Equal doses of cold realism and emotional inspiration, moulded into an unforgettable groove.

She is vocalist, musician, and songwriter Kari Kimmel. He is producer and songwriter Joe Corcoran. They have over 90 million streams and thousands of film, television and album placements between them; and together, they are LUC, a futuristic garage-tronic duo from Los Angeles.

Kari's songs have been recorded by The Backstreet Boys, Ke$ha, Joe Jonas, and Demi Lovato, while her vocals have been featured on three platinum and five gold soundtracks. Joe's work as an engineer, mixer and musician earned him two platinum records, and a number one hit internationally with Lenka’s "The Show." LUC brings elements of garage rock and electro pop together with an irrepressible energy, while the melody from Kari Kimmel pairs with guitar hooks from Joe Corcoran in a way that feels immediately compelling. With a dynamic ebb-and-flow, and smooth synergy between tones, "Extraverdant" is equal doses of cold realism and emotional inspiration, moulded into an unforgettable groove. LUC is required listening for anyone curious about the pulse of modern music, and what it feels like to invent your own genre.

I paint it black
But it doesn't seem to fade
We're still standing here
Making all these trades

Extraverdant was released on Number Vun Records. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
