Mint Field Bring Mexican Psych To The UK

With their debut album, Pasar De Las Luces, set for release Feb 23 via Innovative Leisure, Tijuana-based psych duo Mint Field have shared a new single & video entitled "Quiero Otoño de Nuevo" from their upcoming album.

Speaking about the new single the band said "This was a song we wrote on the studio, we had the principal idea, we had the lyrics but we didn’t have the song finished and ready to record. We put everything together in the studio, was a beautiful and fun process. This track is about the horizon, shadows and how infinite they are."

Mint Field - 21-year-olds Estrella Sanchez and Amor Amezcua - have a sound that is organic, spacious, and inhabited by specters that lurk behind rhythms, where Estrella's angelic voice evokes a supernatural world of beauty and melancholy.  Since recording an initial EP, Primeras Salidas, in 2015, Mint Field have played Coachella, SXSW and have extensively toured the US and Mexico. In the summer of 2017 the band traveled to Detroit to record with producer Christopher Koltay. "We had a much clearer idea of what we wanted and we had the tools to make it."

'Pasar De Las Luces' shows a band committed to channeling their inspirations and influences to transmit sentiments of profound sorrow, nostalgia and beauty, revisiting sounds from the past to make them contemporary. 'Pasar De Las Luces's  13 immaculate tracks nod to everything from dream pop to krautrock to heavy stoner jams to fuzz-saturated shoegaze.
