From the very first frame of Chilean band Ases Falsos‘ new music video for “Cae La Cortina,” you know you’re in for a kitschy, guilty pleasure, 80s adult-contemporary ride. The band, dressed in black, stand on a white set that has been illuminated like a suburban mall portrait studio. At their feet, lies a tiger.
With their exaggerated smoldering gazes and gestures, Cristobal Briceño and the rest of the band deliver George Michael in “Careless Whisper”-level cheesy sensuality. Watch all the way through to see Briceño drop the mic with a falsetto that brings him to the ground.
Don’t forget Ases Falsos will perform on both the Mexican (June 3rd) and Chilean (July 31st) editions of this year’s Festival Neutral.
