ATX Spotlight: BOAN Readies Mentiras LP
In case you’ve been hiding under a rock here in Austin, you’ve likely already heard BOAN, or at least I hope you have. The duo is made up of Jose Cota (of Ssleeperhold) and Mariana Saldana, and they’ve been working to create their minimal electronic music for some time, and finally are ready to share their new album, Mentiras, with you. While not all the group’s songs go this route, the usage of Spanish in the lyrics pays a bit of homage to the cultural heritage of the duo; it adds a bit of international flare to the budding electro pop they’ve carefully been crafting. Personally, I love the dark turn this track takes on in the second half. Holodeck Records will be releasing Mentiras on June 9th.
