The Bronx Channel Their Mariachi Alter Egos on “Mexican Summer”
The Bronx have released “Mexican Summer,” the latest single from their forthcoming album, Bronx VI.
Other singles from the album so far include “White Shadow,” “Superbloom” and “Watering the Well” (I may’ve missed one in there somewhere). All of them sound appropriately Bronxy — the blend of rock, blues and punk we’ve grown to love over the years — and “Mexican Summer,” with a mid-paced groove that refs the band-members’ alter egos in Mariachi el Bronx, is certainly no exception.
Vocalist Matt Caughthran explains of the tune:
“Musically and lyrically, ‘Mexican Summer” is the most The Bronx has ever [been] directly influenced by Mariachi el Bronx. The feel and groove of the song speak to you in rhythm, as the story of one man’s paradise lost burns violently into the night.”
