Allah Las @ The Zoo
Supports: Nice Biscuit

Having been a band for close to a decade; it brings us great pleasure to finally announce the Allah Las' debut tour of Australia.

In 2012 the band released their stunning debut LP unto the world with the help from R&B extraordinaire Nick Waterhouse. With Waterhouse's finesse and the band's willingness and possibly naivety they produced a truly beautifully simple, melancholic and timeless record. One of our favourite self titled records, that deserves its place next to the likes of The Velvet Underground's self titled.

Two years later their sophomore LP Worship The Sun received critical acclaim from The Los Angeles Times who said the album “…lets the band’s trippy vintage rock absorb all sorts of new Southern California influences. Latin drumming, L.A.’s midcentury avant-garde beach culture and Laurel Canyon harmonies.”

Third album, 2016’s Calico Review was recorded in Los Angeles’ historic Valentine Recording Studio. For the album, Allah-Las experiment with new instrumentation adding violin, harpsichord and Mellotron to their sound. The twelve tracks on Calico Review demonstrate how the group has pivoted from focusing on specific influences to crafting songs that reflect their own feelings of freedom, grit and melancholy.

“Cramming as much guts and passion as possible into three and a half minutes or less—while burning it’s own path, with brooding, lonesome songs, tightly restrained surf inflected musings on girls and freedom.” - The New Yorker

“Los Angeles garage-rock gurus Allah-Las tap into an alternate reality where the world is but a California dream.” - SPIN
