It feels like we've been waiting a small eternity for a proper full-length debut from the great Mexican guitar-pop duo Clubz. Now, thank god, The FADER has gotten word that it's coming in May, and new single "Popscuro" — its name a very on-brand amalgamation of "oscuridad," the Spanish word for darkness, and "pop" — will definitely be on it. "We really like the punching bass line," Clubz said of the track over email. "We really got into 'Dad Rock' sounds, like late-’70s and early-’80s disco, funk, and pop."
The official video, which was filmed in Barcelona and is debuting below, has a plot like a telenovela for cool kids. A handsome letterman and a wavy-haired outsider vie for the attention of a stylish woman, and Clubz's characteristically rich atmosphere pairs great with the murky romance. Her and the jock make a cute couple, but it's the loner who winds up stealing your heart. Like the song title suggets, this is music designed for introverts who like to dance too.
