Laveda’s latest single “Surprise” is the first track to be released from their highly anticipated sophomore album. Vocalist/guitarist Ali Genevich and guitarist Jake Brooks spent summer of 2021 recording in Los Angeles with producer Dylan Herman (Beck, Pynkie). The record is due early 2023 on NY/VT based label Paper Cup and features the full live band with Dan Carr on bass and Joe Taurone on drums.

Their 2020 album debut What Happens After draws a post-apocolyptic landscape through layers of colorful sound and ethereal melodies. The tracks fuse polished pop song clarity with a 90's guitar driven sound reminiscent of groups like The Sundays or My Bloody Valentine. Founding members Jake and Ali “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.”
