BALÚN ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD, UNVEILS NEW SOUND WITH LA NUEVA CIUDAD
New York, New York - August 10, 2016 - Brooklyn-based indie electronic band Balún’s long-anticipated sophomore record Prisma Tropical will be released by Good Child Music in early 2017. Coming out September 9th, the first single La Nueva Ciudad opens the door into a new world of sound for the quartet.
Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Balún’s early efforts received 4/5 stars from both Club Fonograma and All Music, the former calling Memoria Textil “gorgeously crafted,” while the latter enthused that Balún would “sound right at home… on a mix next to Aphex Twin [and] Modest Mouse.” Coverage in Remezcla, Time Out Chicago and Pitchfork helped to cement Balún’s best-of-both-worlds reputation. With the release of La Nueva Ciudad, Balún has added another dimension to that dynamic, incorporating elements of Puerto Rican folk and contrasting their dream-pop with a massive dembow riddim, resulting in a sound the band has dubbed “dreambow.”
La Nueva Ciudad was produced by Lawson White (So Percussion, Bryce Dessner, Gil-Scott Heron) and will be released digitally September 9th 2016 by Brooklyn label Good Child Music.
