Video + MP3: Dolores - "Cortafuegos"

“I’m guided by your voice, not by my own eyes,” claims Madrid’s shoegaze-throbbing breakthrough Dolores. This kind of overwhelmed, almost defeated sentiment in Dolores’ career-first single, “Cortafuegos,” is making us think they might just have the raw skills to sit among Mueran Humanos and Violeta Vil as part of this year’s transfixing line of industrialized rockers. Walking somewhere between the first albums of El Columpio Asesino and Triangulo de Amor Bizarro, this four-piece band has sold its soul to fiendish despots and has pushed all the right buttons in this undeniable hit. Like 90 percent of music videos coming out of Spain (or all Latin America for that matter), this clip of “Cortafuegos” is very reminiscent of the aesthetic dreamland of production house Canada. Here we get a fascinating voyeuristic glimpse of the seemingly dangerous encounters between human flesh and the physical world. Dolores’ first album will be published digitally, physically, and on vinyl through Origami Records in November.
