Dark Cumbia from La MiniTK Del Miedo

By 03 July, 2012

Cumbia’s evil brother has surfaced in the shape of Bogotá’s La MiniTK Del Miedo. Adding industrial noise, brooding shoegaze atmospherics and a black sense of humour that would rival Killing Joke this trio have been released increasingly menacing (and more interesting) clips on Soundcloud over the past few months.

As evidence of that humour the group describe their music as “gótico tropical” (tropical gothic), “cumbia espantosa” (awful cumbia) and “hipnocumbia industrial” and their method of composing with just “two synths, a Ouija board and Garage Band.”

If you like your music DARK then you might just have found your new favourite band. Here are the latest two tracks from La MiniTK Del Miedo:
