Protistas “En Mis Genes”

By 22 August, 2014

Chile’s Protistas are back with a new video, representing our first taste of their new album, due later this year. Protistas have established themselves as one of Latin America’s finest indie-pop groups, and this latest track, “En Mis Genes” continues their classy mix of emotive vocals, driving bass and alternately grungy and jangly guitars, a Latin fusion of The Sea and Cake, New Pornographers and Weezer if you will.

The video plays like a B-Movie horror flick and perhaps shows a little of the group’s interests. It was directed by Matías Rojas Valencia and produced by Ana Gómez Kind and Andrés Acevedo. Check it out below.
