Inspired by artists such as Lianne La Havas, Feist and Bon Iver, Luka exhibits a sound with touches of dreamy electro-pop, folk and soul. With only two people on stage, Luka’s live shows have proven a ‘not-to-miss’ on festivals across Europe. Together with her drummer Joost Wesseling, both playing multiple instruments, Luka puts on a surprisingly dynamic show that varies between ethereal soundscapes to grounded uplifting beats.
After the successfully self-released debut EP ‘Welcome, Generation Everything’ early 2018 and her Sofar Sounds session for single River going viral (300k+ views), they ended up playing over 80 shows throughout the Netherlands, Germany, Hungary and Italy that same year. Highlights include Sziget Festival (Budapest, Hungary), Motel Mozaïque (Rotterdam, the Netherlands) and the official aftershow for Elbow in Amsterdam.
After all these adventures, 2019 is all about writing and recording new music. Hidden away in the renowned Wisseloord Studios with producer Wannes Salomé (Klangstof) and studio engineer Sam Jones (a.o. Luwten, Klangstof, Kim Janssen) they are recording their debut album.
First single release is expected early 2020.
