19-year-old Mexican-American artist Los Retros, born Mauri Tapia, hails from Oxnard, California (the same hometown as one Anderson .Paak and Madlib) and has been making the type of music to get lost in through dreamlike sonics and sincere soft rock homages. Today the multi-instrumentalist returns with his new track “New Humanity” from his forthcoming Everlasting EP.

Retros has credited both American and Latin American AOR, or album-oriented rock, from the ’70s and ’80s for inspiring his sound. Tinged with romanticism and nostalgia, Los Retros emanates a certain warmth through his soundscapes that should immediately transport you to the West Coast. His name pays tribute to Chilean pop group Los Ángeles Negros.

After gaining some momentum with last year’s six song Retrospect EP, he took some time off to craft the latest record. “New Humanity” has subtle angelic choral echoes in the backdrop while vintage synths drive the track forward. It’s a perfect fit for a record coming out of Stones Throw, and has similar psychedelic qualities to Mild High Club in all the right ways.

Stay tuned for Everlasting to release June 18th via Stones Throw Records.
