Argentine trio Las Kellies will be announcing an extensive European tour very soon and return with a brand new video which offers a sneak peek at their forthcoming album – due out on Fire Records in July. For this track they’ve gone all slowed down dub, with the sexy, nighttime vibe of Peaking Lights.
The video for “Golden Love” was directed by DM BROS (who have produced all of Las Kellies’ videos). The band invited all of their friends in Buenos Aires to their rehearsal room and performed a private gig, which turned in to an outrageous and fun drunken party. The video explodes with excitement and transports you right to the underground clubs of Argentina.
The new album promises to be another wonderfully eclectic collection of tracks, drawing on their post-punk and punk roots, which were explored to full effect on their last record, Kellies, which received an 8/10 in the NME. We can expect a more pronounced dub influence thanks partly to the involvement of Iván Diaz Mathé (Ivi Lee), one of the most influential reggae-dub producers in Buenos Aires – having worked with the likes of Lee “Scratch” Perry and Mad Professor. The album also features guest appearances from another reggae legend, Dennis Bovell (who mixed their last album) as well as The Make Up and Chain and The Gang frontman, Ian Svenonius.
Their live shows are full of infectious energy, with their garage rhythms, teasing impertinence and Devo-inspired dress sense. Keep your eyes peeled for those European dates and get yourself psyched for their new album due this July.
