The Luyas

The Luyas went into the studio on a February morning with the plan of getting some drum sounds to start writing songs for a new album. As the mics were going up, the band received a phone call. There had been a sudden death. The incomprehensible event left the band in an existential daze. The mics put themselves up that morning.

WATCH // The Luyas Perform Live for Here Today

While on tour last year (weird to say), The Luyas met up with Copenhagen’s Here Today for a live session. We have three new videos to share: “Face,” “Fifty Fifty” and “Channeling.” All three songs are off their album Animator! Watch the performances above!

WATCH // The Luyas Perform at LE GUESS WHO?

While at Le Guess Who? Festival earlier this month, The Luyas performed live to a packed house at The Village Coffee. It’s all for a 3voor12 session. You’ll notice songs off their recently released album, Animator. Watch above.

INTERVIEW // Jessie Stein Talks to Nonstop Sound

The Luyas’ Jessie Stein recently moved to New York City and here she is talking to NBC’s Nonstop Sound. In this new piece, Jessie talks about her reasoning for making music and the feeling she wants her records to invoke. “I guess it’s in a way an attempt to combat the commodification of everything.” Watch the interview above.

Finished with the first interview? Check out Jessie in a new episode of the Beginnings podcast.

WATCH // The Luyas Perform “Talking Mountain” for Out of Town Films

The Luyas met with Philadelphia’s Out Of Town Films during CMJ for one of their many live sessions. Filmed in the basement of an old loft somewhere in Greenpoint, the video features The Luyas performing “Talking Mountain.” It is a track off their recently released album, Animator.

You can also check out the audio from The Luyas’ live CMJ session at the Fred Perry Artist Lounge / Stratosphere Sound Recording Studios. InSound has an exclusive download – you’ll find it HERE.
