La Luz shared “California Finally” today, the second single teased off of their upcoming third studio album Floating Features, which is set for release on March 11. The track is the Los Angeles-based band’s homage to the “weird golden paradise” that they now call home. And it sounds undeniably like an ode to the California glamorously enshrined on screen, with its surf-rock gliding guitar riffs and lavish vocals.

“California Finally” drifts with skillful agility and steadily builds suspense, reaching its paramount declaration in the pre-chorus: “I made up my mind some time go / No one’s gonna tell me where I can go / California finally, my golden dream / Feels so good walking down the street.” The song then breaks continuously like waves with the repeated line, “I do what I wanna do / What I wanna do / What I wanna do.”

You can give “California Finally” a listen here. Along with the new tune, La Luz have also announced an expansive list of tour dates, a plethora of which will be taking place at SXSW in Austin.
