Como Las Movies is an indie cumbia pop quartet from Austin led by chief songwriter Nelson Valente Aguilar.
An Austinite by way of border town McAllen, Texas, Aguilar combines his pan-Latin and pop musical influences into an unmissable duality that has been endearingly referred to as the Nuevo Wave sound. Since its inception, the band has been received with wide recognition and was nominated for “Best Latin Band” in the Austin Chronicle in 2019.
Alongside musical partners, Rene Chavez (vocals), Jaguar (Bass), and Alfredo Rios (percussion), the ensemble has showcased for SXSW, NPR Tiny Desk Tour, and Austin’s Blues on the Green summer series. In 2016, Como Las Movies collaborated with hip-hop artist Niña Dioz (MX) for a remix of her single “Mierda”. In 2018, Fania Records (NYC) filmed the band paying tribute to Latin soul artist, Ralfi Pagan for the East Austin Fania Sessions.
The band’s latest single release ¿Ypqsp? is a blend of bedroom pop flavors, punchy bass, crafty guitars & synth textures on a thick cumbia beat that perfectly reflects Como Las Movies’ self described blend of styles as IndieCumbiaPop.
It’s the first vinyl release (7 inch) and available on their website for purchase.
