Brooklyn and San Juan based electronic indie band Balún self-identify as transnational. The quartet that broke out of the Puerto Rican indie scene a decade ago has since undergone a formational odyssey through the industry, academia, and the stateside Puerto Rican experience. Named one of Pandora's Latin Artists to watch for 2017, Balún's single 'La Nueva Ciudad' broke into Spotify's Viral Top 50 globally and in eight countries across Latin America, setting the stage for their long awaited sophomore album 'Prisma Tropical,' which Noisey has named one of its 20 most anticipated Hispano-American albums of 2018. The forthcoming record focuses an incredibly wide field of genres and influences into a revelatory sound that evokes both of the band’s homes and the distance between them.
