After years of writing and performing, AVA LUNA has refined their doo-wop soul meets punk-as-fuck aesthetic into something bold and glaringly defiant in today's indie music landscape.

Following the release of their critically lauded first proper full-length ,Ice Level", the band spent an intense 2-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 frontman 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".

In the wake of "Ice Level", AVA LUNA's sharp edges have melted away just enough, making it easier to connect with their no-wave grooves and soaring harmonies.

Distilling everything from James Chance and ESG to contemporaries like Dirty Projectors and Of Montreal, Ava Luna have landed on an aggressively unique sound that still manages to be accessible.
