Yay, you’re back! Welcome to BTRtoday’s Discovery Corner podcast brought to you by, Levi’s.
Big Big Love resides in The Federal District of Mexico. Gerardo Beltrán (drums), Marco Carrión (lead guitar/synth), Patricio Mijares (bass), and Santiago Mijares (vocals/guitar/synth) are contributing to the world of rock and roll by spearheading a tidal wave of revival post-punk.
Their newest LP “Friendship” was released just this year on La Roma Records. It’s remnant of some real synth rock classics, such as Gang of Four, Echo and the Bunnymen, Joy Division, and even Animal Collective. Their track “Eurydice” opens with an eerie synth intro, adds a punk rock drum solo half way through, and ends strong with Santiago’s dreamy vocals.
They’ll be making their way to the U.S. soon for tour, so make sure to catch them–follow them on all those handy social media outlets to see where they’re headed or what they’re up to, and go check out “Friendship”–we promise you won’t regret it!
