La Luz shares the official video for “Watching Cartoons”, a new single from their upcoming self-titled album available October 22

La Luz has always been a group with a vision. Their discography is a study aimed at balancing heavenly and haunting sounds for a lush style of rock music all their own. On their self-titled fourth album, La Luz fearlessly embarks on a new realm of emotional intimacy with a collection of songs imbued with the mysteries of the natural world and the magic of human chemistry that manifested in the musical ESP between guitarist and songwriter Shana Cleveland, bassist Lena Simon and keyboardist Alice Sandahl.

To help shape La Luz, the group found a soul mate with producer Adrian Younge. Mainly known for having worked with hip-hop, soul and jazz artists, Younge saw in La Luz a musical kinship that transcended genres. “We both make music with the same attitude, and that’s what I love about them, he says. “They are never afraid to take risks and their style is captivating. I don’t work with a lot of groups, but I like to take risks with like-minded people. We both love to be ourselves and it has been an honor to work with them. The album was recorded at Linear Labs Studio in Los Angeles.

In the wake of the single “In the Country” previously released by La Luz, the group is sharing a new video for “Watching Cartoons”, directed by Nathan Castiel.

This multimedia adventure follows the group as they spend the day watching cartoons, but it becomes clear that something is wrong! After receiving a mysterious TV, the group begins to get caught up in their favorite cartoons. Will Shana save Alice and Lena before it’s too late?
