LAILA Laila (which means Night in Hebrew) is a hard hitting two-piece based out of Tel Aviv, Israel that leaves you reeling and wanting more. Without much of an online presence and no recorded music available to date, watching them live feels like a rare moment and leaves a larger impact for it. I saw them perform twice while they were in NYC and am looking forward to their first album with bated breath. Shot by Goni Riskin at the Tom Tom Magazine Frieze Art Festival with Naama Tsabar.
