Luff band members

Originally founded by guitarist and vocalist Sheila Sobolewski as a guitar and cello duo, LUFF has continually evolved and is currently working as a trio comprised of Sheila on guitar and vocals, Aleks Gylys on drums, and Mike Hurst on bass.
LUFF's most recent EP,
Maybe It's Just Sleeping was written in the aftermath of the tragic losses of vocalist / guitarist Sheila Sobolewski's mother to a fire and then guitarist Robin Pickering's step-mother to suicide, it’s a grievous love letter to the lost; a clutch of disquieting, powerful tracks that cover the intense and universal post-grief process.

In 2007, LUFF released their first full length,
Blanket Ice. The band is currently working on a new EP set to be released in 2015.

Luff band members

"Brooklyn, New York based outfit LUFF eased into our collective spine with the hum of heavy guitars to highlight some of the most beautifully warm female vocals ever to echo from this little page…  a distinct and consistent sound that contains every low-key ounce of dry melody that left us smitten years ago…"

"a long-time brewing post-punk/slowcore/shoegaze/art-pop trio whose music will crawl under your skin with their mix of subtlety and power."
— The Big Takeover

"The dreamy, epic sound of LUFF may readily invite comparisons to noise rockers and shoegazers like Mogwai, My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth, but this up and coming band remains uniquely captivating."
