Premiere: Ponte Pilas – San Ignacio

Stefanie Schmid Rincon

Berlin based Scottish-Ecuadorian four piece Ponte Pilas are set to make 2022 their year with the release of their debut album due later this year. Backseat Mafia are delighted to premiere the new single ‘San Ignacio’. A song dedicated to one of their biggest heroes in Iggy Pop, and the fourth track to be taken from their debut album ‘Old Enough To Know Better’

Ponte Pilas says on ‘San Ignacio’:

“Paying credence to his lasting legacy on the world of popular music, this song casts Iggy in a
biblical light. His transformative gospel, unleashed back in the 60s upon an unsuspecting musical
public, changed the course of history. A Saint to believers in rock ‘n’ roll, all that remains is to say:

“All hail, San Ignacio.”

Being an ode to Iggy Pop you can hear the influence through the vocal delivery and snazzy guitar lines. The band have dropped a swaggering cool infected track here, with a wandering bass that enhances the subtle sneering vocals and those infectious guitar licks.
