Laveda

Music

Albany, NY

On their 2020 debut album What Happens After, Laveda draw a post-apocolyptic landscape through layers of colorful sound and ethereal melodies. The band fuses polished pop song clarity with a 90's guitar driven sound reminiscent of groups like The Sundays or My Bloody Valentine. Founding members "Jacob Brooks and Ali Genevich explore the great yawning unknown. From the freedom and uncertainty that rests at your fingertips or the distant and possibly desolate future, they capture adolescent restlessness with big walls of sound and a dreamy melodious warble" writes Toronto based blog Ohestee. NYC's Look At My Records! calls Laveda "a young band with a fully realized voice and perspective, and What Happens After couldn’t feel timelier." Brooks and Genevich spent most of the summer and fall of 2021 in Los Angeles, working again with producer Dylan Herman (Beck, Pynkie) on their second full-length LP. The record is anticipated to release early 2023 on NY/VT based label Paper Cup and features the full live band, including Dan Carr on bass and Joe Taurone on drums.
