Free Download: Dënver – "Los Surfistas Valientes"

Read more

That shoegaze cherry pop vibe will never go stale so long as Dënver keeps dishing out lullabies of electronic infusion. Their cracked salt and ground pepper blend goes easy over a surfer picnic. Like dried jerky this one leaves strands of juicy flavors stuck between the teeth, washed down with a nice cold brew. For all you diligent internet researchers and die hard fans, you may notice that “Los surfistas valientes” was previously released on the B-sides to their LP Música, Gramática, Gimnasia, available for download exclusively, despite not making it on the final cut of the album.

A little past the half way mark on the song the drum machines kick in, pumping up the soothing spirits in Mariana Montenegro vocals and mystifying lyrics. She reminds me of a punkier Cranberries or a subdued Avril Lavigne, for better or worst. And while the song teeters about like a dreamy interlude to some grandiose delirium, it double-times into a rock song and then quiets down again with electro exits, like an android counting sheep. If robots had taste buds this song would splash a faint pulse into their syner-synaptic charges.
