Ava Luna is the Brooklyn buzz band that keeps on buzzing and rightfully so because they are pretty damn special. The Coney Island based septuplet (yes, there are indeed 7 of them and no, it’s not a ‘shoot the freak’ kind of thing) embody the phrase “neo soul.” But to give them the ubiquitous they sound like this band meets this band (Dirty Projectors and Jamiroquai) wouldn’t be doing them full justice. With doo-wops and well-rehearsed harmonies, this band seamlessly takes familiar musical worlds into new and exciting places.
With a headlining set at Cake Shop on Wednesday June 15th and a Northside Festival showcase with Twin Sister on the 18th, this is gearing up to be another Ava Luna summer — and we’re not mad about it at all. You can listen and download over at their bandcamp, but the true wonder to behold is their live show. Catch them before they blow-up this fall touring with Toro y Moi. You can say “I knew them when…”
