Sounds Like: The Jetsons with swizzle
She called some friends in Palm Springs who were throwing a Tiki event and booked their first show. “We got a distribution deal that same week,” she says. “We’ve been playing out ever since.”
Marrying spacey, “cocktail-y” sounds from the ’60s and ’70s with their own offbeat attitude, the band sounds like a vinyl record you might find propped on Austin Powers’ mini bar. Even though they’ve been at it for a decade now, there’s a newness in their music that makes you feel like grabbing a drink and seeing where the night goes.
Ten years is a long time for any band to stick together, particularly a throwback pop band in a city that prides itself on testing rock’s limits. But with four albums of original material under their belt and two more in the works for release this year, Lushy’s greatest asset may be that they’ve never been so much of the Seattle music scene—perhaps a byproduct of those years in Sodt’s basement, where it was easy to lose track of the music other local bands were making. “It always seems like we’re the exact opposite of every other band [in town],” Sodt says. Nims adds that their music has “never had anything to do with what’s been happening here. That’s not really by choice; it’s just…what feels progressive to us.”
Here we are having a typical Lushy meeting. Something about running out of bourbon.
