We are going back to Puerto Rico for our first show in the island in over two years. This will be an awesome show as we are going to play a set of mostly new songs. Like a lot. A lot. We’ll be joined by the awesome tropitrónicos Moreira, Jean, Nada, Furry Vowels and even Amigos Poderosos is going to make an appearance. This is a show you can’t miss! #tropitronica4ever
Well, well, well in the midst of all the excitement we forgot to post in this blog that we released the first single off our new album a couple of months ago! The song is called “Años Atrás” and it’s our attempt at bringing all back together and creating a genre that we dubbed as dreambow.
What is dreambow you might ask, it’s basically a combination of two things close to our hearts: dream-pop and dembow (Poco Jam riddim) from Jamaica which is very popular in Puerto Rico and planted the seeds for what the world currently knows as reggaeton. Our take on dembow is more on the 90’s side because that’s the stuff we heard everywhere growing up in Puerto Rico.
Club Fonograma premiered the track and wrote an awesome review you can read here: http://www.clubfonograma.com/2014/08/balun-anos-atras.html
Here are a bunch of other great write-ups and a feature we did for Puerto Rico Indie with our top 5 reggaeton videos from the 90’s.
Descarga #IndieMartin! A project by Puerto Rico Indie where bands from the PR indie scene (and the DR!) did unusual covers of Ricky Martin. We participated with our jungle-pop version of “Volverás”. Stream/download here: http://puertoricoindie.com/2014/08/26/indie-martin-compilado/
Join us on our first show of 2014! We’ve been busy since last year writing songs and doing pre-production for our new album. This is going to be an awesome show as we are going to be playing these new tunes and on the bill is our good friend Le Parody from Spain who’s touring the USA. You should check her out because she’s really really good! We also have a very special guest who’s going to play guitar with us. You may have heard his work on albums by Las Ardillas and Suturee
