds and rain are a way of life. In fact, they've dubbed their sound "surf noir."
Today we're premiering the video for "Black Hole, Weirdo Shrine," the sort-of title track off their new album, Weirdo Shrine (out today on Hardly Art). It's a psychedelic trip into a nightmarish desert, where danger lurks behind every cactus. "We really wanted an animated video for this song, and Meghan’s idea was to make something that felt like Looney Tunes meets El Topo’ which sounded just right," singer Shana Cleveland told us, referencing Alejandro Jodorowsky's cosmic fantasy Western.
