Combo Chimbita Shares New Video For 'Revelacion (Candela)'

Combo Chimbita Shares New Video For 'Revelacion (Candela)'

Paying homage to elements of ancient ancestry while simultaneously looking to the future, Combo Chimbita has released their elemental new video for the passionate track "Revelación (Candela)" today.

Watch it below!

Vibrant colors fill the video - yellow represents temperance while white evokes wisdom, clarity and faith. Red of course represents fire, strength and love. "Fire refers to the impulse of life!" said lead singer Carolina Oliveros. "The fire symbolizes life itself - in not ceasing to stoke that fire and not extinguish it. Fire is the strength, intensity and hope of living. Fire takes away the bad but also gives way to a life -- germination of life."

"Revelación (Candela)" is featured on Ahomale, Combo Chimbita's sophomore effort and first for ANTI- Records that fuses together folkloric mystique, otherworldly psychedelia and a sash of enigmatic punk. With the help of producer Daniel Schlett (The War on Drugs, Modest Mouse), the group's rootsy experimental alchemy and metal strangeness take centerfold. Oliveros howls, yowls and chirps with gut-wrenching emotion; whether rock raw and soulful or bewitching like a shaman in a spiritual ceremony, her voice is always a multifaceted wonder.

Combo Chimbita begin a spring tour tomorrow that kicks off with a trio of shows in Mexico, the band's first-ever performances in the country.
