Costa Rican psych-rockers Las Robertas have unveiled the video for their new single “Our Imperium“.
The song is taken from their forthcoming new album ‘Love is the Answer‘, set to arrive on February 3 via Kanine Records. Pre-order your copy here.
Produced by Owen Morris (Oasis, The Verve, New Order), the track is a sonic trip back to the 90s, soaked in reverb and driven by a vibey bassline and lead singer Mercedes Oller’s hazy vocals.
Commenting on the lyrics, lead singer, Mercedes said:
“Being a woman in this world and these times is not easy, we all have to fight situations and train to become the best warriors we could ever be,” “We all wish for a promised land, and we’ll get there together.”
The track comes alongside a cosmic video directed by Costa Rican designer Alejandro Arturo, known as El Rayo, who shared:
“Inspired by 90s psychedelia and high contrast videos from that decade, we came up with this dramatic and soothing sequence. The lyrics really struck me at first glance. When Mercedes explained to me where they came from, I felt a need to deliver her message in the visuals too.”
