[hot off the press] Y LUV Residency

The young Los Angeles quintet Y LUV has been invited to perform the March residency at The Central S.A.P.C. in Santa Monica. The band has already secured an outstanding lineup for each Tuesday of the month, featuring fantastic Southern California bands bands like The Colourist, Capital Cities, and Tic Tic Boom!

Like their lineup of bands for the residency, Y LUV is an eclectic mix of genres, incorporating psychedelic rock, spine-chilling harmonies, explosive beats and aggressive guitar riffs. They draw comparisons to bands from Bloc Party to The Killers and White Arrows, blending in winding guitars one minute and heavy bass the next.

Y LUV’s sophomore EP, How Chill Can You Let Go, was followed by two stand-out singles premiered by BlahBlahBlahScience.com (“Earthquakes,” November 10th) and Earmilk.com (“Keep It Rollin,” November 29th). How Chill received praise from a variety of Los Angeles tastemakers like The Deli Magazine, Buzzbands.la and Beat Crave. The Deli LA wrote of the band, “Being fans of local favs Foster the People and Superhumaniods gives an inkling of their tastes, but Y LUV kicks out more rootsy grooves that hook you front to back.”

This residency sets the tone for Y LUV’s Spring 2012. They will spend much it playing shows and touring, finally leading up to the release of their third LP later this year.

Keep It Rollin

[hot off the press] Y LUV//Keep It Rollin

Today the tastemaker indie/electronic blog (and one of my personal favorites) Earmilk premiered the brand new single from Y LUV, “Keep It Rollin’.”  More electronic-leaning that most of their previous tracks, Y LUV mixes their usual genre-crossing with a party vibe that’s bound to get you moving. To listen, download, and read more about the song, head to earmilk.com.

“Keep It Rollin'” is the second of two new singles from Y LUV this November.  The first, “Earthquakes,” premiered earlier this month on the blog Blahblahblahscience. These singles follow their celebrated EP, How Chill Can You Let Go, released earlier this year.

With both singles, Y LUV creates indie-pop fused with an amalgamation of psychedelic rock, spine-chilling harmonies, explosive beats and aggressive guitar riffs, conjuring comparisons from Bloc Party and The Killers to Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys. As you can see with the diversity of these two tracks, they shine when drawing upon a vast array of inspirations and not limiting themselves to a specific genre, while still producing a cohesive sound. [source: planetary group]

If any of you LA locals want to catch ’em live, you’re in luck, Y LUV will perform on December 7th at Silverlake Lounge.

The track premiered last week on the blog Blah Blah Blah Sciencebut you can now grab it here as well…and unless you don’t like good old fashioned indie-pop, combined with chilling harmonies, explosive beats, and aggressive guitar riffs, there’s really no good reason why this song isn’t already on your iPod.

[watch] Y Luv//All Night

You’ve heard of “going down the rabbit hole” à la Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, but have you heard of “going down the panda hole”?  The video for All Night is an evolution of the inspiration for the song and takes the this idea and runs with it.

“The song’s about trying to find something, but you’re not quite sure what,” says Y Luv’s frontman Freddy Janny. “Once we had the panda idea, it was perfect. We’ve gone down the panda hole.”

The video was filmed at Venice Beach, California, a spot known as much for its cinematic beaches as for its strange mix of characters. “What better location to bend reality in?” poses Janny. The scenes of the band playing were filmed on a rooftop near the band’s almuni campus, University of Southern California. The band wrote the video along with director Jane O’Neill and and Sanjiv Solanki contributed the cinematography.
