"Lukka Explores psychedelic space on Encounter"

LUKKA explores psychedelic space on "ENCOUNTER," plays Pianos on 11.16
New York psych-rock revivalist LUKKA lets dynamic range form the backbone of her upcoming debut, ENCOUNTER, her understated vocal performance emerging as if from an antique telephone against bombastic, interwoven guitars and a punching percussive backbeat. It’s a spot-on choice in terms of production, as it fills the entirety of the LP with a sense of wandering space, evocative of both psych pioneers like The Zombies and contemporaries such as POND and Tame Impala. Careful to not lose the forest through the trees, however, ENCOUNTER never gets too spacey, tunneling forward with explosive sunburnt energy on tracks like “Life Is Like On TV” and recently dropped single, “Blackhole Fusion,” finding the perfect balance between stillness and motion that channels psych’s colorful past in the fashion of contemporary, energetic alternative rock. - NYC The Deli Magazine/ Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)


"Lukka- Black Hole Fusion"

Why do we like this?
Right, so I wasn't sure about this song when it started. The intro is interesting though, and I stuck around until the 0:36 mark to see how ti all filled out. Turns out that "filling" hit all the right notes, and my ears were quickly won over by the band's psychedelic rambling.


When I say "band," I should correct myself. Lukka is actually a one-woman-band, fronted by an artist based in New York. She's got quite the catalog up on her SoundCloud, but "Black Hole Fusion" comes as the first one to grab my attention for an Indie Shuffle blog post.


Here's hoping you dig it as well! - Indie Shuffle
