Video: Jóvenes Adultos - "Horas Muertas"
Jóvenes Adultos brings together former Little Ethiopia players Santi and Sebas as well as Charly from Cementerio de Mascotas. Although the trio has barely begun booking shows in Mexico City, their opening statement has instantly made them our favorite YA punk band. The video for “Horas Muertas” represents the adolescent routine scored by jagged guitars and warped lazy vocals. Two characters emulate New Wave cool in a grocery store and on the street in the humblest of formats: VHS. This 90’s homage is also coded in subliminal messages (what’s up with that handshake? Canto del huauzontle? No saques si no vas a compartir) and climaxes with a sacrificial ritual. Typical day.
“Horas Muertas” is taken from the upcoming Tarjeta de Presentación, slated for later this spring.
