‘Meme City’ By Tropa Magica, The New Single From The Upcoming Album

Meme City by Tropa Magica

Meme City by Tropa Magica

 

Psychedelic Cumbia punk band Tropa Magica, led by the Pacheco brothers, is about to release a new LP, ‘Tripiando Al Infinito En Mi Recamara’ (‘Tripping To Infinity In My Bedroom’) which will be a follow up to their 2018 self-titled album, and to a series of single, such as ‘Feels Like Tijuana’, that was embracing the group’s Mexican roots with a Café Tacvba taste, and ‘Chalino y Sus 7 Balazos,’ a devilish Cumbia surf party. But we will soon have a little taste of the new material with the opening track, ‘Meme City.’

I had the chance to listen to ‘Meme City,’ a very groovy song opening with a psychedelic Pink Floyd-esque soundscape, atmospheric vibrant guitar, UFO sounds, and engaging beats. It’s quite different from what Tropa Magica had released before, but soon the song transforms itself into a joyous synth-driven surf-guitar dancefloor filled with layered vocal harmonies and a ‘70s hallucinogenic haze. It’s the perfect track for your long summer nights, which opens with this line ‘I can see the stars in LED lights, I can now get high and it’s not a crime’ while some of the lyrics involve an invitation to ‘smoke my weed.’

I have seen Tropa Magica at local gigs and festivals several times, they were also opening for FIDLAR a few years ago at the House of Blues, and these past years, they played Desert Daze and the giant Tropicalia festival. Their sets always were a joyful toe-tapping trip with infectious bass lines, hypnotic grooves, ferocious vocal assaults, while each of their songs sounded like a reinvented patchwork of sounds, blending East LA rhythms with indie rock while echoing of a million of fiestas. Did I also say they were a riot?

The single ‘Meme City’ will be out this Tuesday, June 30th, listen to a snippet below:
