Late Nite Laundry is a local delight from Chicago, Illinois. Beginning with 5 members in 2019, the group restructured as a four-piece in mid 2020. Despite pandemic-inducing show cancellations — opening for Slow Pulp, touring with Winona Forever, and an official SXSW showcase — LNL made a comeback in 2021; refocusing their efforts on at-home recording and reintroducing themselves to the Chicago music scene. The Chicago Tribune summed it up well when they wrote, “Late Nite Laundry is recovering from a lot, but the Chicago band is forging ahead with its psychedelic soul sound.”
The band has become more fluid in their songwriting since restructuring, too. Guitarist Ari Lindo and bassist Emily Burlew have joined forces on vocals, while keyboardist Brenden Cabrera is the band's resident engineer and producer. Drummer Alex Santilli collaborates soulfully with Lindo, Burlew, and Cabrera within the writing process. Emily Burlew spearheads all design aspects for the band. Writing, recording, and promotion have all become in-house exercises for the quartet. As the future stretches on, Late Nite Laundry hopes to continue to build their work family and cover more ground within and beyond the Midwest.
