Hello Seahorse!: Bestia
While exploring some online documentation about the Mexico City based group Simplifires, I ran across another great independent three-piece from the city, surprisingly with another English name – Hello Seahorse!
As far as their release history, they put out their first LP ‘…And the Jellyfish Parade’ in 2006 followed by four free acoustic sessions released through their MySpace profile. In 2007 they released an EP titled ‘Hoy A Las Ocho’ that was available for free on their official website but only with a code that was given to fans at shows. In 2008 Magic Marker Records released ‘Hoy A Las Ocho’ as a full length LP in the US with supplemental tracks from their first LP.
Hello Seahorse! is now preparing to release a new full length album on May 19th, titled ‘Bestia’. The first single, also titled ‘Bestia’ was available for free on their official website up to a few days ago – and will hopefully be again once the site re-launches.
Also of note: The band has set foot in international stages such as Toluca’s MX Beat 2008 & Austin’s SXSW 2008 & 2009.
