DOWNLOAD: Ava Luna - Daydream (MP3)

Ava Luna

NYC funk punks Ava Luna are set to release the followup to 2012's Ice Level, Electric Balloon, on March 4 via Western Vinyl. From the sounds of the first single, "Daydream," Ava Luna are embracing the same influences as usual (Talking Heads, ESG), but still putting their own spin on it. You can download that song above or stream it below, and also below you can preview more of the album in the new teaser video, which makes its premiere in this post.

Ava Luna have a ton of dates coming up, and as usual, a good amount of hometown shows. First they play the Apollo on February 8 as part of the 'Apollo Music Cafe' series with Rachel Brown and DJ Hard Hittin' Harry. Tickets for that show are on sale now. After that, they'll go on a tour with Krill which includes another hometown show at Silent Barn on March 24.

Krill also play a free show at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on 2/7 with Speedy Ortiz, Odonis Odonis, Heeney and Infinity Girl.

All dates are listed, along with the song stream and teaser video, below...
