Los Blenders exploded out of the Mexico City by playing no-frills garage punk that inspired audiences to slam dance the night away. The group started the underground scene, playing small venues, house parties and indie fests. But after the release of their 2015 debut album Chavos Bien, the quartet gained momentum, playing U.S. tour dates, non-stop gigging in Mexico, playing Coachella in 2017 (as the only Mexican band on the bill), and starring in a commercial with the Black Eyed Pea’s will.i.am.
Our Song of the Day, “Ya No Te Quiero,” comes from Los Blenders’ sophomore album Ha Sido. The song proves that even though the band may be playing bigger stages, they haven’t given up their focus on being young, loud, heartbroken, and snotty. The song, released the day after Valentine’s Day in 2017, tells a universal story of love gone wrong. The lyric video, directed by Joey Muñoz, tells that story in a series of post-its stuck to a car. Catch Los Blenders at this year’s Freakout Festival, taking place November 16-17 in Ballard.
