Taking elements of 90's era "alternative" and filtering it through a kaleidoscope of texture and tone. http://www.hellohandshake.org/ Luz (pronounced LOOZ) has quickly built a buzz in the NoDa art district. Layering moods of quiet folk infused balladry to rough edge indie rock. http://www.luzwithaz.com/ <THESE ARE THE SOUNDS YOU'LL TALK ABOUT TOMORROW>

“Hello Handshake Emphasizes the Experimental: "Yet Hello Handshake refuses to be lumped into any sort of category, and they don’t need to tell you that in person. Anyone listening to the album will notice that the songs practice a certain brand of musical Tourette Syndrome. Melody is often broken by a manic state of instruments clashing that hits the listener without warning and can be a bit unsettling for the average music fan. It plays better when the CD is listened to front to back, but doesn’t work as well in the average iPod shuffle." "It’s all worth it in order “to take a step in the right direction for the music scene here,” said Proczak. “The complex can seem simple, and for us it’s just necessary.”"”
