Video + MP3: MKRNI - "Humedad"

Just when you thought Chile couldn’t get any cooler (you didn’t actually think that, did you?), a band like MKRNI comes along with a sweaty jam like this one. We think they pronounce their band name like the pasta, which is fine by us because we kinda want to chill out and make some macaroni art to this music. The video isn’t exactly chill, what with its pixilated Tetris-y background, the band’s loud (and totally awesome) attire, and the moves that they clearly picked up at the Daniel Riveros School of Dance, but the music is sending out some serious time to lounge vibes. Because when it’s the kind of humid hot that the band is talking about (if you’ve ever experienced the “humedad sin sol” of a New York City subway station in summer, you know all too well), all you want to do is lie in a hammock, sipping on some mango juice. In fact, that’s exactly what we’ll do. With “Humedad” on repeat in the background, of course. Catch MKRNI this month when they play a string of NYC shows, plus a couple of other east coast gigs.

  1. I danced to this at the ER the other day.

  2. Another Chilean band? Where you guys keep finding them? As a Chilean myself, I'm always surprised.

    They sound a bit like Los Labios, and something about them reminds me of Micachu and the Shapes.

    Very nice.

  3. Esos muchachos, que guapisisisiismos.

  4. So hot. I (by mistake) catch one of their shows, danced like never before in my 34 years of existence.

  5. que buen tema y que total la onda y estetica.. MKRNI rules OK.

    Call me whatever. But I'm watching and rewatching this clip 'cause I really want to bone that guy doing the beats. Gorgeous.
