Bandalos Chinos releases their new single “La Final,” from Virgin Music México and will be part of their next studio album ‘El Big Blue’ that will be released on May 6. In this new song the band strives for a more intimate single. It is a soft and bittersweet breakup ballad and full of metaphors and football analogies. The song recounts the decline and the final breakup of a romantic relationship in the melancholic tone of those who look back with affection but know that things are not meant to be.
With “La Final,” the band strives for a more intimate single with a soft and bittersweet breakup ballad full of metaphors and football analogies. The song recounts the decline and the final breakup of a romantic relationship in the melancholic tone of those who look back with affection but know there is nothing left. The irony of the football references (Llueve en el estadio – It rains in the stadium / Gritos en la radio – Screams on the radio / El arbitro pitó – The referee whistled: it’s the end) give the lyrics just the right humorous touch so that doesn’t become smothering. At the same time, the entire harmonic and rhythmic structure of the theme keeps it active and moving. Together with the minimalist and precise drums and rhythm guitars (one arpeggio, another that marks the accents of the bars), the union between harmony and rhythm that leads the bass is the perfect background for a hurt and subtle Goyo Degano and sadly tells the end of a love story.
“La Final” is released alongside a video directed by Bruno Adamovsky and Miranda Johansen. Filmed entirely in black and white, the video clones the singer of the band who is playing in a bowling alley; one Goyo sings and leads the band, the other one is crowded by fans on the field as another one watches attentively and excitedly the band in which he belongs.
Currently Bandalos Chinos is finishing up their Paranoia Tour where they will play in Uruguay on March 25, Chile on April 23 and the mythical Quilmes Rock festival on May 1. After these shows the band will embark on a tour of Spain where they will pass through Barcelona, Madrid, Vigo, Ourense, and Valencia and then continue through Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru.
Soon the band will announce more dates that will be part of their new tour, with a new album under their arm.
