Años Atrás: the video

Yay! We have a new video for our latest single “Años Atrás”! Our friends at REMEZCLA premiered it on their website and you can check out their review here:


Filmed on location in Puerto Rico and directed by Joel Perez Irizarry, the video features an unexpected turn of events in the friendship of two girls during the course of one night in Santurce. We are very excited and happy to share this video with you as it was a labor of pure DIY love.

New single: “Años Atrás”

Años Atras Cover

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.

The artwork for this single was made by the awesome illustrator and co-creator of Días Comic series, Rosaura Rodriguez. You can check out her work here: http://cosasrosaura.tumblr.com/



Club Fonograma premiered the track and wrote an awesome review you can read here: http://www.clubfonograma.com/2014/08/balun-anos-atras.html
