La Luz – Cicada (Hardly Art)

Surf noir they’re calling this and the reality is as good as that label sounds.

There are somewhat expected guitar breaks over a major to minor foundation.

Mysterious dream laden vocals carry a message of desire? transcendance? other things?

However the core of the tune is an absolutely killer bass line so good it keeps me coming back every time on its own.

It’s the definition of stalking but somehow not threatening. Propulsive certainly. Savage momentum without doubt. You’ll be humming along to it within 5 seconds upfront and centre in the mix as it is.

Honourable mention to the excellent churning organ stabs which ride shotgun and complete the picture.

Catch this wave now.
