Los Angeles trio La Luz are releasing a new self-titled album tomorrow via Hardly Art. Now they have shared a new song from it, “I Won’t Hesitate,” via an amusing video in which the band embark on a spy caper. Cigarettes that secretly shoot darts, phones built into shoes, trench coats, secret meetings, agents disguised as clowns—it’s got it all. Nathan Castiel directed the video. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

La Luz is guitarist and songwriter Shana Cleveland, bassist Lena Simon, and keyboardist Alice Sandahl. The band’s last album was 2018’s Floating Features. La Luz includes the previous single “In the Country.” When the album was announced they shared another new song from it, “Watching Cartoons,” via a video. “Watching Cartoons” was one of our Songs of the Week. Then they shared another new song from it, “The Pines,” via a green screen-aided video. “The Pines” also made our Songs of the Week list. That was followed by “Oh, Blue,” shared via a lyric video self-directed by the band.

Adrian Younge—known for his work with hip-hop, soul, and jazz acts—produced La Luz. He had this to say in a previous press release: “We both create music with the same attitude, and that’s what I love about them. They are never afraid to be risky and their style is captivating. I don’t work with many bands, but I love taking chances on people that share the same vision. We both love to be ourselves, and it was an honor to work with them.”
