Cabeza de Agua

Cabeza de Agua - Steadfast Records

An unlikely sound from San José, Costa Rica, Cabeza de Agua (literally translated as “Water’s Head” but actually meaning “Flash Flood” in Costa Rican slang) brings an explosive form of passionate screamo and post-hardcore reminiscent of 90’s acts like Orchid and Saetia. Formed by Diego Cubillo, Emanuel Mora and Mauricio Alvarado, also members of a varied number of local Costa Rican bands that range from Shoegaze, to Hardcore, to Slowcore, they decided to join together around their love for this chaotic, emotive and heartfelt sound that they have never explored before. The result is an intense EP that delves into their many influences, but reinterpreting them in a new, diverse way, even taking the freedom to mix them with unusual pairings like ambient music. Recorded live in Red Stag Studio, in San José, Costa Rica, by Pablo Ocampo, this is a short but sweet gem.
