"You Oughta Know" is a series that highlights favorite artists, groups, movies, and many other things... You Oughta Know!
A la mierda lo que piensen los demás, this is pure, fearless rock n roll, and it rocks! Even Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters says so (that's why he chose them to open for the Foo's in Colombia). Hailing from Colombia, the current epicenter of a beautiful Latin Rock boom that has taken over these last 4 years, Diamante Eléctrico has released their clip for a new self-released track titled "Deletar".
Influenced by blues, jazz and rock bands like The White Stripes, it's no surprise Diamante Eléctrico visited Jack White's record company in Nashville, Tennessee, Third Man Records, and recorded this super special track. Into the booth and straight pressed onto vinyl, Delatar sounds gritty, groovy and soulful all in one; exactly why I love this band so much. They make cool look and sound cool without seeming pretentious or obnoxious. They love music for the art of music and take the time to produce quality songs. No surprise why their album B is nominated in the 2015 Latin Grammys for Best Rock Album, and the song "Todo Va Arder" is also nominated for Best Rock Song.
I had the chance to meet and interview the band during the 2015 Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) and see them perform at our studios and I have to say, they are killing it, one of my favorite bands of the past 2 years and they deliver live exactly like on the album and then threefold. So do yourself a favor and check them out and understand the power behind this electric trio that is Diamante Eléctrico. #YouOughtaKnow
