Lindy Vision is a three-piece band originating from Albuquerque. They’re made up of lead vocalist/synth Dorothy Cuylear, lead-guitarist Natasha Cuylear, and drummer/beat maker Carla Cuylear. The three sisters grew up in southern New Mexico listening to Motown legends such as the Temptations and the Supremes, and other heroes of their teenage years include David Bowie, Marc Bolan, The Clean, and Joy Division. Originally named Black Natives, the creation of the band was inspired by the Strokes’ debut album Is This It. The band made its public debut in 2012 in New Mexico under a name change from Black Natives to Lindy Vision. The name change was originally inspired by The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley:
“I can’t remember when it was that I actually learned how — that is to say, I can’t recall the specific night or nights. But dancing was the chief action at those ‘pad parties,’ so I’ve no doubt about how and why my initiation into lindy-hopping came about…that wild music wailing away on those portable record players, it didn’t take long to loosen up the dancing instincts in my African heritage.”
Over the years, the band has crafted a unique sound that is highly influenced by 80s new wave. The band manages to maintain a pop element with catchy melodies while also revealing honest personal experiences with their raw lyrical content. In the summer of 2014, the band made their first official release in the United States of their highly anticipated EP, Pink + Black. In the summer of 2015, the band released their first full length LP entitled Luck + Life to positive reviews.
