Chicano Batman will release their new LP, Notebook Fantasy, on March 29 via ATO Records. The band have given fans a sneak preview of the album with a music video “Fly,” also now available to stream. The LP was produced by John Congleton (Erykah Badu, Death Cab For Cutie, St. Vincent).

Chicano Batman on “Fly”:

“”Fly” is a song that you hope for as a songwriter. Lighting in a bottle, straight up! It’s the kind that comes organically from the universe, and if you get out of the way, it takes shape effortlessly into the song it needs to be. Like a river flowing and weaving seamlessly through its banks. This song’s creation process was euphoric and full of many inspired and memorable moments in the studio from beginning to end. We hope those sentiments translate to you, the listener!”

The accompanying visual, directed by sisters Juliana and Nicola Giraffe, translates this energy to the screen in cinematic fashion. The ultra-camp 70s inspired clip features Bardo Martinez adorned in pearls and heavy makeup, Eduardo Arenas in a fringed cowboy suit, and Carlos Arévalo shredding a gold glittering guitar. Complete with a heart backdrop and flying dove, the music video is a lighthearted celebration of love.
