A representative of the vibrant independent scene in Mexico City, URSS Bajo el Árbol has already recorded two full-length albums.
The band has been celebrated for their unique sound, which combines elements of indie, shoegaze, progressive and psychedelic rock.
After the sudden departure of their vocalist, Samuel Cervantes, in late 2015, the band found a worthy replacement in Mauricio Solo, releasing their new single, “Profecía”, to a critical acclaim.
Their latest song, “Lunares”, with its trip-hop rhythm and uncanny atmosphere, demonstrates URSS Bajo el Árbol’s continued commitment to experimentation, developing their sound in yet another direction.
Additionally, the video for the song was inspired by the works of René Magritte, a Belgian surrealist painter who seems to be a major influence on bands in the Middle America.
URSS Bajo el Árbol’s third album is expected to drop soon and, based on the two singles so far, it will be well worth the wait.
