One of Costa Rica’s finest products, Las Robertas return with their brilliant new album Love Is The Answer on Kanine Records. Alongside the release comes the cosmic video for the album’s title-track.

Directed, shot and edited by Juan Álvarez Santos (Arma Blancx) the kaleidoscopic video takes the viewer on a journey through the complex emotional and healing processes following a breakup that culminates with love as the answer. “The track is about the moment when you realise that the best way to live life is through love,” lead singer Mercedes Oller said of the track. “Only love will bring you more freedom, happiness and power.

A labour of love, the band began recording Love Is The Answer with Owen Morris in December 2019 in Hermosillo, Mexico and with factors out of their hands finished the project sporadically throughout 2020 back in San José. A blend of 90s rock, shoegaze and drenched in influence from psyche rock, the album delivers nine measures of raw, fuzzed out, guitar driven brilliance with an infectious pop edge. Lyrically the LP finds love towards the universe, individual freedom and hope in a time where the world seems ever closer to being consumed in chaos. “It is what pain sounds like,” Felipe says of the album. “But if you go beyond the sad layers of the songs, you’ll end up with guidance  full of hope and strength to keep on going.” Listen to Love Is The Answer HERE.

Growing up in Costa Rica, an ecological country known for its biodiversity, the band found solace in the nature that surrounded them and gravitated towards each other at a young age for their joint love of music. Having played in various bands together over the years the group has built a small, but strong scene in a place where music venues are sparse. Now with a debut record in their hands the band has a will to take their music to all corners of the world.

With more live dates in the works for 2023, Las Robertas are set to soundtrack the summer. Don’t sleep on them!
