This Chilean duo gets their psych on with “Amanece,” a hypnotic, reverb-drenched rocker that follows the tradition of ’60s West Coast hippie icons as well as the Velvet Underground in their austerity and use of noise.
“Amanece” is a trippy number with amazing instrumental explorations and great vocals, making this song an acid-dyed, hexagon-shaped gem. The video for the track, however, is not an explosion in Technicolor as one might expect. Rather, it’s shot in black and white and features a girl riding a bicycle to a huge house where Nueva Costa’s two members (Ángelo Santa Cruz and Daniel Bande) are jamming and chillin’ among the foliage.
