Today marks our inaugural mp3 premiere, and we are excited to announce it is from Los Encantados. The Brooklyn-based six-piece recently released its third and final installment of an EP series entitled, The Same Damned Soul, and has been busy working on new songs to comprise a debut full-length, which is slated for a Spring 2013 release. We are happy to share with you the first single from “Meet Me In Paradise.”
This song’s foundation is set in the surf, post-disco, pop-rock mold that the band so carefully created with its EPs. Acoustic guitars flutter as the song begins with a simple instrumental intro reminiscent of fellow New York indie rockers, The Walkmen. At the 30-second point, James Armstrong’s vocals kick in and float atop the steady guitar riff before percussion crashes and hurries the pace for the chorus. This pattern continues during the tune’s three-and-a-half minutes, ebbing and flowing between verse and chorus.
