Paris-based Venezuelan quartet Insólito UniVerso is releasing their debut album called La candela del río, this November via Olindo Records.
Drawing from a plethora of musical styles the band takes inspiration from psychedelic folk, baroque singing, and traditional Latin American music, mainly through the rhythms and instruments of Venezuelan folklore.
Co-produced by The Heliocentrics’ Malcolm Catto, their upcoming LP shows two distinct sides; on the one hand, there’s euphoric music that begs to be danced to, while on the other there’s melancholy, mystery and devotion.
Serving a little taster to their global sound we’re showcasing Décima a song inspired by a Venezuelan “malagueña” from the North East region. Its slow and deep rhythm is met by Edgar Bonilla and guest Rodrigo González-Miqueles’ cosmic synth landscapes.
Pre-order a copy here ahead of its 9th November release, listen to the enchanting ‘Décima’ and check out the artwork and tracklist below.
