To continue where I left off a few months ago, I present another talented artist/group from Mexico: Ruido Rosa.
Ruido Rosa is a rock n’ roll quartet from Mexico City featuring Alejandra Moreno (vocals), Daniela Sanchez (guitar), Carla Sarinana (bass) and Pablo Cantu (drums). Drummer Maryluz Alatriste left the band earlier this month for personal reasons and Cantu is serving as a temporary replacement.
The original members started the band in 2005 and had their first huge break in the U.S.A. in 2009 when they performed at SXSW. They recorded their self-titled debut album the following year with the help of Diego Solorzano, a.k.a. Rey Pila but not before opening for KISS during their three-city tour of Mexico. RR returned to SXSW in 2011 where they performed at La Banda Elastica’s showcase.
RR has a rock/classic rock sound which shouldn’t be a surprise as they claim Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Kinks and The Raconteurs as their primary influences. The two singles off their debut, “Dentro” and “Miedo A Caer,” have a bit of an early BRMC vibe. Listen below.
No word yet on a proper tour of the U.S.A. but hopefully there’ll be one next year.
