The English indie rock band The Luka State released their latest single earlier in the month.

Bring This All Together has a lighter texture than much of their previous material with an indie dance temperament, which they deliver with their to be expected flourish of percussion that beats through the speakers.
The English indie rock band The Luka State are planning to release an LP in the middle of 2017.

In the interim they released a four track EP – entitled – Demos – to keep abreast of current thinking – on the 4th.
Readers of longer stay may well recall in my initial introduction of The Luka State in 2014 I expressed a hope that they would keep a close connection between themselves the music and the audience given their early successes. With some fortune, two years later, they do remain as connected to their fans as they were then.
The video for Lies! Lies! Lies! – below – the first of the four tracks on the EP is a live version hosted at a fans house in Paris (France) and if you fancy having The Luka State come round and play at your place – this is the link as to how to go about it.
Thanks for remaining as you were guys and retaining that vital link so many forget about the moment they sniff ‘success’.
Having formed about a year ago The Luka State have already made a significant impact with appearances internationally as well as a couple of releases behind them and a further single Rain set for availability on the 7th July.
The Luka State have added a dash of folk to rock and roll to produce a sound that has punch in a velvet glove as, whilst the there is a pugilism to the music, they are wrapped inside complexities of melodies and whimsy to the rock derivatives, which captivates the ears. Whilst the compositions are stretching for the players the trio are able to transfer this to an out-put which has a lightness of touch, that allows the audience to enjoy the music, not having to unravel the textures.
Their pure enjoyment and pleasure at being touring and creative musicians is palpable in the music, which, whilst being finely crafted doesn’t come across as aloof. I hope that The Luka State can retain this connection between themselves, their creativity and the audience in the future.
