If I had one major takeaway from SXSW - other than music is headed in a good place - it would be that the future of music appears to be female. Point in case: all the rad femme bassists, drummers, lead singers, and all-female bands that showcased in Austin, TX this past week.
Insert into this equation, Rocío Bernardiner, Rocío Fernandez, and Inés Copertino from Buenos Aires, who collectively make up 3/4th of Amor Elefante.
All three share vocal duties and help create the driving melodies that, at times, remind me of a less dreamy version of Balún. And, their soothing harmonies definitely lean toward indie rock with some Caribbean influences on tracks like “La Verdad” & “Ay Diosito de Paraguay.”
Amor Elefante makes their LA debut at the Hi Hat this Wednesday, March 20th alongside Pan Caliente favs The Mexican Standoff. If Musica-Indie is your vibe... they are a must see!
Their 4th studio album, Billetes Falsos was released this month and is available on all streaming platforms.
