You might have already heard Gravy Indie Union if you downloaded Quiero Club’s five-song remix package for “Que hacer en caso de oir voces” that we featured a while back. Theirs was probably the best of the remix bunch. Or maybe you stumbled upon them in passing, considering they’ve been together roughly since 2000. The electro-dance duo of Enrique Kwen and Core Cardenas is Gravy Indie Union, a Culiacán product with ’80s pop-rock and electronica sensibilities, genetically developed to make you dance in that “I’m in a new wave video” sort of way. Their album Grandes Exitos Vol. 3 should be a constant on any iPOD. Some songs sound like Duran Duran, others like Joy Division if Joy Division were…happy. “Bombeo” is a heart attack and “Sunshine” is a wave of euphoria. And now we have “Diskette,” the smoother, less-rock-inclined single from their upcoming EP Out for Lunch (out in March via Happy-Fi).
“Diskette” is more polished than other Gravy Indie Union tracks, and, unlike “Bombeo” and “Sunshine,” is in Spanish, so it houses a Latin pop quality foreign to the duo’s former Brit-sounding songs. It’s great for ushering in spring and the prospect of summer. And you can still flail ’80s style, that Gravy Indie Union quality remains intact.
