With Retrospect, Los Retros walks closely in the footsteps of Mac DeMarco
At barely 19 years of age, Mauri Tapia seems destined for greatness. Under the moniker Los Retros, the Oxnard-born Californian (who shares a birthplace with Anderson .Paak), born from Mexican parents is a one-man band. His reputation grew on Youtube and so did his fanbase in souther California.
In his genes: 70s soft rock, and Latin-American pop music so cheerful it’s practically kitschy. Los Retros might as well be a reference to the underground Chilean group Los Ángeles Negros.
Signed to Stones Throw Records, no doubt by someone with taste, Mauri seems like a lighter version of Mac DeMarco. Much like the senior Canadian musician, he truly shines on catchy ballads, written with cheap guitars and vintage keyboards. Completely addictive.
