Once again, all the way from Monterrey, Mexico hails this indie-rock/dream-pop band: Bilbao. This band is made up of four talented young fellas: Abdiel Alonso Torres Hernandez (guitarist), Aarón Eusebio Lozano (vocalist), Carlos Ariel Lozano (drums), Álex Iván Hernández Salazar (bass and back-up vocals), and the recently added keyboardist: Alejandro Cortez. They have still not lost their all A's streak.
The band is getting ready to release their first single of six and they are currently working on the second one. Right now, the band is really influenced by dream-pop and with people like Mac de Marco. It's not uncommon for a band to change or tweak their sound until they find something that works for them.
"Tardecita Sin Ti" is the name of this first single, which reflects a feeling of nostalgia as the name suggests. Aarón wrote it post break-up and based on a relationship he had last year. Although, it's meant to make one feel nostalgic and written from a place of necessity, it will still include those loved synths and chorus' that make dream-pop so enjoyable. "Tardecita Sin Ti" will premier on January 31st. It will also be accompanied with a music video that is produced by an agency in Monterrey.
Near-future plans include touring and recording a live session that is not in the "typical" studio setting. This five-piece group of friends are excited to get things off the ground and hope people tune in for this journey. They also made sure to share that if one visits Monterrey, it's cool to check out spots like Barrio Antiguo and Paseo Santa Lucia.
