Pesada by Las Nubes

Darkenin Heart

Las Nubes from Miami transform their love of nineties alternative rock into garage rock-based songs with psychedelic and noise rock influences. Their music is based on delightful melodies and dynamic sounds with indie sensibilities. The most recent single from the group's upcoming full length Tormentas Malsanas is Pesada.

The song sounds both drastic and melodic at the same time, and it strikes fiercely right away. It's one of the punchiest moments in the band's repertoire up to this point.

Las Nubes member Ale Campos describes: “During the time of George Floyd’s murder, I noticed several people who I followed online were posting non-stop about topics surrounding racial injustice in the U.S.. What I found strange was that they would share infographics written by other people instead of forming their own opinions, while also demonizing those who didn’t post as much as them. Additionally, when I would go to protests, I expected to see them all there but when the time came none of them showed. “Pesada” is about performative activism and the convenience of sitting at home and clicking “add to story” - how the delusion created by attention makes you think you’re absolved from being labeled as a bad character.”

On the soon to be released album, Campos adds: “Tormentas Malsanas is a culmination of personal experiences I had firsthand or felt secondhand through the lives of my close friends and relatives over the span of five years. The feelings brought on by these experiences were charged, sometimes stagnant and unforgiving, much like the summers here in South Florida. When it comes to expressing these personal narratives I always felt that articulating them through the lens of nature was something that anyone could feel a connection to. A lot of these songs were written at a time when it felt like the world was going to end, which also presents a feeling of longing to return to something “normal”.”

Tormentas Malsanas will be out on June 14th, 2024 via Sweat Records Records, Spinda Records, and Godless America Records.
