Two of Miami’s most promising bands, Palomino Blond and Las Nubes, have joined together to release a split EP due out March 13th on BuFu Records.
In anticipation of the release, Palomino Blond shared their emotionally empowering single “Damage”. “Damage” fluidly blends punk-pop and garage rock with singer Carli Acosta’s too-cool-for-school vocal sound highlighted by punchy drums and some serious guitar shredding. The track alludes to the band’s side of the split which packs raw energy and unbridled choruses, while Las Nubes songs transition from melancholy dream-pop to blistering punk rock sung in English and Spanish. Both sides of the split were recorded and mixed by Jonathan Nuñez of Miami heavy legends Torche and mastered by Zach Weeks at GodCity Studio.
Acosta said of “Damage”:
"I wrote “Damage” when first line, "my thoughts, are they really so thoughtful at all?" came to mind and I just kept writing because it felt urgent. It was mostly me finally being honest with myself about how closed-off and kind of dishonest I was being about my emotions at the time. The tail end of the songs spins out into a guitar solo and dueling lead section that is always fun to play live."
