AVA LUNA Premiere New Single “PRPL”

AVA LUNA Premiere New Single "PRPL". Their upcoming album "Electric Baloon" comes out March 4th on Western vinyl. AVA LUNA play February 20 in Oberlin, OH.

 

Ava Luna are happy to share their latest single “PRPL”. Today also marks the beginning of a month long tour with up and comers Krill, hitting both coasts and every where in between including several dates (with more to come) at SXSW.

Electric Balloon was recorded by Carlos Hernandez and Julian Fader, both of whom, apart from being in Ava Luna, have gained further recognition as go-to recording engineers within the Brooklyn music community. The album was later mixed by Jimmy Douglass whose lengthy credits include the likes of Justin Timberlake, Aaliyah, Timbaland, Television, Gang of Four, etc.

After years of writing and performing, Ava Luna has refined their doo-wop soul meets punk aesthetic. Following the release of their first proper full-length Ice Level, the band spent an intense two-week period writing and recording in upstate New York. Unlike previous efforts that were meticulously mapped out, the songs that would become Electric Balloon were “a family effort” according to front-man Carlos Hernandez. For the new album, former Columbia composition student Hernandez relinquished the reins a bit, opting for a more organic approach to writing the material for what would become Electric Balloon. As Hernandez explains, it was a “…birth of confidence. I grew closer to my bandmates, began to see the roles of a family playing out. Ethan cooks dinner for all of us, we make lewd jokes, and then ‘after-dinner storytelling’ takes the form of playing music.”
