Hailing from Tijuana, Mexico and comprised of 21-year-olds Estrella Sanchez (vocals &guitar) and Amor Amezcua (drums & synths), Mint Field’s sound is organic, spacious, andinhabited by spectres that lurk behind rhythms, where Estrella’s angelic voice evokes asupernatural world of beauty and melancholy.

Pasar De Las Luces, their first for LA-based Innovative Leisure Records, is “a compilation ofour lives from two years ago to now” says the band. Its 13 immaculate tracks nod toeverything from dream pop to fuzz-saturated shoegaze. Album opener “El Parque Parecía No Tener Fin,” is a melodic number with haunting melodic lines where we can appreciate their post-punk tendencies. “Ciudad Satélite” has woven harmonies and crescendos that detonate into a flurry of feelings anchored by a dramatic bassline. “Quiero Otoño De Nuevo” goes full krautrock and is like an introverted, reflective and delicate Neu!. ”Cambios Del Pasar” borrows the distorted and imperfect guitar sounds of ‘90s indie bands like Yo Lat Tengo. “Nada Es Estático y Evoluciona” develops from minimalism into a silent scream and “Club De Chicas” is probably the peppiest song of the bunch. The whole record has a unique sound that makes it stand apart from projects by contemporaries.
