MKRNI - Humedad

Leo Walton, VibesLeo WaltonComment

In a modern world that's smothered by Simon Cowell and his reality-tv-celeb-music mafia, moments of boundary-pushing originality, excitement and energy tend to be few and far between in the charts of British or American pop these days. But not so in Chile.

With a natural sense of rhythm, combined with a healthy taste for pop, techno, electro and synths, the Chilean alternative scene - lead by the brilliant Matias Aguayo and his Cómeme label - appear to have struck just the right balance of edge with fun. Throw in a smattering of stylish trippiness and you have MKRNI (aka Makaroni).
