Comprised of 21-year-olds Estrella Sanchez and Amor Amezcua, Mint Field’s sound is organic, spacious, and inhabited by specters that lurk behind rhythms, where Estrella’s angelic voice evokes a supernatural world of beauty and melancholy. Mint Field have played Coachella, SXSW and have extensively toured the US and Mexico. The band went to Detroit to record with Christopher Koltay, they managed to channel their inspirations and influences to transmit sentiments of profound sorrow, nostalgia and immaculate beauty... Their vision comes alive on Pasar De Las Luces‘s 13 immaculate tracks that nod from dream pop to fuzz-saturated shoegaze.
Pasar De Las Luces will be released on 02/23 on Innovative Leisure.
« Mint Field's music sounds more like it belongs in the scenes of Berlin or Glasgow, with layer after layer of instrumental tracks that inevitably conjures their British sonic forefathers, yet the fact that their lyrics are in Spanish changes everything: a juxtaposition of the cold aesthetic with the warmth of a Latin tongue. These contrasts have created their particular dreamscape, with brutally touching results. »
