With his EP, Luna, Latin artist Aaron Andreu proves that shoegaze and art-rock aren’t exclusively just for UK and US artists. The standout single, Piedra Solar, consistently and seamlessly switches between cuttingly angular guitar notes that any fans of Slowdive will feel familiar with and effect-laden chords that bring an evocatively tumultuous gravity to the release. Long after the abrupt intro, Piedra Solar will stay with you, Unilingual minds won’t be able to abstract the poetry from the lyrics, but the artful alchemy that melodies spill is blissfully universal.
Aaron Andreu’s debut EP, Luna, is now available to stream on Spotify.
