Today's song of the day, featured on The Midday Show with Cheryl Waters is "Cicada" by La Luz from the 2018 album Floating Features on Hardly Art.

Seattle-born but now Los Angeles-located quartet La Luz are releasing their follow-up to 2015's Weirdo Shrine. Titled Floating Features, the album will be out in May on their longtime label Hardly Art. Today's SOTD is "Cicada," the lead single off the album, shared last month. The dreamy surf-rock song comes along with a telenovela-style video for the song directed by Ryan Daniel Brown, becoming the perfect backdrop for a world of drama and intrigue. Floating Features is out May 11 via Hardly Art. La Luz will be in Seattle on Thursday, May 17 to play the Crocodile and Friday, May 18 at the Vera Project. - Jasmine Albertson
