Here we try to find new gems, sometimes not yet known from the public, but which we think should have a chance to get into the mainstream, or at least find their public. That is what we found with this new track.
Ernesto Wendy just released the single Wendy. It’s a very interesting track which blends some traces of glam rock with a punchier alt rock vibe. While listening, you can’t avoid asking yourself where the inspiration comes from. Well, the guy is living in Paris, comes from Chile, sings in Spanish, and his music is definitely British.
When asked about the musical influence he is caught into, he will cite King Crimson, or Luis Alberto Spinetta. There are harmonies and disharmonies in this track that take you into a dreamlike and bizarre world without making you nauseous. It’s definitely rock, the guitars are crunchy (Ernesto is the guitarist), the drums powerful, and the vocals intoxicating.
For once, you are dealing with a real musician, with a real band, and the track sounds terribly live, even if the careful production assures us that we are not at a grunge concert in the Parisian suburbs. But the different parts of the piece follow each other perfectly and at no time do we experience the boredom that sometimes awaits us when we listen to today’s rock bands.
It’s modern vintage, well done, punchy, very rock, and frankly deserving of a passage in your rock playlists.
