Capullo is the one Mexican band not getting enough love from the big Mexican trendy blogs or indie-rock radio, but they’re getting plenty of worship outside Mexico. Particularly in Spain, where the indie kids are used to this kind of eternal-youth pop, but I bet it’s never been this juicy. Capullo released an impressive debut earlier this year (Informatica Romantica Para Avanzados) via The Poni Republic, surprising us with a more loopy-than-usual sound and leaving out some of their more organic pieces such as “Merequeteke” and “La Conformidad.” There’s nothing healthier in this age of mp3 abundance than looking for a balance of intensity. If like us, you spent your Halloween listening to punk, Capullo’s very sugary new video is the way to find equilibrium.
If you don’t have a budget for your video, find other ways to shape your narrative. I always say, if you’re not big on mise-en-scene, go shoot Supermarket hallways; they’re so perfectly organized, so colorful, consumerism relies on visual wisdom. Capullo plans to put out another release really soon, meanwhile, don’t forget to grab Emilio Jose’s cover of “Merequeteke” on our latest compilation.
