Los Cogelones: “Danza de Sol”

by Rupert Bottenberg

Walking tall out of Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl and into a wide world that needs to hear them, Los Cogelones aren’t just Mexican, they’re Mexica, and they’re aggressively reclaiming their indigenous heritage. The four brothers have invested their sharp-edged, surf-flavoured garage punk with Nahuatl lyrics and fragments of First Nation culture, and tackle very current concerns like police brutality. Attending the release of their new album Hijos del Sol is their latest video, for the track “Danza de Sol”. Scraps of paper come to life most vividly in this animated effort from the talents at Mexico City’s Estudio Pneuma.
