ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Los Angeles psych-soul four-piece Chicano Batman have released their new album Invisible People, their most sonically-varied and cohesive album to date. The record is a statement of hope, a proclamation that we are all invisible people, and that despite race, class, or gender we can overcome our differences and stand together.
The group who combine “soul, surf and Tropicália into a raging blend of fire and excitement” (Rolling Stone) are celebrating the announcement with a new single and video for “Color my life.” Directed by George Mays, the video is a psychedelic collage of visuals that sees the band grooving to synths amongst palm tree-studded backgrounds of Los Angeles’ streets, beaches, and boardwalks.
Chicano Batman source their high-spirited alternative synthesis from tropicália, West Coast psychedelia, and late-’60s/early-’70s soul. Made up of Eduardo Arenas (bass, guitar, vocals), Carlos Arévalo (guitars), Bardo Martinez (lead vocals, keyboards, guitar), Gabriel Villa (drums), Chicano Batman has been well-respected locally for the best part of a decade. The group has opened for Jack White, Alabama Shakes, Vampire Weekend and Portugal. The Man in recent tours and has played major festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo. After signing with ATO Records, the group released Freedom is Free in 2017, teaming up with Leon Michels to craft an ambitious sonic experience that enhances the soul and R&B elements of their sound.
Los Mocochetes are a Chicano Funk band from Denver, CO. This colorful cast of characters fuses thoughtfully brazen, socio/politically charged song lyrics, groovilicious melodies and high-energy stage antics to create an immersive experience unlike anything you've ever seen before. Much like a machete, which can be used either as a tool to build or a weapon to kill, they have chosen to use their music to inspire and encourage positive social change, and they have a ton of fun along the way! Music is medicine, laughter is medicine, community is medicine. Come and get your love.
