Initially formed in 2003 as a cello/guitar duo, LUFF has evolved into a four-piece group comprised of Mike Hurst (bass), Aleks Gylys (drums), Robin Pickering (guitar), and Sheila Sobolewski (guitar/vocals). Together the Brooklyn band creates driving, layered post-rock, sounding like a cross between Mogwai and Silversun Pickups. Each of their songs conveys various moods and seems well-suited for soundtracks — one moment it quivers and weaves, and the next it dips from a crunchy climactic high to a softer, melodic respite.

LUFF’s new EP, Maybe It’s Just Sleeping, is out November 11th.
