London’s Is Tropical have made an EP with four electronic tracks to show their love for Latin America. Today we are delighted to premiere one of the tracks from that EP, called “Maria’s Colombia”, a great atmospheric electro tune with some heavy synth stabs and bright, melodic guitar riffs. This EP also includes the track “Venezuela”, featuring Get People (already posted here), which made its way on Kitsuné’s new compilation, “Kitsuné Maison 14 – The Tenth Anniversary Issue”.
As Simon Milner says: “We’ve made four electronic tracks to show our love for Latin America to put out whilst in the studio making more of a guitar based second LP. There’s “Venezuela”, “Oi Peru”, “Mexico” and this one “Maria’s Colombia”. “Maria’s Colombia” is for our friend that we lived with in London squats for many years before she got deported. It’s mixed and edited by Owen Pratt, who runs the studio we’re in, teching the album and does our live sound. He’s one sexy tall glass of water”.
The band is currently recording the follow-up to 2011’s debut album “Native To” in London with producer Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode, Crystal Fighters). Until then, download “Maria’s Colombia” for free below, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.
