There’s seemingly always something fun happening in Chile, with new and impressive bands popping up all over the place. Jairo Manzur has certainly done well to keep up with everything in his work on Latinoamerica Shoegaze as well as his contributions to Muso Planet.
This time around the focus is on Santiago’s Slowkiss, a Santiago-based throwback to 90s alternative music. The quartet, which also includes Adelaida frontman Jurel Sonico, just released a 4-track demo EP on its Bandcamp page. And it’s only a dollar! The release is a solid introduction to the band’s sound which is somewhere between early Veruca Salt and the Pixies, with a dab of shoegaze influence here and there. Check it out and enjoy!
