Cara De Idiota2020
A few weeks ago, we received “Uwu”, the first advance from the new AXOLOTES MEXICANOS album, which will arrive next year, after the band members have spent some time developing successful paths with their other projects (CAROLINA DURANTE, CONFETI DE ODIO, TEMERARIO MARIO, Stephen Please, NO FUCKS etc). And now we have this second advance from that highly anticipated new album that will be called “:3”, an appetizer that just makes us, if possible, even more excited and anxious about a release that promises to be one of the most important releases of 2021. “Cara De Idiota” is an exercise in pop with acoustic guitars and a clearer, more pristine focus, but with those distorted guitars doing their thing in the background. It is impeccable pop, full of energy, classicism, but without losing even a touch of the freshness and excitement. LOS PUNSETES, ALVVAYS, BEST COAST, COLA JET SET and even HEAVENLY all come to mind. With colorful manga-accented cover art by Olaya, produced by Juan Pedrayes, mixed and mastered by Carlos Hernández, “Cara De Idiota” shows the AXOLOTES unerring ability to make unquestionable hits, their sonic maturity, and their undeniable solidness. What’s more, to go along with the release of this Digital Single, Diego Jiménez has made a tremendously fun video, in which we can see an absolutely carefree AXOLOTES MEXICANOS, hitting each other, painting on each other, throwing all types of concoctions and goo on each other. It’s the kind of joy that is absolutely contagious.
