Allah-Las @ Exit07, 10 Oktober 2014


ALLAH-LAS met while working at Amoeba Music, a key destination for music lovers in Los Angeles. They began gigging in Los Angeles in 2008, refining their live performance, and finally released their first 7” single „Catamaran“ / „Long Journey“ in 2011. In 2012, they began their relationship with Innovative Leisure, releasing their first self-titled album, „ALLAH-LAS“, anchored by their second single „Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind)“ / „Sacred Sands“. The release was met with critical acclaim and the band toured extensively in the States and abroad before going back into the studio to record their follow-up. ALLAH-LAS‘ second album, „Worship The Sun“ (out Sept 16), expands on the sound established by their maiden effort, honing their fusion of West Coast garage rock and roll, Latin percussion and electric folk. The songs are evocative of Los Angeles’ storied past. Beatniks, artists, surfers, nomads. Remnants of a bygone Sunset Strip. Golden tans and cosmic sunsets. One can feel the warmth of the sun, but the band deftly avoids the kitsch so often indulged by lovers of these things. Hints of Byrds, Love, Felt, and those who follow are threaded into the tapestry. „Worship The Sun“ is the perfect soundtrack for the greatest surf film never made. Source:
