First Play Friday // ‘Watching Cartoons’ – La Luz

In case you missed it, I started a NEW music series on the blog a few weeks ago (not that I’ll ever forget the original series Music Mondays!) where I show off a new or upcoming release I’ve been listening to.

Previous tracks include ‘I Did It To Myself’ by Dakota Jones, ‘Powerhouse’ by Stranger Girl, ‘Safe Bet’ by Cucamaras, ‘Fall Away’ by Rowdy Outsider, ‘The Absence of You’ by Islas and ‘I Only Party (w my Baby)’ by SLUGS.

For the seventh post of the series, I’m spotlighting ‘Watching Cartoons’ by La Luz. The Seattle-based quartet show off their lush rock sound with a track that is full of soft vocal harmonies and woozy, psychedelic beats.

From the opening line, the vocal harmonies take the listener through the mundane act of, as the title suggests, “watching cartoons (in my room)”.

Producer of the track, Adrian Younge said “We both create music with the same attitude, and that’s what I love about them,”

“They are never afraid to be risky and their style is captivating. I don’t work with many bands, but I love taking chances on people that share the same vision. We both love to be ourselves, and it was an honor to work with them.”

The track is playful, with gorgeous vocal harmonies and a beach-pop sound. It has a laidback feel to it and is a song you could easily listen to on repeat (take it from me as I definitely have!).

The track is about the simple act of watching cartoons yet it teases a full length album that looks at the natural world and human chemistry, two things which have come into sharp focus over the last year or so. This was my first experience of the band and their sound but it won’t be my last.
