Back in July, La Luz foretold the apocalypse with the mushroom-cloudy video for “Brainwash,” but now, the all-female quartet are prepping the release of their proper full-length debut. On October 15, Hardly Art will release It’s Alive, an 11-track offering filled with surf-rock riffs, impeccable four-part harmonies, and kinda-creepy organ work that underlines the ghostly longing inside the LP’s heart. La Luz have already shared opener “Sure as Spring” (taken from this year’s Damp Face EP), centerpiece “Big Big Blood” (via Pitchfork), and the misleadingly labeled “Pink Slime” (via Stereogum). Now they’ve made the entire effort available for streaming: Listen below.
