The Luyas Announce “Too Beautiful To Work”

doc055full(album artwork for The Luyas Too Beautiful to Work)

The Luyas will release their new album Too Beautiful to Work on February 22 (February 21 in the UK). A picture-perfect collection of echo-drenched space-age pop songs, Too Beautiful to Work buzzes and pops into retro-futurist sonic bliss. From the vintage effects crackling throughout “Tiny Head” to the cerebral repetition found on the title track, the Luyas’ smart, heady pop sounds vital and modern, yet utterly timeless. The band also knows how to write the perfect hook (“Cold Canada”), pairing it with the more cinematic and atmospheric (“Spherical Mattress,” “Worth Mentioning,” “What Mercy Is,”) side of the band’s elaborate vision. You can read more about The Luyas and Too Beautiful to Work HERE. Check out the new single “Tiny Head” below. Also, after the jump you’ll find the full track listing as well as Luyas live dates with The Antlers and Ra Ra Riot.
