“She’s got smoky eyes that draw you near but there’s a darkness in them that keeps your outstretched arms from wrapping around her. But, no matter how hard you try, you still can’t walk away. Watch Brooklyn’s Ava Luna flirt with temptation in this shivering version of their debut LP‘s title track, “Ice Level,” shot at Different Fur Studios.” – Yourstru.ly
It’s 2013 and the remains of Earth resemble Pluto, a lonesome tundra. Our van survives, and so do we, and we decided that we should continue our traditions. We’ve been working on new songs to this effect — and since sharing is the most beautiful form of celebration, we booked a tour. We’ll see old friends, gain a new outlook, and share these sounds. The new songs are like blankets, let’s see how well they weather this dangerous new world.
After a Chinese Democracy-esque gestation period, our new music video is finally here. Thank you to everyone who made this with us. You can see the video on Noisey HERE.
Carlos Hernandez tells Noisey: “I wanted to tell a little story, where Becca (our leading lady) escapes from a sticky situation. The trusty narrator (yours truly) watches, from a dark, geometrical vantage point, as a social scenario plays out. I love parties! Especially when everyone is invited.“
Coming soon – pre-order link for tour inspired mystery release, featuring brand new songs.
