The Luka State

The Luka State



The Luka State are a rock band from Winsford,[1] Cheshire, in the North West of England, halfway between Manchester and Liverpool.

In 2013, the band released three singles: "Matter of Time,"[2] "30 Minute Break,"[3] and "Rain;"[4] all three being recorded by Sam Williams, best known for discovering alt-rock band Supergrass. They were picked up by Vulture Hound, which called the group "the epitome of modern Rock-n-roll."[5]

In 2014, Whitmore parted with founding members Ellis and Bell, the latter citing musical differences and leaving room for Jake Barnabas as drummer.[6] This change coincided with a change to a more electronically enhanced sound, described by Clash as "all epic guitars and contagious synth lines".[7]

With an ever-growing international following asking for new material the band headed to Edge Studios[8] to record their debut mini album The Price of Education.[9] The album was self-produced alongside the band’s manager Jim de Whalley,[10] and engineered by Mark Winterburn, who has worked with bands such as Plan B and Nine Black Alps.[11] Additional bass production was contributed by Simon Edwards of Fairground Attraction with the final mix being done by Chris Sheldon, who had mixed Foo Fighters' The Colour and the Shape[12] whilst producing Feeder and Oceansize.
