Share a brand new single and video, “La Bomba” 

Announce huge UK and European tour for October / November / December 2024

The London-based, internationally assembled female instrumental four-piece, Los Bitchos, today share a brand new single and video, “La Bomba”. The first new material since their acclaimed 2022 debut, Let The Festivities Begin!, and last year’s follow-up EP, PAH!“La Bomba” is an 80’s Turkish psych-infused bop and comes accompanied by a video directed by long term artistic collaborator, Tom Mitchell.

The band said the following about the track, which was produced by Oli Barton Wood:

“La Bomba” is a burst of energy and power! It’s just such a fun song – we started playing it at festivals last summer and the energy felt so good!

The beginning stabs are what came to me (Serra) first as I was cooking in my kitchen. There’s something quite heroic and powerful about the opening guitar tone and the stabs underneath them. The twangy guitar tone cuts through the chaotic landscape of claps, pumping disco bassline and dreamy swirling synth sounds. The disco era influence is quite evident in this song, and I think the bassline sets the tone perfectly for this. Structurally the song delivers straight into a chorus (as Nile Rogers said, why wait). We wanted to keep this as close to a classic pop structure as possible, everything straight to the point. 

The cherries on top are the little ping pong drum sounds (think Ring My Bell, Anita Ward) – they just make the track go off and totally emulate the feelings of euphoria and pure energy running through it. 

About the video they continued: “As it’s a high energy, pumping song, we needed to have really dynamic visuals to go with that and bring the song to life. The video has lots of shiny, glitterball moments and moves between performance and surreal segments. We had so much fun with make-up and styling for this video. Josefine saw this thing on tik tok where you film in a way which gives the illusion you’re riding a horse, so obviously we had a go and put that in the video last minute on set.

Prepare to be dazzled with the most fierce and thrilling new creation, a track that stands out with this pure vibrance and exhilaration that only Los Bitchos can bring to their compositions. The vibrant and upbeat arrangement draws you in with the plethora of captivating hooks on offer and sultry tones. The percussive beats collide with that distinct cowbell hit and keep the momentum at an ecstatic high, whilst the textures and tones just ooze this impressive character and complexity, focusing the energy on the marvel of the melody that moves from start to finish.

One of the breakthrough bands of recent years, SerraPetale (guitar), AgustinaRuiz (synth / keytar), JosefineJonsson (bass) and NicCrawshaw (drums) are renowned for their incredibly fun live shows. The quartet has played standout performances at GlastonburySXSWCoachellaPrimaveraSoundRockEnSeineLatitude (main stage), ManchesterPsychFestWideAwakeFestivalGreenMan, performed as special guests of MacDeMarcoFranzFerdinandPavement, and KingGizzardAndTheLizardWizard and have toured extensively around the globe with many sold out headline shows.
