Following the release of their acclaimed debut EP, Muertos return with their vital new creation: ‘Spin’. The digital single will be released via Roadkill Records and will be celebrated at The Lock Tavern in Camden the very next evening with The Sly Persuaders, Elêphant, and Pulaski.
Formed in London, the songwriting duo of DeAnna Avis and Marc Crane bonded over their mutual love of cult horror movies and classic psychedelia. Avis is Mexican-Californian, and grew up in a musical family playing from an early age - her father is the ‘Arpista Municipal de Tequila’, the official harpist for the town of Tequila. Outside of guitar duties, shoegazer Crane (from Essex) is a comic-book artist, lending his creative hand to the band’s cover-art and aesthetic.
New cut ‘Spin’ takes Muertos’ vintage garage sleaze and dials it right up - a full sonic assault of feedback collides with a motoric beat and the band’s signature duel vocals. Drawing influences from the likes of Jesus and Mary Chain, The Kills, and The Black Angels, this single marks the announcement of the band’s first long player released later in the year.
