‘La Dinastía Scorpio’ conjures melodic noise rock reminiscent of Pavement, Guided by Voices and Built to Spill. The album maintains the band’s characteristic charm while adding intricately crafted melodies and profound-yet-simple lyrics that range from confrontational politics to the perils of love, all written by the band’s vocalist Santiago Motorizado.
Check out La Dinastîa Scorpio’s newly released music video, “Mas o Menos Bien” which premiered at The Big Takeover, who wrote “Rock n’roll is a universal language, and you can’t find better evidence of that than this fine new song from Argentina’s renowned melodic noise rockers, El Mató a un Policía Motorizado.”
Originally from La Plata, Argentina, El Mató a un Policía Motorizado celebrated the release of La Dinastía Scorpio in the United States with a couple great debut performances at New York’s Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC).
First they rocked the Mercury Lounge on July 9th.
They also played a stripped-down acoustic show at SOBs on July 11!
El Mato won the 2014 LAMC Artist Discovery award!
After the 2014 LAMC, El Mato played several additional shows the following week in San Diego and Pomona, California. You can check out when El Mato might be coming to your town on their website: El Mato a un Policia Motorizado
