Oxnard-based artist Los Retros has released new single ‘Never Have Enough’. Following on from previously-released ‘Friends’ as the latest offering from his debut EP. The blissful new track showcases his skillset across instruments and vocals, as he lays down the funk
A first-generation Mexican-American, 19-year-old Los Retros began experimenting with music as a child, borrowing his older brother’s guitar at the early age of 8. At 16, he began to release his own songs online made with an old mixer, playing each instrument on the tracks himself. Inspired by record collections from his parents’ generation, Los Retrosformulated his own sound based on Central and South American soft-rock and alternative pop from the ’70s and ’80s, and his name is an homage to Chilean pop group Los Ángeles Negros. His first single ‘Someone To Spend Time With’, developed a rapid swell of support upon its release.
Los Retros’ debut EP ‘Retrospect’ is a tender journey that draws from personal experiences, told through ear-catching melodies, atmospheric sounds and a variety of instruments all played by Mauri himself. Across the EP’s six songs, Los Retros reflects on life and love with intimate songs that span across a variety of influences from R&B to psychedelic rock.
‘Retrospect’ is due 21st June via Stones Throw Records.
