LOS ANGELES - July 29, 2014 - Today, indie rockers El Mató a un Policía Motorizado released their USA debut album La Dinastía Scorpio and premiered their new video “Mas o Menos Bien”.
With an artfully sweet lo-fi sound, El Mató a un Policía Motorizado conjures rock reminiscent of Pavement, Pixes and Guided by Voices. The band was recently featured at Seattle’s tastemaker independent radio station KEXP, where they performed a raucous in-studio live set.
El Mató a un Policía Motorizado recently made their US debut at New York’s LAMC (Latin Alternative Music Conference), where they won the prestigious ‘Artist Discovery Award’ which has previously been given to then up-and-coming artists like Carla Morrison, Kinky, Los Rakas and Astro.
La Dinastía Scorpio maintains the band’s characteristic charm while adding intricately crafted melodies and profound-yet-simple lyrics that range from confrontational politics to the perils of love, all written by the band’s vocalist Santiago Motorizado.
