La Luz’s New Song “California Finally” Is The Golden Paradise You’ve Been Waiting For All Winter: BUST Premiere

by Elizabeth F. Olson

La Luz, the all-women surf noir band, are back with their latest album, Floating Features, out later this year. You may have already seen the music video for “Cicada,” the first track off of Floating Features, which was released in early February. Today, we’re proud to be one of the first to share another track off of Floating Features, the sunny, reverberating “California Finally.”

Singer/guitarist Shana Cleveland tells BUST of the track, “We moved to California as a band right before we started work on this album, and it truly is a weird golden paradise. I really wanted this song to have the propulsive force of my favorite Velvet Underground song, ‘Foggy Notion.’ Marian tends to grow limbs when she’s playing and the drums get more and more intense by the end of the song, a moving train gaining speed. Also it’s Alice’s dad’s favorite song!”
