Some of the best guitar bands I’ve heard in the past year are from Latin America, and Quito, Ecuador’s alternativo group Da Pawn now joins the ranks with its latest single, “Años.” Moving away from its more folky past, I now hear The Strokes in the melodic guitars, bouncing bass, and raw vocals.
The band is set to release a new album this August called Summer in a Coma, so be on the lookout while you replay “Años” over and over in your car stereo, because this is the perfect outdoor summer song.
