Los Saints don’t mess around on their new single. Some scratchy chords right out of the Strokes playbook, then - bam - the Chula Vista-bred trio launches into a chorus that feels like you’ve just taken off over the deep blue seas west of San Diego International Airport.” Buzzbands LA "The hypnotic jangle of guitars meshed with tortured-sounding vocals to conjure a sound in the realm of The Smiths, though also with a modern punch."- Obscure Sound"If you are looking for a new band to follow, look no further than Los Saints" The Honeypop
Los Saints are a trio from Chula Vista, CA comprised of first-generation Mexican-Americans newly signed to Enci Records (The Joy Formidable, Fences). Angel Mariscal, Emiliano Garcia, and Gianluca Exposito have just released their first single for the label, ‘Fouund You Somewhere’, which was recorded in Los Angeles by Keith Cooper of Dear Boy.
The track is a perfect introduction to Los Saints: a tale of longing and regret set to a rousing, stadium-worthy chorus. Already appearing on playlists including Prelude Press’ New Music That Doesn’t Suck the band aims to release an EP in May. Says Mariscal: “‘Fouund You Somewhere’ was written at the end of my first serious relationship. It’s about yearning for something that you lost and holding on to what could have been if things were done differently.” The video, directed by Mariscal, puts an amusingly literal spin on the song’s meaning, as he leads the band on a wild-eyed odyssey to the heart of the city in search of someone or… something.
