Dark Star b/w Pastel Sunrise
1. Dark Star
2. Pastel Sunrise
Chicano Batman release two brand-new tracks, the powerhouse new single “Dark Star” and its psychedelic B-side “Pastel Sunrise.” The songs, which mark the LA band’s first new material since their universally acclaimed 2020 album Invisible People, were both produced by Grammy-nominated producer John Hill (Portugal. The Man, Santigold, M.I.A.).
Singer Bardo Martinez says, “The hardness of the track lended itself to a more ominous meaning,” he adds.“The lyrics are multidimensional, in America there are so many layers of trauma that we all have to deal with that seep into our everyday behavior and attitudes towards each other. Genocide and slavery is embedded within the dna of American culture and the social strife gripping America today exemplifies this. ‘Dark Star’ is about an honest feeling that seeks to break the status quo, tear down the physical and mental walls that hold us back from simply being ourselves.”
