Allah-Las is a Californian rock group formed in 2008 by former employees of the renowned music shop Amoeba Music. They are deserving successors to the Beach Boys, Byrds and Seeds. This quintet led by Miles Michaud exudes cool. They have a talent for taking inspiration from the sounds of the past and using them to produce hot new music, somewhere between rapid psychedelia and charming melody. And they all have great taste. After their eponymous first album released in 2012, the product of their escapades in the clubs of Los Angeles, they released the superb Worship The Sun in 2014, a selection of more experimental compositions. Allah-Las’s luminous, thoughtful surf-rock will take us on a musical journey to the ‘60s, bathed in sun with a sound that will have us dreaming of West Coast adventures. On June 29, they’ll be performing in Hungary for the first time at the A38 Ship, so we sat down for a chat with lead guitarist-vocalist Pedrum Siadatian.
