Miami duo Las Nubes unleash a garage-pop storm with 'Would Be'

  • 2 min read

After years spent honing their sound on stages across North America, Miami-based duo Las Nubes are electrifying audiences once more with 'Would Be', an explosive blast of multilingual garage-pop. the new single is taken from the band's upcoming LP, 'Tormentas Malsanas' that marks their long-awaited return to the full-length album format.

Speaking about the new single, Ale Campos of the band shared, “There was a rumor going around about a live-action Power Puff Girls series being made by Diablo Cody. It was going to be set in the future and have them portrayed as adults looking back on their lives as crime-fighting little girls who missed out on being kids. I grew up in the ‘90s and PPG was one of my favorite cartoons, so I was really excited about this. One day Emile and I were talking about how cool it would be to write the theme song for the show, so “Would Be” was the result of that."

"It took about 20 minutes to write. At the time I felt like my best years were flying away before my eyes and I used that as inspiration for what it might feel like to be an aging ex-superhero. For the video I edited an old home movie of my father in his late 40s doing tricks with a soccer ball. Growing up in Argentina, he always dreamed of going pro. Soccer was his first love and he finally had his chance and played professionally for a year before getting seriously injured. He wasn’t able to continue his career in soccer after that, but he always carried the love for the sport in his heart. I felt like the video captured the essence of the song, which is the desire to take back those years you lost and just cherish them.”

Founded in 2017 by Ale Campos and Emile Milgrim, Las Nubes channel their Miami roots into a bilingual blend of 90s-infused punk rock and dreamy pop. Their energetic sonic explorations have opened doors to tours alongside Shannon and the Clams, Jens Lekman, The Coathangers, Sheer Mag, Mark Sultan, Torche, and Alice Bag.

'Tormentas Malsanas' – their first LP since their 2019 debut – drops June 14th via Sweat Records Records. The album’s lead single was released by the Thurston Moore-owned Ecstatic Peace / Daydream Library label, and their past work has been praised by non other than Iggy Pop, who even penned the album cover’s hype quote (they also backed Iggy as his first-ever all-female incarnation of The Stooges).
