Los Angeles-based duo LUCKY +LOVE have announced they will release their debut album "Lucky + Love' on June 30.

The lead single is "Digging in the Earth', the video for which was directed and edited by cinemaphotographer and animator Steve Barron.

These 8 electrified tracks were written when bandmates Loren Luck (drums, synths) and April Love (vocals, keyboards, guitar) were living next to a noisy construction site in Glendale, California.

Here they successfully incorporate synth-heavy bass with polyphonic harmonies and crystalline vocals, propelling the music into trance-inducing territory.

Inspired by artists such as New Order, OMD, Depeche Mode, Washed Out, Tycho, and Cocteau Twins, their sound falls beautifully into an everyman's land between electro rock, dream pop, electronica and synth gaze.

This music has, in the words of Loren Luck, "lots of LFO, riveting arpeggiations, simultaneous solos via spacey square waves, with April's smoky vocals".

This record is an electronic music record, but comes from a more traditional place, where OMD or Kraftwerk came from - one of an unsampled, unprogrammed live recording originally at 192kHz/24-bit quality.

"Musically, as much attention was paid sonically to the organic moog instruments as April's voice, and we offered the analog synths space in the songs to breathe to their true dynamic potential," says Loren Luck.

This album came to light through recordings at Eagle Rock's Cave Studio with Josiah Mazzaschi (Light FM), sessions with sound editor Morgen Stary, and Comp-ny Studio with Grammy winner Be Hussey (Guides).

The vinyl release was mastered by Kevin Gray, who most recently engineered the reissue of Vangelis' Blade Runner.

LUCKYandLOVE currently write and record in their music studio in Echo Park, California.

The band is looking forward to recording new tracks with producer John Fryer (This Mortal Coil, Nine Inch Nails, Cocteau Twins, Love and Rockets, His Name is Alive) with plans to drop more singles later in 2017.
