Brooklyn’s indie-soul crew Ava Luna kicked off the year right with a national tour in support of Twin Sister, and the release of their latest full-length, Ice Level. The tight and compact 8 track album continues on with the sort of post-punk/R&B vibe the band has been known for, and you can stream the whole record from their bandcamp site right now.
Way back in 2010, we invited the band to headline our first AON Volume show, along with Gay Blades, Weekends & True Womanhood. Well, since then, they’ve stayed quite busy both in the studio and on the road, and have shared the stage with several other AON favorites such as Toro Y Moi, Wild Moccasins, Sharon Van Etten, and The Antlers, to name a few.
Just this month, the band completed their second national tour of 2012, and we were lucky enough to capture their set as they touched back down in the District.
Check out a few of the highlights from their set in the clip above, as they perform “Wrenning Day”, “Clips,” and “Past the Barbary.”
