An unlikely sound from San José, Costa Rica, Cabeza de Agua (literally translated as Water's Head but actually meaning Flash Flood in Costa Rican slang) brings an explosive form of passionate screamo and post-hardcore reminiscent of 90's acts like Orchid and Saetia. Formed by Diego Cubillo, Emanuel Mora and Mauricio Alvarado, all active in other Costa Rican bands playing shoegaze (Adiós Cometa, Lentamente) hardcore (Contraflores, Mal Visto), and slowcore (Decora). The trio join together around their love for this chaotic, emotive and heartfelt sound. The result is an intense EP that reinterprets their many influences in new, diverse ways, blending unusual pairings like ambient and spoken word into captivating and moving compositions. The album was recorded live at Red Stag Studio, in San José, Costa Rica, by Pablo Ocampo. This is a short but sweet gem.
