Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles. Monday, April 12, 2010. Last week at the prestigious House of Blues/Hollywood, the city of Los Angeles experienced a magnificent shockwave of electronic rhythms from Latin Americaâ€™s premiere electronica band, MOENIA.
With an electric nature and a high volt musical intensity, MOENIA presented an incredible concert to a full house for over an hour, during which fans sang along to each one of the bandâ€™s greatest hits: â€œDÃ©jame Entrarâ€, â€œLo Que Tu Digasâ€, â€œRegreso A Casaâ€, â€œLlegaste A Miâ€, â€œEn Que Momentoâ€, â€œNo Puedo Estar Sin Tiâ€, â€œNi Tu Ni Nadieâ€, â€œManto Estelarâ€ and â€œNo Dices MÃ¡sâ€, among others, and performed their newest single â€œNo Importa Que El Sol Se Mueraâ€.
During its visit to Los Angeles, MOENIA took the opportunity to meet the press and formally introduce their new album titled â€˜En ElÃ©ctricoâ€™, which includes a CD and a DVD set that will be available in the United States on April 27, 2010 at your favorite stores and will also be digitally available through iTunes.
MOENIAâ€™s musical sound waves are crossing over key cities in the United States, such as: Chicago (VLIve), South Padre, Island (Yuju Fest), and Los Angeles (House of Blues/Sunset), leaving lots of euphoric fanatics full of rhythm and dance in each club and theater.
Now, the band is getting ready to perform in Houston on April 23 at the Arena Theater and on April 25 at the Band Shell Amphitheater on Dallas, TX.
Their new album, â€œEn Electricoâ€ (CD & DVD), marks the return of the band to the studio and stage after a short brake in which each member worked on individual projects.
â€œEn ElÃ©ctricoâ€ is being released on OCESA-Sei Track (Mexico) and produced by Latin GRAMMYÂ© award winner Armando Ãvila, recognized for his work with leading contemporary Latin music artists, such as La 5Âª EstaciÃ³n, Aleks Syntek, RBD, and Moderatto, to mention a few. This album features a collection of new versions of MOENIAâ€™s greatest hits and special collaborations by MarÃa JosÃ©, Juan Carlos Lozano and Paco Huidobro. It also includes a DVD showcasing one of the bandâ€™s most memorable concerts.
â€œWe included new versions of each one of our songs, a little more â€˜rawâ€™, with lots of synth, but all recorded live or programmed live, very different from a studio album where you have many sequences and other things throughout,â€ said Alfonso Pichardo, lead vocalist of the group.
As a plus, â€˜En Electricoâ€™ features a DVD in which Jorge Soto (organ) explains how the content took shape, â€œwe played with a small crowd of 40 people, all live, so it has this vibe of a live performance but with super powerful synthesizers, drums – itâ€™s a very interesting process, you canâ€™t stop hearing MOENIA. Itâ€™s like an unplugged show but with a plugged feeling.â€
With eight albums and a career that spans almost two decades, the group that is frequently compared to transcendental bands like New Order, Erasure, The Cure, and Depeche Mode has perfected a sound that mixes experimental tones and electric rhythms almost poetically and is eager to share the latest expression of it with the USA.
MOENIA is composed of Alfonso Pichardo (vocals), Alejandro Ortega Midi (synth) and Jorge Soto (organ).
