La Luz - Watching Cartoons 

Release Date: Out Now

So American trio La Luz might be one of my favourite bands of 2021 so far and this is the first tune of theirs that I've heard, that's how good new single 'Watching Cartoons' is. A jazzy drum versus bass duel kicks things off with incredibly louche style followed by some uplifting organ chords and you're transported to a Strawberry Fields-era Beatles headspace. The vocals put me in mind of Belly, Beast Coast and Tennis with that laid back style never lacking a certain edge and style that puts La Luz head and shoulders above teh competition. Oh, and there's what sounds like a sitar solo, of course.
