All the way from Los Angeles, rock band La Luz has recently brought out ‘In the Country’ – a fresh new track that encapsulates life living outside the city.

Lead band member Shana Cleveland said a few words on the single “I moved to the country a few years ago after living in cities for most of my life. Being out in the middle of nowhere makes it easy to imagine how it would be possible to leave society altogether. I love how in this track some of the most unnatural elements of the arrangement (synthesizers, fuzz, effects) create an atmosphere around the instruments that ends up feeling very natural–I can hear bugs buzzing around and bird sounds in different directions.”

The four-piece band has also released a music video to go alongside the track which you can watch below:

On top of this, La Luz has planned a 34-date world tour starting in North America this year followed by Europe in April and May next year. You will even be able to catch them in Bristol, Brighton, and London towards the end of April. You can purchase tickets via the band’s website here.
