Punk Slime Recordings are proud to present the new EP from Stockholm based garage pop act Lucern Raze. Lucern Raze is the project of Luke from London's Sex Beet and the band first appeared last summer with the "Sunshine Blues" 7" and followed it with the acclaimed debut LP Stockholm One in February this year.
Following a US tour around SXSW and Burgerama Lucern Raze spent the summer working on new music in his hometown of Stockholm, and a first taste of it comes in the form of the Happy & Astray EP. Taking on a poppier approach than before Happy & Astray finds Lucern Raze in prime form, all effortless melodies and waves of distortion.
The Happy & Astray EP is out now via PNKSLM Recordings. Following the EP release the band is set to head out on a UK tour with fellow PNKSLM act HOLY around Liverpool Psych Fest and PNKSLM's Slime Ball Weekender in London, with more EU dates TBA.
"Distinctively rambunctious and deliciously loud, the title track's addictive hooks demonstrate Lucern Raze at their most compelling" - The Line of Best Fit
"Full of careering, Fisher Price synths and sunshine-stoned guitars, it's Stockholm via the American West Coast" - NME
