“Otra Vez” Petite Amie
Petite Amie recently released “Otra Vez,” a track off their new album, due out via Devil in the Woods Records. From the band, “”Otra Vez” reminds us how exhausting trying to adjust reality to your expectations can be. In it, a conversation between two people takes place, or perhaps it is an internal conversation, which has been revisited time and again. Thus, the very structure of the song alludes to that repetitive cycle in which one finds oneself until reaching a breaking point. There is no reason to talk about the same things over and over, if nothing changes and even less if there is no desire to change. The only thing left to do is to accept other people, oneself and the universe as they are.”
Petite Amie will be touring North America this summer with dates that kick off on August 3 in San Diego and conclude in New York City on August 28. They play a handful of dates with both Wild Wild Wets and Hooveriii. Along the way they will stop in Los Angeles, Nashville and Philadelphia.
Petite Amie began in 2020 when Carlos Medina, bassist for Little Jesus, brought together Aline Terrein (vocals), Isabel Dosal (vocals), Santiago Fernandez (bass) and Jacobo Velazquez (guitar) to create music together at Chimychanga Studio in Mexico City. Their critically acclaimed eponymous album was released in October 2021 and garnered attention from the likes of, among others, NPR, KCRW and KEXP. Following the release of their album, they put out an EP of remixes for the song “Elektro,” which features collaborations with Okey Dokey, BOYO and Lucia Tacchetti.
The band’s sound is influenced by the Beatles and Pink Floyd, and newer sounds like Big Thief, Magic Potion, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Crumb.
