Brooklyn-based Miserable chillers share “La nave del olvido,” the first single off of the upcoming album Audience of Summer, due out August 7th via Baby Blue. A bright, dreamy, and slightly psychedelic indie pop track, “La nave del olvido” is about a deep sea voyage that discovered plastic bags and other trash amongst undiscovered creatures.
On the track, The Deli praises, “In this sense, the track, which borrows its name from Jose Jose song that bandleader Miguel Gallego’s mother used to play frequently in his youth, feels like an oasis hidden from the outside world’s prying eyes; dulcet baroque pop meets the relaxed attitude of 80s yacht rock, congealing to a final product that feels both dreamy and present, music perfect for poolside listening and internal reflection.”
Fifty percent of proceeds from Bandcamp digital purchases of the record and single will be donated to Bed-Stuy Strong.
“I believe that in times of economic and public health crisis, and amidst the violent failures of state policy to address the needs of vulnerable communities, the necessity of local, communal responses to communal needs is especially acute. I would like to support a local mutual aid group, Bed-Stuy Strong, which centers solidarity, care, and an imaginative approach to addressing the needs of the community and neighborhood that I live in. Mutual aid provides an alternative model for addressing need; and we badly need to embrace and imagine alternatives to our preexisting methods—be it the police, punitive and carceral responses to harm, or how we as a society provide for the healthcare of our neighbors.”
