Snow In Mexico – Juno Beach
On a recent night out at a club I heard a few tracks that I was not familiar with which really struck me. One of the standouts was “Juno Beach” by Snow In Mexico. This Italian duo have been around for almost a decade, creating just four EPs during that time. Featuring only four tracks this release from 2015 still packs as much punch as most full albums.
The music contained here owes as much to shoegaze fuzziness as it does to electrodance pulses, producing a dreamy, yet poppy combo of the two. After about a dozen listens I have decided that I can’t choose a favorite track as they each offer something different and memorable. It turns out that this is the band’s only physical release, all the rest being digital only, which may be why I have never run across them before. I will certainly be getting the downloads of those other three EPs including this year’s release, Breathe.
