Interview with Mechanic


Trans-Andean bridges that unite Chilean music with the world, culminating in an extrasensory Indie pop experience.

For Nico Parra and Nacho Ramirezliving in a world full of sound and melodic distinctions in relation to everyday life, is a fact that prevails in Mechanic since he can remember. A project that embraces the essence of indie pop since 2010 and that does not hesitate to exploit it to the fullest with each of its compositions.

In this way, the adventure begins to make sense for the Chilean duo, who return to the music scene with their new album material. Two mountain ranges, after being absent from the industry for seven years.

We believe in the ability to create something authentic, delicate and neat, but at the same time with a message that does not remain only in the underground (…) Today, that key point of indie pop continues, but now linked to Latin music, where we are looking for a more organic and digital proposal,” they indicated in an interview.

What at first emerged as an idea from producers, later became a cycle of musical renewal for Mechanicwhere ideas came to light with their recent LP in search of new horizons and connecting with ourselves.

Two Mountain Ranges “It represents our current moment and musical appreciation that we have, and thus our mind and creation open to collaborate with other artists to expand to other horizons.”

Over seven tracks, the album guides us on a journey of homemade and crunchy pop sounds that lie in the inevitable questions of life: love, broken hearts, instincts, over thoughts and more. A process that ordered the band from the most rhythmic to the simplest of being, starting with “You shine on the track” and ending with “A mirage”.

We seek to create something that fulfills us and makes us feel happy that is published and represents us, that is not the first thing that comes to mind. Our lyrics are not simple or basic, we like to see things in different ways with an authentic path,” they mentioned.

In this work, the proposal of Mechanic takes control of any mind to the point of achieving a pleasant and perpetual dance of indie pop, with the aim of catapulting it to the top of the new Latin American wave.

Only in this way does the group create trans-Andean bridges that unite Chilean music with talent, to culminate in an extrasensory experience with Women Island, Goyo Degano of Chinese Bandalos, System Surfers, Laser rays, Delfina Campos and Telescopes.

For now, Mechanic is preparing for a year full of surprises, with releases that will revitalize the group’s spirit on stage by 2024. All with the aim of bringing the experience of their music to as many cities as possible.
