Californian rock band Allah-Las come to Exit07 as they tour their second album, “Worship The Sun”.
Described as a fusion of West Coast garage rock and roll, Latin percussion and electric folk, the sound of the Allah-Las evokes a bygone era of a Los Angeles populated by beatniks, artists, surfers, nomads.
Recalling at times the likes of The Byrds or Love, the band only released their first album in 2011. Produced by Nick Waterhouse, the eponymously titled debut was critically acclaimed, described in Pitchfork as “an effortlessly wistful batch of starry-eyed, minor-key beauties that gently ruminate on the usual young-guy subjects.”
With their sophomore effort, the four-piece expand their sound and write songs that Drowned In Sound describe as having “a wistful tone and strung out poeticism… Allah-Las create a sort of nonchalant nostalgia.” Commenting on their first UK concert, The Guardian described it as “a blissful 45 minutes on a cold night.”
Support comes from Souls.
