Luca Mar – “Esperanza”

Luca Mar’s “Esperanza”, the second single from the group’s forthcoming debut album, is a lush success. The Bellingham, Washington-based act cohesively integrates aspects of shoegaze and electronic-pop for a chillwave-friendly aesthetic, resulting in a dreamy and laid-back sound that soars with particular beauty upon the track title’s audible repetition. Transporting listeners to a dream-like state with its hypnotic repetition and vibes akin to Washed Out, “Esperanza” is a nice start to a blissful weekend.
