Nashville, TN (March 6, 2012) — Zurich-based brother duo Hermanos Gutiérrez, comprised of Estevan and Alejandro Gutiérrez, are thrilled to share the music video to their stunning song, “Hermosa Drive.» Directed by El Oms, the animated video depicts the cartoon brothers driving through a quiet western smalltown — it’s simple, yet captivating, much like the brothers’ music. The brothers recently sat down for an in-depth convo with Aquarium Drunkard. You can read the interview and watch the video on their site HERE.
The brothers reflected, “The Hermosa Drive video is about connecting with strangers, letting them into your life because magical things can happen on a journey like this. We’re driving a bus in which everyone is welcome, no matter young or old. We just want to share and let others be part of this beautiful ride (Hermosa Drive).”
“Hermosa Drive” comes from the duo’s critically acclaimed album, El Bueno Y El Malo, released late last year. El Bueno Y El Malo is the band’s most epic journey yet: working with The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach at his Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, they crafted ten vivid compositions, where one brother’s rhythms and the other brother’s melodies twine around each other so that they become inextricable. The album has completely exploded since its release last fall, with over 16.5 million streams globally to date, and their monthly Spotify listeners tripling into the millions as well. The band has seen support from the likes of NPR Weekend Edition, KEXP, The Current, Variety, Relix, Rolling Stone, Consequence, and more!
The brothers also recently stopped by NPR Music’s Tiny Desk for an incredible, hypnotic performance that has over half a million views since its release a few weeks ago. Click HERE to watch it.
Following a completely sold-out tour in fall 2022, Hermanos Gutiérrez are returning to the States to play their carefully crafted, intimate songs this month. After performing at SXSW, the run of shows begins in Dallas, TX and travels across the western United States closing in Boulder, CO.
