The Luyas Release New Live Video by Vincent Moon and Derrick Belcham. Tour with the Dodos, Liam Finn, and Ra Ra Riot


Last October, The Luyas put together a multi-media experience at Pop Montreal. They transformed the space at Red Bird studios using lighting and sculpture into an entirely new psychedelic world to house their musical performance. Takeaway Show’s Vincent Moon and A Story Told Well’s Derrick Belcham captured the performance in the above video titled “Everything Is Outta Sight.” It is a visual and aural spectacle, a truly special moment preserved in this stunning video.

Following tour dates with Ra Ra Riot that lead to South by Southwest, the Luyas will meet up with Liam Finn on a tour that will take them across North America. After barely enough time to catch their breath, the Luyas leave for a month in Europe, including several weeks touring with the Dodos. Check out full tour dates after the jump.

A Mighty Big Welcome to the Luyas!

Montreal’s the Luyas have signed to Dead Oceans and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Jessie Stein steers the Luyas ship which is also manned by Pietro Amato, Mathieu Charbonneau, and Stefan Schneider. Check out the live video above to get  a taste of the Luyas. This band has such an impecable skill at creating stunning and spontaneous dream pop with such a casual grace that their music becomes that much more alluring. The joy this band finds in making this music is as readily apparent in the smiles on their faces, as it is in their sound.

The Luyas are currently working on a new full-length album, with Jeff McMurrich (Tindersticks, Constantines) working as engineer. Also contributing to the new album is friend and colleague Owen Pallett, who is lending his skills as violinist and arranger on a few songs. More on the new album soon. The Luyas will perform at Pop Montreal this weekend and the CMJ Music Festival next month in New York. For those of you heading to Pop Montreal, the Luyas are putting together an entire art installation complete w/ dancers, sculpture, lighting effects, costumes, and actors for a performance at Red Bird Studios this Saturday. Check out a couple of pics of the set after the jump.
