Los Bitchos Drop New Single ‘La Bomba’

    Los Bitchos have returned with a new single called ‘La Bomba’. Check out the Tom Mitchell-directed video for it below.

    Discussing the song, which was produced by produced by Oli Barton Wood, the band said:

    “La Bomba” is a burst of energy and power! It’s just such a fun song – we started playing it at festivals last summer and the energy felt so good!”

    The beginning stabs are what came to me (Serra) first as I was cooking in my kitchen. There’s something quite heroic and powerful about the opening guitar tone and the stabs underneath them. The twangy guitar tone cuts through the chaotic landscape of claps, pumping disco bassline and dreamy swirling synth sounds. The disco era influence is quite evident in this song, and I think the bassline sets the tone perfectly for this. Structurally the song delivers straight into a chorus (as Nile Rogers said, why wait). We wanted to keep this as close to a classic pop structure as possible, everything straight to the point.

    The cherries on top are the little ping pong drum sounds (think Ring My Bell, Anita Ward) – they just make the track go off and totally emulate the feelings of euphoria and pure energy running through it.

    They added of the video: “As it’s a high energy, pumping song, we needed to have really dynamic visuals to go with that and bring the song to life. The video has lots of shiny, glitterball moments and moves between performance and surreal segments. We had so much fun with make-up and styling for this video. Josefine saw this thing on tik tok where you film in a way which gives the illusion you’re riding a horse, so obviously we had a go and put that in the video last minute on set.”

    Los Bitchos released their debut LP, Let the Festivities Begin!, in 2022. Revisit our Artist Spotlight interview with Los Bitchos.
