Hello fellow music nerds. This week I luckily came across such an amazing track titled “Take” by Le Montro, which I can only really describe as an explosion of psychedelia. The song is a desert mirage that makes me feel like I’m floating, and I don’t care what you’re doing; I guarantee you’ll stop whatever you’re doing and think “What the fuck is this amazing song?”, as I did while riding the bus. Their self-described “positive darkness” is a euphoric ratio of light and dark elements that make me feel like I’m in a daze.
The elements to the song aren’t complex, but there’s a certain intricacy to how perfectly everything works together. The chunky, heavy bassline is the perfect counterpart to the airy guitar, which basically glitters throughout the track. And it seems like the vocals sort of mimic the same relationship that the guitar and bass have. While Radi Pina’s vocals seem warm and lethargic (in the best way possible), Clarissa Kelley’s vocals have a certain inviting brightness to them. Together, and in combination with all other elements, it forms this magnetic track that I can’t seem to stop listening to.
A shoutout to the other members of Le Montro I didn’t mention: Juanes Pulido (drums and percussion) and Cori Franks (bass). You’re all amazing, and I’m so excited to hear more from you guys.
Make sure to show Le Montro some love on their Instagram and Facebook pages under lemontro!
